Glad you are well again and having fun
Hi Catherine, Glad you are feeling up to scratch again, the penguins and kangaroos and midnight movies sound like such fun, and I laughed when you said Harold Bishop is a bit creepy, I can imagine that! Wow, I cant believe your time to come home is fast approaching, it has flown past. Sorry to hear your sad news, but I bet your nan was really proud of you, and wouldve been happy you stuck it out there. Take care J x
