|Nothing says "Welcome to Perth" quite like a Shingle-Back Lizard the size of my arm, sunning himself on our steps!|
He has been playing with the other kids at the club, and today spent the afternoon at 3-years-in-Calgary boy's house. I'd say those two school days paid off! The other significant dividend is no anxiety over this two-week school break before the start of Term 2.
|Did I mention J's sailing instructor is French?|
I have met two of J's sailing club/school mates' mums this week and we've had a couple of good chats, especially with 3-years-in-Calgary boy's mum so am looking forward to building on that. In the meantime, I am e-mailing and texting my supportive Melbourne peeps and even had an evening at the beach and fish & chips back at our house with one Melbourne family who were holidaying in Perth. That felt good.

After several days of 30c+ days, it dropped back to mid-20s and, frankly, it was a nice break to fling the doors open all day, especially with furniture removalists, refrigerator delivery men and other maintenance people in and out all day. Murphy thought we were moving again and tried several runners but I am on to her wily ways now.
