I gotta say I'm a little excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hubs and I are taking another quick trip back to Brisbane this weekend for my Grandpa's 90th birthday. Even though we'll be completely exhausted when we get home on Sunday, especially now that there's a time difference, it's totally worth it. We arrive in the Vegas Friday night at 11pm, then it'll be all hands on deck on Saturday setting up for the lunch time party, then it's party time! Then we're heading out to catch up with a few friends Saturday night, then it's Mum's birthday on Sunday (Happy Birthday Mum!!!) which we will be celebrating over brekky, then it's a catch up with my Mum-in-law, then off to the airport for a 2:30pm flight.
Phew. I'm exhausted. BUT EXCITED!!!! I love coming home for wee visits. It's so nice to be around familiar faces and streets and weather. And my Nanny always gets particularly excited to see us, exclaiming "where is she" as soon as our car drives in. I always feel like a bit of a celebrity on these types of visits. Even though it's not ALL about us, everyone wants to see us and it makes me feel super-spesh.
I've just done a proof-read of this post, and realise that I've referred to both Brisbane and Melbourne as "home". I guess it's nice to know that Brisbane will always be my home town, but that I feel happy and comfortable enough to call Melbourne home for the time being.
It's going to be GREAT!!
