Nine days of baby sitting in Melbourne came to an end. Mummy was coming home. We went to Melbourne airport to meet her from LA and to say goodbye to me. It had been great getting to know the boys better but I was looking forward to getting home and ready to move house in three days.
I hugged the boys goodbye and I had a few minutes to hug Sonya before I caught my plane to Brisbane.
When I arrived home, our other daughter, Carol and SIL David, had helped Bill pack his office, the garage and laundry. They had flown from Sydney. I had a few last minute items to pack and I said another goodbye to my garden.
The truck arrived.
The house was sad and empty.
We went across the road to say goodbye to the neighbours and to look down on our house and garden and say goodbye.
Last time I stand here.
Last time he stands here. Off we go to our new home, an apartment in Elements Third Age Living @ Springwood.
Our new home
The apartment was choc-a-block full of boxes but our great kids flew from Sydney again to help unpack.

I'm happy with the gardens.
Then it was off to buy a new car. A Mazda CX3 Maxx little SUV
Here's to a new life.
