Welcome to Our New Grandson

We had a surprise on Sunday when our second grandson arrived early in Perth.

Yuki had expected to have an elective Caesarean on Wednesday but this little guy decided to come early and she gave birth naturally on Sunday. He was born at 10.45 am, weighing 3.54 kg with a length of 52 cm

Jill had flown to Perth on Sunday to spend a few days with the family and to learn their routine before looking after our other grandson while Yuki was to in hospital. Instead, she was thrown into the deep end as the birth occurred whilst she was still in the air. I’m sure that she is managing very well.

In the meantime, I’ve stayed in Melbourne to look after our two granddaughters by picking them up after school, cooking dinner one night and making sure that they are looked after while their mum is working. I’m not as skilled at domestic chores as Jill, but I think that the house is in reasonable condition – the bed is getting made, the dishes are done and a load of washing is drying on the clothes line.

The baby doesn’t have a name as yet, so Im calling him ‘Boris’  until his proper name is announced.

Well, Christmas is over and we now move on to Phase Two – eating left overs from the fridge, enjoying the quiet days between Christmas and New Year (except for the frenzy of the Post Christmas sales) and getting ready to welcome in the New Year. Our Christmas, this year, was a wonderful set of […]

Goodbye to Perth

Over the last four days, we have had lots of fun exploring some more of Perth and spending time with our grandsons. I had offered to cook fish for lunch for the family on Good Friday, and if I say so myself, we had a nice meal of Barramundi in lemon cream sauce.. It was […]

Porepunkah – Our Last Night on This Trip

We delayed our departure from Deniliquin this morning because the local Museum opened at 10.00 am and we wanted the opportunity to see inside. This was the house in which Jill’s grandfather lived whilst he served as the Inspector of Police in the town from around 1931 to 1938. It appears that the police stopped […]
