Packing it all in

Luna Park

The Warrens got back into Sydney on Wednesday afternoon and managed to pack in a number of activities in their last few days before departing. Anna took a couple of days off work to join them on Thursday & Friday.

Then, on Saturday, I joined the merriment for a quick whiz around the harbour in a jet boat before dropping everybody off at the airport. It was really nice to catch up with their news, and pass on our best wishes to everyone in Chesterfield.

Rain, rain go away?

Desert Rain

Predictably enough, and after some near-record temperatures on Saturday, the weather took a sharp downturn for Rachel, Graham and Emily's arrival. However, despite the average weather, they did very well to get out and about on Monday and keep themselves awake until around 10pm that night - in an effort to adjust timezones as quickly as possible.

Meanwhile, one of Anna's work colleagues, David, was attending the (Caesarean) birth of his second child at the same hospital that we're due to attend in December. They were having a boy this time around, having had a girl as their first child - hmm, coincidence. It wasn't until later in the week that we discovered that they also had the same obstetrician, Dr Brieger, that we have - no coincidence that it was also a Monday after all! Apparently everything went smoothly, so we hope for the same good luck in a couple of months time.

Aussie Wave

Rachel and Graham

Anna and I visited the obstetrician for the latest check-up yesterday and, as usual, I'm happy to report that everything is progressing well - despite the doctor making some passing remarks that Anna was slightly bigger than he expected.

With the weather heating up, I've also started to notice the appearance of the traditional Aussie Wave when I'm walking to and from the ferry. The temperature has been hovering around the mid thirties for some of the week, and that's guaranteed to spur on the local flies!

Finally, Rachel and Graham (pictured above) are due to be flying into Sydney next week - so hopefully the weather, both here and in Perth, will be good for them!

Catching Up

Anna and Rhonda

A quick round-up of last weekend:

This week has been a pretty quiet one in terms of news here, as Anna & I have been trying to get as much sleep as possible before the new arrival. Despite her best efforts, as Anna gets bigger, it is also becoming increasingly difficult for her not to be disturbed by movements during the night.
