It was my friend Deb's 60th birthday and a surprise lunch was held for her at Lane Winery in the Adelaide hills. It was a perfect spring day with the temperature reaching 27C (81F) I believe. The hills are still all green from the winter rain and for the first time since I arrived back in Australia I felt lucky to be here. I realised I missed the grey/green of the gum trees and the sounds of Aussie birds. Its like the countryside said "welcome back" and I smiled a big deep smile.
