A surprise visit planned for Edna, Kris's Mum, on her 80th Birthday was thwarted by her unexpected illness. The visit was underway when we were informed that Edna had been taken to Hospital. Plans are made to be revised so we raced off to Albany. January was spent providing support to Edna and Colin during Edna's convalescence and she seems to be recovering very well.

Brother Vern's partner, Jo, also suffered a severe illness of unknown origin which put her in Intensive Care in Royal Perth Hospital for almost 3 months. Again, thankfully, Jo is now in Shenton Park Rehabilitation Centre in Perth and is making huge steps towards her recovery. Go Jo!!!

It was great to catch up with both our families and meet our new grand daughter, Savannah.

We flew back to Singapore on the 26th of January..Australia Day, to join Chris and Daun on the new "More Magic" for the final leg of the delivery from Hong Kong to Rebak Marina in Langkawi.
