  1. I am THRILLED for you all. And envious that you have such a supportive group on your doorstep. Have a fabulous launch and enjoy every success that comes your way. You KNOW I know what a big achievement this is. xxxx

  2. Hi Ingrid,

    Thanks for this! Well done to you all and hope the launch night goes really well👍🎉🎊

    I have been meaning to let you know that Graeme and I are relocating to Busselton in November with his work.😱 We hope to be settled before the end of that month.

    It all happened very quickly, and we are now in the throes of all the stuff that rears its head when one make these life changing decisions!

    We will rent out our house here, and hopefully find something suitable to rent there. I will commute to work initially and stay over with a friend until, fingers crossed, I find something there😳

    Of course the good news is that I may get to see a bit more of you, Kathy and Barb!

    Funny how life can change in an instant hey?!

    How are you progressing with your trip plans? Carolyn came up last Sunday to give me advice on how to pack with the minimum of fuss! She did a brilliant job and my case is literally half empty:) I am now thinking of other stuff I can fill it up with😅

    Anyway, I’ll keep in touch and will let you know how things progress for us.

    Enjoy your travels, and look forward to a catch up sometime when we’re both back in WA!
