    Just can't settle here

    A lot is just sheer luck of who you meet. I love Melbourne but I could live in most other cities - except Perth. Just not my sort of thing and never would be. So different in just about every way.

    Bringing over house plants

    No and I certainly wouldn’t try to smuggle one in,either. They grow so quickly and easily here you don’t need to.

    Air Fryers - any good?

    We have had a slow cooker for a while now but to be perfectly honest I wouldn’t get one again because they take up bench space and I can do most things just as well without it. Great for roast potatoes etc but then so is the oven! Depends what you want I suppose. Now I love my slow cooker and that I do use even though I have to get it out of the cupboard.

    Do you believe Prince Andrew ?

    Quite right. Not appropriate at all.

    Bayswater, Melbourne

    I worked there for 25 years. It is a suburb on the up- used to be not too good for various reasons.

    Platinum Jubilee 👑

    She's been very good and very dedicated. I am not a royalist and think it is time we grew up and moved on but if you have to have a monarch, you couldn't fault her.

    Do you consider yourself Australian?

    Haven’t felt British for over 40 years and it was reinforced when we went there just before all this Covid business. I suppose because all our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren are Aussies.

    Ping Pongers

    I find they never shut up, totally the opposite. Depends what circles you move in I suppose.

    We haven't had them for a few years now but last night I heard them here in the Yarra Valley. A welcome sound. Whilst we are at it, what happened to the bellbirds? Haven't heard any in years.

    Australia v China

    I loved Paul Keating. He was a statesman, better than any of the current mob. They all make me shudder, Liberal and Labour.

    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    My friend has a son in WA who she hasn't seen for over 2 years now. She lives in Victoria and had booked a ticket to go and see him this month. She is so,so sad that this now won't happen because of the stupid over reaction that is going on over there. She now thinks she will never see him again because she is close to 90 years old . He is her only son. Sooner or later they will have to open the borders, what is wrong with them? She is triple vaxxed. Personally I never want to go to WA again so we are planning on cancelling our trip to the Kimberleys and Broome later in the year. Rather spend our money in Queensland.

    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    I haven’t seen or heard of any ‘ huge protests’ in Australia but then I only live here. At this time of year most couldn’t be bothered, too busy.

    Visa advice

    8.30- 4.30 pm would be a short day here. Just saying.

    Stuck in ‘Paradise’

    Of course another thing is that the UK you left has changed a lot. Sometimes we remember it as it used to be. I don't know the place anymore now, it feels foreign to me the same as I suppose Australia feels for those who have been absent a long time.

    Cats must be kept on leads 😿🐈‍⬛

    So typical of Australia I’m afraid.
