Hello everyone It was a good idea to book a window seat for my afternoon flight here- flying over the Alps and then down the coast of Italy I could see Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples with Capri and then over Sicily – there was Mount Etna. And in the arrivals hall massive hugs from my lovely Richard and Catherine – just what I have been waiting for these past 7 months. Their apartment in S... Read Full Entry

Hi Lynne Good to hear from you while we are in Wellington again for another weekend with the newly engaged. Valletta is often on the cruise ship itineraries so we might well get there before too long. Ruth and Tim are going to travel a while before they get married so Mac and I will not be sitting still as you can imagine!! Have just had an offer of an exchange to go back to the Australian Open tennis next January so think we will accept that. Melbourne is always appealing! Take care. Jocelyn & Mac xx

You do get around!
Hi Lynne - what a lovely post. I must say that you look very glam in your 'going out to dinner' photos! The Rabbit Casserole sounds delicious. I can tell you are revelling in the great weather and fantastic company. Anthony & I are literally just off the plane back from 7 weeks in South America (Peru in Machu Picchu, Bolivia, Argentina and Iguazu Falls in Brazil). I did email you as part of an update but of course, I had the wrong email address on our laptop as I forgot to update it after the 'hacking/new email address' incident. Some time ago you wrote to ask after Edward. After his bone marrow transplant, he improved significantly but the day he was checked out from the hospital, he got a fungal infection which meant daily trips to the hospital for several months. After some very stressful months (particularly for Mum & Warren who had to be at the hospital every day) he is finally on the mend from the infection and just the other day received some very good news that his blood is free of leukaemia cells. Whilst it's early days yet, this is obviously good news. Thanks for your kind thoughts and asking after us. I'm sure it will be quite a while before you come back here but remember that you are always welcome and we look forward to meeting you face to face one day!

Lynne, Bill & I were in Malta in 2004, just looked at my pics, we went to a fabulous place, the Hypogeum, an old temple built underground, can't remember exactly where but on mainland, bus ride from Valletta, google name. We had to book as only few people allowed down at a time, if you haven't been do go it was wonderful. WHO site. On Gozo we visited church, again can't remember where, but they couldn't afford dome and created a tromped'oeuil, again fantastic. Have fun and what is Richard doing in Malta?
