Warning* This is one of those ‘What I did on my holidays’ posts!
We spent time with the family, catching up with news and revisiting favourite places around Sydney and then did a trip to Darwin to catch the fabulous Ghan Expedition – a three night/four day train ride from The Top End right down to Adelaide in South Australia. Think Downton Abbey on wheels!
We followed that with a road trip along the coast from Melbourne to Jervis Bay, three hours south of Sydney where we met up with the family for a long weekend in a holiday house five minutes’ walk from a perfect, unspoilt beach then back to Sydney for more time with the troops and home via another stopover in Vancouver. (Hence the jet lag; we ended up going right round the world and that made the tiredness worse than when we’ve gone back the way we came!)
I plan to blog and tweet about it all in instalments but I’m still zonking out mid-evening but wide awake at three a.m. It’s because we crossed an awful lot of time zones, apparently! A lot of the time I feel as though I’m moving very slowly through treacle!
I did wake up though, when I had a nice surprise at home in the shape of a box of paperbacks of The House at Ladywell – out now just in time for Christmas! The ebook launch date is 14th November – tell your friends! Buy it here – http://amzn.to/2i7o2Z9
