Hello Eaton family, Can you believe I am sending this from the middle of the ocean on our lovely ship on waters that are now calm, but which last night were so very rough. Sorry I missed your phone call yesterday when we were in DJs with Jenny. She had been showing me how to use the mobile and when it rang I thought she was playing a trick to see how well we had absorbed the lesson - needless to say we failed once again!
Tonight we are going to the Captains cocktail party all dressed up in our finery and then we are going
to meet some folk we met last year - Norwegians. Al has already met them and he recognised them, but I am not sure I will. Tomorrow we are meeting Penel in Melbourne and escorting various children to various places before returning at 10.30 pm in time to leave for Hobart. It is indeed a hard life. Hope you were all able to pass the fitness tests at the doctors surgery on Friday and that all your other plans are coming together nicely.
Lots of love from those of us lucky enough to be all at sea, Mum and Allan
