I'm off to Melbourne with Eliza this weekend to celebrate my birthday (no, I'm not saying how many times around the sun). She has been there for two weeks for a conference so she should know all the good places to go by now. I've booked a 'Laneway Tour' for Saturday morning because Melbourne's gems, unlike 'out-there' Sydney, are hidden away for those in the know. I'm not much of a shopper, but I'll be looking at art, enjoying the window displays and loving the cafes and restaurants. Baggage handlers - please don't call one of your sudden strikes!
