Here we are ready to leave in an hour for the train. We are taking a leisurely train trip to Sydney which will get us in about midday to central. Then we catch another train to the airport only a 20 minute ride. We have to be at the airport 3 hours before an international flight!!!!!


Anyway, everyone is in Bali and having a ball. Trev had a work commitment he just couldn't get out of, so we leave this afternoon and get in about 9.00pm Bali time.
We, Mum, Trev and I are all very excited about this wedding and it's about time!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the third time that we've tried to get it done! Third time lucky so they say.

I'm not sure how much time I'll get, but I'll try to pop in during the next week just to check on you all. Happy birthday to anyone having a birthday during the coming week.

Can't wait to show you the pictures and as soon as we have some I'll share them with you all.

Thank you to all my dear friends who sent congratulatory messages, it means the world to me.
I'm putting up a picture of where we are staying, it's called the Nusa Dua Hotel and Spa Resort. It's gorgeous and all of our family are staying there.
Our best friends who own the winery up in the Hunter Valley are arriving tomorrow. John is bringing his super duper camera and will take lots of pictures, he likes natural looking ones, not staged!

The wedding is at 4.00pm on Friday 5th May, so all of you have a drink of something bubbly if you can and think of us sweltering in the low to mid 30's Celsius,
which is 90+F to you guys overseas in the USA and the humidity is in the 90% - aaaggghhh! I think I'll be swimming all the time and spending time at the bar in the pool.

Of course I'll have to go do some fabric shopping, won't I? Trev has organised the money side of things and I just have to ask for it. Aren't I the lucky one?
Love to you all, wish us luck, love Chris

Have a lovely time. Congratulations to the happy couple. That pool looks a little like a squashed map of Tasmania. Enjoy yourself swimming in it. Hugs Shirley

I'm so happy for all of you! I hope you don't have to go do "wedding" work when you get there and can enjoy this delicious looking place. BTW, do you Aussies do something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue? Just curious. Ta and much love!

Yes we do. I wonder what the bride will have.

Yes Jerrilyn we do. Amy is wearing my blue garter that my grandmother (my Mum's Mum) made for me at my wedding 45 years ago. The garter is old and blue, the gown is new but I'm not sure what she is borrowing. ❤️ Chris
