A train ride to Birregurra

I started the trip to Birregurra from Southern Cross Station, by working out how to get to the city without having to find a car park. After realising that the trains from Nth Melbourne go through the Loop before getting to Southern Cross (usually one stop) I remembered Celia had used a bus over the west gate bridge last week.  So I looked it up and found I could get one at 9:06 to get to Southern Cross by 9:25, to meet the others at 945.   As I headed down to Altona Gate bus stop (5-6 min walk) I spotted a man at the stop Celia had seen on the On-ramp from Millers Rd ( 2 mins walk from home) He was there because his bike had a flat tire and he was waiting for his wife to come and get him!!

The removalist was coming at 1230 and our good friend Shirley arrived at 11am to collect Spencer for the day. We then packed kitchen items in the car and some last minute things while Celia channeled her Gray Scrubber (Mervin Peake character) and cleaned as we emptied each area.

Danny arrived with his truck and assistant Ryan each armed with litre water bottles that the refilled more than 10 times! They did a great job and we were on schedule less the 30+pot plants to move when we got the call that Settlement was through and we could collect the keys at Altona Meadows about 10 minutes past the new place which was about 10 minutes away. Then the thrill l…
