Thanks for the postcard from Waikiki and also the video of The Lost Gardens of Heligan that you sent me for Christmas, I really enjoyed it, it’s so marvellous that it could be bought back to life and lovely to follow it through, what a big job to tackle, lots of hard work but so rewarding.
Well it’s really March now, good that you can now say your baby will arrive this month and nice to have your Mum over there with you to help with Brady and your new bub when it arrives.
Many thanks for your phone call, beaut birthday card and lovely flowers. I was taken out for tea on my birthday to the Central Hotel in Lakes Entrance, there were eight of us, it was very nice, I even had a birthday cake. I certainly missed Pop, each special time is so hard to get through, but I have some lovely memories of by gone days (sic). Your Dad took a bunch of potatoes from our garden to put on Pop’s grave on his way home to “Poo Town” on what would have been Pop’s 80th birthday. I have taken snaps of the plaque on Pop’s grave, I’ll send one to you when I finish the film and have it developed.
The weather is very hot, it was 35° today, the weather man says a change is on the way with four cooler days and then heating up again. February was hot and humid with very little rain. It’s been a real apple and pear year but oh between the sun, the birds and the possums it’s been a battle.
Well must away it’s too hot to sleep tonight and I’ve had the air conditioner on all day.
Take care S and all the best for a speedy and safe delivery of your baby. A big kiss and cuddle to little Brady and please pass on my love to your Mother.
