Proud family time in Melbourne and country Victoria

We spent a few days in the lovely city of Melbourne, catching up with some exhibitions and friends.

The biggest reason for the visit, though, was a very important graduation: our son and daughter in law have completed their studies and graduated on the same night, from the same university my husband and I graduated from nearly 4 decades ago!!!

It was a wonderful celebration.

What a fantastic achievement -not only did they finish their studies, they had 3 wonderful children and held down some challenging work situations at the same time.

Of course we had to go up to the country town where they live, for a quick visit with these same 3 grandchildren -now 6, 4 and 1.5 years old. This drawing is of me! I assure you the eyes are 'sort of green" and the hair is 'sort of grey and white". LOL

The exhibition on at the Immigration Museum on the topic of love, was moving.

The National Gallery of Victoria has a splendid exhibition on at the moment -frocks from designers over more than 100 years! On display among their usual paintings and sculpures, these designer gowns from fashion houses of significance, were truly wonderful.

We loved the whole thing but it wasn't long enough with our family or with our favourite city either.

It is always good to be home.

Now to re-adjust to the 3 hour time difference!

Congratulations to your son and daughter in law.
It's not easy to study for a degree while working and raising kids.
