|I arrived in Auckland shortly after 6am and was at the house before nine. The girls have all grown so much, especially little Emma who has also "grown up". At two and a half, she is definitely not a baby any more. Adrian is not here. He started a new job in Melbourne a couple of weeks ago, so unfortunately, I won't get to see him this year. Tanya and the girls will join him in Australia as soon as the house is sold. The annoying part is that I will actually be passing through Melbourne in as few days, but by the time we knew about the job, it was too late to change the ticket to allow a stop-over.
