Thursday 17 May
Warm welcome at the Williams
We are now staying with Kathy Jean, Scott, little Anna and the even more diminutive Jack. Lots of wine has been consumed as well as copious gorging on Kathleen's sumptuous cooking.
This morning was the embarrassment of Hey Dee Ho for Kathleen and me. It involved lots of singing at the top of our voices, jumping up & down like a fools & generally being completely uncool. Luckily Jack & Anna were with us & they thought it was the best time ever. I was very pleased I had left the camera & Andrew at home. There is simply no record. K & I agreed - what happened in that room, stays in that room.
This afternoon we went in search of child friendly cellar doors for a bit of a wine tasting indulgence. 10 tastings & a cheese plate later, as well as a quick stop at the chocolate factory & we were happy as pigs in mud. Even the kids didn't mind as there were bribes a plenty for good behaviour. Works like a charm. We've added a few pics to the Melbourne portfolio r.e. the above, click here to view them.
Tomorrow it is market day & lunch in the city, followed by lots of drinking and dinner somewhere funky with Selena, Nathan, Karly, Simon & Shane.
Saturday New Zealand. Note to self: do not drink too much Friday night. Please.
