Hi all, yes I know its been a while since we have posted but we have been so busy. Sorry! Since our last post Will has had another birthday and is now 12 going on 21.
On his birthday we took a trip into Brisbane, taking the City Cat from Bulimba into the city. Bulimba is a quaint little village with big money properties and is probably Australia's equivilant of Harrogate. We visited the B.B.C. (Brisbane Brits Club) meeting at the Pig and Whistle and had a spot of lunch and one or two sherberts before taking the ferry back to Bulimba for a curry. As nice as the curry was it just doesn't hit the spot like a U.K. curry, but Will enjoyed it so that was worth it. We took him to Skirmish the day before his birthday, which is like lazer quest except you share a forest with deadly snakes and spiders. I didn't think of that until it was too late! Anyway we all had a good time and no one got bit except by the Mozzies anyway.
We went there with our good friends Julie and Duncan A.K.A.(Barbara Windsor and Boycie) and their kids, Paisley, Danny, Abbey and Isla. They're real nice people and good fun which is very unusual for Cockneys! and have made settling in Australia a lot easier for us. After Skirmish we retired to the Mills residence for tea and biscuits. Well no not really it was a Barbi and a few bottles. A big night was had by all and our guests left in the early hours with echoes of Singstar going around the corridors of Walowa Street.
