So Molly had a sleepover in Melbourne's East before we then hosted her friend Olivia to a sleepover with us - she now knows NOT to share a single bed with Molly; blanket hog and a kicker and groper of some renown!
Molly was very fortunate that her Uncle Graeme downloaded the entire 10 series of Friends to her iPod. I think in 12 months time we will all be very grateful! During the longer drives Molly likes to tune out and watch a few episodes. I find it hilarious as I can dip my rear view mirror and watch her giggling in complete isolation ofanything going on around her!
Catching up with friends was great and we are looking forward to being forwarded an address to look up in St Petersburgh on behalf of one "young" lady. We never knew we were friends with the now defunct Russian aristocracy! Great dinners in Melbourne as well as drinks and farm visits to old friends have reminded us how travel can be so much more than just doing new things!
At this point it is all very surreal, not working for a year I am sure I can get used to but my big fear is that it will all pass so quickly! We are still coming to terms with Blogging and keeping in touch. Lots of old friends have been emailing us and at times I wonder if we should also be using something like Facebook but to be honest I think we would become overwhelmed. So for now it is the website and emails.
I note we have had our first donation, anonymous on the web but I can use this forum to say a huge thankyou to our dear friend Beverley - we feel like we can achieve great things for others courtesy of your thoughtfulness and generosity! As Paul Kelly the singer/songwriter once penned; From Little Things, Big Things Grow.
On the Where's Molly Blog you may see that Burra leaves a good impression on me - I love the town for some reason. Anyway, Breaker Morant was filmed there and actually has some relevance to what we are doing. In the movie Bryan Brown pleads to 'Breaker' Morant by using his name, Harry (though his name was actually Henry, he was called Harry). The accent and tone of Bryan Brown in the movie always appealed to me as the "classic Aussie" and was a strong influence on me when we chose a name for our Harry.
I've been a font of information tonight eh!!????
