I salute thee my ex-neighbours.

Our old neighbours dropped by today. They live in Melbourne now and are in Sydney for a holiday. What a good time we had. & how not to have a good time when you’re in the company of an Englishman and his Scottish wife. We considered going out but abandoned the idea for some good old-fashioned staying at home and getting drunk instead.  Yes, we got some dips, some smoked trout, some crackers and some cheese, but we really settled into the wine. Yes, I’m drunk as  I type this. & we managed this with 3 kids out on the prowl as well. I don’t do this enough. I might regret it tomorrow. But for now, it’s a good thing. I so wish that they still lived here, across the hall. Isn’t it great to have neighbours that you really get on with. That you vibe with. That you can talk about so many things with. That you can call family. When you are an international nomad, to find a good neighbour is a special treat. But to be drunk, after a special day together…it’s just sweet.
