I originally said next week because of the all these weather warnings and then I saw it's 38. Seriously Melbourne, you call that hot! (okay it is kind of hot).

So I'm in if you're still keen. I'm in Kew so between the two of us is Camberwell (I think I went to the Roasted Cafe Bar which was nice) or if you don't drive I could come down your way. Unfortunately us being two newbies we're going to find it difficult to suggest a place original.gif

eta i forgot to put a time. i prefer morning but can go anytime.

I think I need to learn how to subscribe to this thread or something because I never check to see if it has been updated.

I hope you all had good Christmas and New Year celebrations.

We went back to Perth for a month (about 2 weeks too long). We had a great time enjoying the beautiful weather so I'm finding it hard to adjust back into this cold. I took DS to the playground yesterday in this t-shirt and shorts with a hat and sunscreen and all the other kids were in jumpers  happy.gif  I've got to start checking the weather before we leave the house.

I've spent lots of time planning activities and projects to do this year - so that I stop watching TV during the day - and now I'm just excited to get on with it. Off to try to enrol in swimming lessons now.
