Welsh Poppy - agree with John - 8 miles a really good distance - good stuff!
Aws - I think you win in the marriage stakes!
Columba - daughter still making up her mind. I think she'll take her husband and her 5 year old, so it is looking like Gold Coast at the moment, as that's where all the amusement parks are. We did a family trip there when the two older girls were young and we had a wonderful time.
Think if she was only thinking about herself, she would choose Sydney or Melbourne. The middle grand daughter would be happy if she chose Gold Coast, as she really wants to go to Melbourne, so would be feeling really left out if she chose Melbourne.
My son is running the Melbourne marathon later in the year, and I thought she might put the trip for 2 towards that, hoping the rest of us would go too. It is a plan, but hard to organise 8 of us, and there is always our dog Mae to think about.
Spent yesterday afternoon water-blasting one of our decks! Only two more to go! Feeling very tired this morning, but will try to run, don't know how successful that will be! If the leg doesn't want to work, I'll do a short walk.
