Last weekend we made a scheduled visit to the Gold Coast to visit Mel’s grandfather. It had been over a year since Mel had last visited, and with a new bub on the way it wasn’t clear when we’d get up there again, so it seemed like a good time to call in.
It was great to get away for a few days, enjoy the warm weather and go for a daily swim in the surf, but it was especially nice to be able to spend some quality time with Mel’s pop as a family. He clearly enjoyed the prospect of becoming a great-grandfather, and the visit has stimulated ideas of him relocating, to be closer to us all.
I do hope we can bring him down.
