Well, I have just spent about 10 days in Dandenong and Melbourne. Here's what I got up to, sorry it's not too detailed:

Tuesday: Relaxing day, popped to the shops with my great aunt and uncle and just chilled out

Wednesday: The Neighbours Tour! I went to the cul-de-sac where it is filmed, saw some of the outdoor sets and got to meet an actress I just about remembered. Probably a little over priced, but awesome nevertheless!

Thursday: Christmas Day, we headed up to The Dandenong Hills for a fairly traditional Christmas meal, my biggest Christmas ever with 17 people, 5 of which were blood relations!

Friday: Boxing Day, I'm afraid I watched Mamma Mia (3rd time in a month), Home Alone 3 and ate chocolate, exactly what Boxing Day is about!

Saturday: I headed into Melbourne to see a film exhibition, I saw some sets from various films including Australia. I attempted to shop but got very tired and just bought vitamins!

Sunday: With my Dad's cousin, his wife and their son, I headed to Healsville Sanctuary, where we saw lots of Australian animals. I was most excited about seeing a Platypus, the were so cool and small. Awesome.
