perth visit

i'm back at home after a week in perth.  i had a lovely time and saw lots of interesting places.  we went to the serpentine dam and fed the wild birds.  beautiful parrots that come down from the trees and feed from your hand.  lovely.  i went to the kalamunda hotel which is supposed to be haunted and the nearby farmer's market.  i went to the indiana tea rooms in cottesloe which was beautiful.  perth has some lovely architecture and i especially like freemantle. the cat cafe and kings park were worth a visit too. my friend leonie's daughter was in hospital whilst i was there and was quite ill.  she's seen another specialist now and hopefully she's on the road to recovery.  the flights to and from were good except that on the way to perth they weighed our handbags.  how rude.  of course we were both way over weight and had to shuffle our luggage around.  thank goodness leonie had 30kg to play with.  they did it at the boarding gate and in all of my years of travelling i've never had my handbag weighed before.  so, i've learned my lesson and will be more careful in future.  last year coming home from bali my handbag was so heavy i had trouble carrying it.  thank goodness they didn't weigh it then.  i will do better in future as i bought a new suitcase in perth.  it's got a 10 year guarantee.  lol.  i hope i don't need it but i thought it was a good idea as i've had two suitcases ruined on the last two trips and as i didn't have a receipt for them i didn't claim from the airline or my travel insurance.
