Youngest son has come home to live for awhile plus his 3 little ones come and stay here a couple of times a week 2 nights at a time, that makes 4 extra in the house - but it's good fun for us even though much more work is involved it keeps us busy.
Whilst we were away two of my Aunties passed over to the other side, one was nearly 99 the other was 82, both my late mother's sisters mum being in the middle.
Then two other friends died whilst we were away.
Yesterday being Sunday we went to Hobart for the day and had High Tea at Claremont House at Claremont just before you get to the city of Hobart. Both Aunties had private funerals.
So now all my Aunties and Uncles have departed this world - I'm the next generation but we won't go into that! :)

Another thing that happened and of course not as bad as the above was one of my external Hard Drives decided not to work thus loosing everything, today good news, plugged it back in and all this working so I'm doing a backup! Always pays to just incase.
Back to holiday.
On June 29, 2017 we headed to Wodonga for 2 nights. Still cold we had to buy another portable heater as the one we had went bung! The new one wasn't real good either and has since been returned and money refunded.
Bought another blanket as forget to bring the one from home which was the only thing we had forgotten to take.
Wodonga, Victoria itself is not far from the NSW (New South Wales border) with the city of Albury being a twin city in NSW. Wodonga has about 38, 600 people and Albury about 90,000 people.
Whilst in Wodonga we went to Huons lookout with it's rather pleasant views of Soldiers quarters and a small area of Hume Lake.
'Major secondary industries based in Wodonga include a logistics distributions hub (LOGIC), a large cattle market, a pet food factory (Mars Corporation), a can factory (Visy), a cardboard box factory (Visy Board), a hydraulic hose manufacturer, an abattoir, and a foundry Bradken Limited as well as a variety of other, smaller enterprises. It also serves as a central point for the delivery of government services to the surrounding region.
Australian Army logistics base and a training centre for Army technical apprentices, the Army Logistic Training Centre, which is based at Latchford Barracks and Gaza Ridge Barracks. It is also the home of a campus of La Trobe University and Wodonga Institute of TAFE.'
