Now honeymooning in Fiji and loving it ....


Elliott's beautiful new baby Jonah and his mum Andrea couldn't fly over from Perth for the wedding so Elliott just came for a quick 2 night visit and then flew back to be with them !  

Family is everything .... and it was wonderful to be able to celebrate together !!

New car for me this week ... time to swap the orange Subaru for a hyper blue .... very bright and lovely to drive ....
