Trial Separation?

Sunday 6th September 2015

For those who know, it came as no surprise, but maybe for those who didn't it will probably be a bit surprising but I can now tell you that Diane has left me, on the boat, and returned to Australia via Los Angeles.

Of course she will be coming back in a couple of months we aren't splitting up or anything like that, but she has gone home to see her parents who are having a not so great year

The timing of the trip was to be a secret to surprise our daughter, Sam, for her 30th birthday, but it appears that there has been some leakage of "state" secrets and a full-scale enquiry will take place with those responsible being dealt with quite severely - there will be feather-dusters and tickling involved.

She split the trip up by stopping in LA for a couple of days to see Mitch and Sara. This will now be the future travelling arrangements.

From all reports that I have had they all had a good time and there was another house guest there - Emily Flanigan - whom we know from Mitch's junior tennis days.
we think that they are just a lovely couple

The sign in the background says it all

Diane met up with Sara's brothers - Matt and Luke - and went out to a ball-game as she saw the LA Dodgers take on the San Francisco Giants.
So now there will be a Dodgers hat to go with the Yankees hat
But for now she is safely at home in Melbourne and will be flying to Queensland very soon.
Like I said yesterday - the wacky gene has defintiely been passed on

The selfie-queen is at it again

lucky Mum made it home - at least she will be there to help with the cleaning

In the meantime, I have renewed my single-handing skills and moved from Hemel Hempstead down to Hunton Bridge where I shall spend a few days.
