We started this morning with a leisurely breakfast at Pelican and then headed down to Frankston to see the sand sculptures. After that we played on the beach and at the playground.

A Quiet Journey Home
Bath Time at Auntie Maz & Uncle Harry’s House
The afternoon saw us enjoy a nice cold glass of vino at the Victorian Wine Centre and then we headed to Uncle Harry’s for dinner and a bath before heading home.
I’m back to work tomorrow so really enjoyed today!
Ella & Charlie came to work with me today while Alan ran all the last minute errands. They thought it was such an adventure getting the tram so early in the morning, exploring the big building that is the NAB head office in Docklands, ordering their hot chocolates in the cafe, eating far too many lollies (thanks Joy!!) and sitting at their ‘desks’ colouring and chatting to everyone.

Ella finished kindergarten this week all set to be starting school in February. She has had a wonderful couple of years at Civic Kindergarten and was quite emotional during their end of term party. She says she’ll miss Annette (teacher) but it’s ok because she can visit her when she picks up Charlie. Here are some pictures from the last day:

OK here in Melbourne we’ve been complaining of all the rain & humidity of late, especially on the weekends, but when I spoke to mum & dad during the week and realised just how cold it is at home in Edinburgh I realised just how lucky we are. Here are some pictures taken from their house…..it looks beautiful but not if you’re living it for any length of time!
Its not often that we get a photo of Ella, Charlie, Ruby & Poppy together and everyone looking at the camera but today….success!! Here they are all dressed up to go out for Uncle Harry’s birthday lunch.
Everyone was excited when the Christmas tree was delivered this morning. Here are Ella & Charlie decorating it:
And this is where we were an hour later, the beach! Believe me its still a foreign concept to be decorating a christmas tree when its 29 degrees outside!!
