Teddy Biscuit Please

So you know, from the posts about Twisty’s birthday and Christmas that we’ve had a visitor with us for a little while. Shelly stayed with us for 3 weeks over the Christmas and New Year period and we had lots of fun teaching her a little bit about the Australian way of life. I think she was pleasantly surprised about what she found here. In fact, you could even say she was a ‘bit excited’ to discover that it had more to offer than she first thought.  She’d mentioned before that she likes to visit countries with different languages and cultures and so Australia wasn’t on her list of “Places to visit”. The funny thing is, as I think she discovered, Australia does have a very different culture to the UK. It has many languages and faces. Just because the colonialist populated it all those years ago doesn’t mean it doesn’t feel completely different to England 🙂 It has some ‘home’ comforts I guess, but it isn’t the UK either – Especially not during the summer months!

We visited all of the usual suspect: Cleland Wildlife Park, Botanical Gardens, The city, McLaren Vale, The Central Markets, loads of Coffee Shops and the beaches. She spent a few days over in Sydney experiencing the culture of the Opera, the rocks, the shopping and the quay before heading off to the Blue Mountains for the day. Whilst she was here she experienced the 43 degree days we suffered during the bushfires as well as the cool breeze and rain that appeared shortly afterwards. Most importantly though, she got to spend some well-earned time with her family. Getting to know Twisty and I guess us (in our newish role as Mum and Dad) in a different environment (Australia). I think she went home refreshed, recharged and raring to go! It’s always great to have a house guest. Even better when it’s family that you haven’t seen for a long time 🙂
