Farewell Melbourne...its been great knowing you...

I couldn't nip off without putting a quick post out to you first, but I have to emphasis that it really is a quickie!
I'm just waiting for the car to take us off to the airport! 
I wrote a great post last night and whilst I was finishing it off....it went whoosh somewhere and disappeared so I'll have to redo that one once I arrive back in the UK. It was 1.30am so I had to stop. 
It was SO annoying!

Anyway we've had our last night in Melbourne and there's no more sleeps to go (sob sob) 
so it's talleyho and away we go!
I've been sent photographic evidence by my daughter that the weather over there in the UK has taken a turn for the better. 
The sun is out! Yay! 
That's unless my daughter has used photoshop for her pics ;D

But I'm really so sad to be leaving Melbourne...we've had a fantastic five years! 
Thank you everyone for everything!

(Flinders Street Station)

I'll be revisiting Melbourne again because I've still got gazillions of photos to share with you.
Thanks again Melbourne...it's been great knowing you and who knows we may be back!
Never say never eh?
Au revoir for now
I'll catch up with you when I've clicked my glitzy red heels and arrive home!
In the meantime take care everyone 


  1. hope your plane ride is terrific and muffy is fit as a fiddle when you pick her up at the other end! hugs and kisses my friend!!

    1. Yay...we made it and all pretty sane! ;D
      Muffy is incredible...you'd hardly believe she'd travelled 12,000 miles on her own, but then I suspect that she had a little holiday romance along the way. Apparently a little Jack Russell was on the same flight but DON'T TELL ZAC! ^..^ He doesn't need to know!

      Lovely to see you here Jenn, I hope all is well and I'll nip across to visit you soon. Lots happening as you can imagine but on day 3 we are finally beginning to feel human again.
      And guess what? THE SUN'S OUT! :D

  2. Thanks to Bloglovin I found your blog again. Only to find you are relocating to the UK. Good luck with the move - the journey - Muffin most of all. No tears, just look forward to new beginnings and I hope we meet again in Blogland soon.
    Hugs, Neet xx

    1. Hello Neet,
      I've just nipped back to make sure that I've been in contact with everyone that has visted me and wished me well for the move.
      I know we've already chatted today so I'll leave you in peace.

      Thanks for your lovely comment here :D

  3. Bye Denise,

    Sorry we didn't manage to have that last cuppa before your departure. What with my winter virus and then going away for a week, I just couldn't make it to town.

    Can't imagine how, but maybe we'll cross paths again - as you say, never say never. Of course, we'll be in touch as we have in blogland. That will continue to be a pleasure.

    Travel safely,

    1. Hello Ros,
      It was a shame that we didn't have that last cuppa but things were just so hectic at the end and you sounded like things were the same for you too.

      Yeah, who knows our paths may meet again sometime but in the meantime, I'd love to keep in touch and hear all about what's happening in Melbourne and your part of the world.

      Have a fantastic week and thanks for your good wishes...they obviously worked as we arrived safe and are settling into our new life.

  4. Have a good journey home, saying goodbye is never easy - but you're going home! Valerie

    1. Thanks Valerie for your well wishes. I really appreciate it ;D
      Have a great week whatever you have planned.

  5. Argh, I missed you. I have been away from the computer with the school holidays. Was going to write to you before you left and I missed you and your email will be different now (boo hoo). Please write to me when you get there.
    Hope all goes well on the trip and give Mufty a hug from me.
    Luv Von

    1. Dunna panic Von,
      See we chatted this morning and all is well again. As you now know I haven't changed my email, so we can keep in touch...nae probs as they say in this part of the world ;D

      I know this reply is slightly (cough) late but I'm just trying to tidy up after neglecting my blog for weeks.

      Will be in contact again soon xoxo

  6. Safe travels, my friend. I hope Muffy does well on her trip as well.

  9. hi Neesie
    A bitter sweet post then. Your daughter isn't cheating the sun has been out for 3 days OMG

  11. Wishing you a speedy, safe & comfortable journey. 'See' you when you're back here Neesie :0) xx
    ps - weather's fine ;)

    1. Can't believe I never saw these lovely comments Maria,
      I always try to reply as soon as I can but obviously with the move...they slipped by.
      You're good luck comment worked because the move went well and we're settling in nicely.
      Thanks for stopping by...I really appreciate it :D

  16. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥Good bye lovely lady. Only "symbolically" speaking of course. Australia was lucky to have you and now I'm lucky to be able to follow your adventures in Ol Blighty!! A closet POM like me (who dreams & swoons over all things English) is surely in for a treat! My orders are simply that you keep a camera with you AT ALL TIMES... you can take pics of your front porch every day as far as I'm concerned! Can't wait to hear what's next. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

  17. Awwwwww...leaving must be difficult. Hope all went well and that you'll be back here blogging again soon.

    1. OH MY...I've just found all these lovely comments and I've not replied! Shame on me.
      Thanks for you're comment. The move was a crazy time but it all went really well.
      We're now settling into our new (old) home and it feels good :D
      Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate it and again sorry for the delay :$


I get so excited to see you here and love to read your thoughts and comments.
I always try to answer each one personally (I think it's only polite)
...♥...I truly appreciate your precious time here so thank you ...♥...
