Wonderful return to Euroa
YOU can take the girl out of the country but you can’t take the country out of the girl (or should I say the older lady).
On Thursday, October 19 I rose early and caught the V/Line train to Euroa. I was waited on like a Queen. Couldn’t find any fault with anything. Even my breakfast was brought to me. I had come a day early as I was attending the funeral of a beautiful 96 year old lady.
I shouldn’t say funeral as it was a joyful celebration of a long life well lived.
There were many happy reunions at the Flour Mill and Janet surpassed herself with her usual beautiful food.
When I arrived at Euroa, my friend Leanne was waiting to take me wherever. As usual Euroa was at ‘her best’. Gardens full of roses and every flower imaginable. Progress along the street was very slow. Lots of hugs and kisses (sore ribs but a happy heart).
I should have left years ago and had lots of return trips. We left my baggage at the Jolly Swagman. What a lovely place to stay. When I come back for my holidays I have a home like place to stay. They even have a beautiful old dog. After my family, dos, gardening and friends are my life. There was so much to see. New shops, new chemist, Lorraine’s lovely gift shop and many many more things.
After Leanne left to help at the show grounds, Lyn took charge of me.
In the evening, dinner was at the Euroa Hotel.
Great food and my friend Neville from the post office was there.
I will have to come back and stay a few days at the Jolly Swagman for a holiday in the autumn. I don’t think that will be long enough. Also the Euroa Show next year. I haven’t been there since Kerrie and Robyn grew up.
After helping with the animal nursery and getting everything there, I needed a break. Some break. Robyn is now 52 and Kerrie is 48. Both with grown up kids except for beautiful William Yander Ryan, who won’t answer to anything other than Billy.
Friends who I didn’t get to see, I’ll catch up next time when I come on holidays.
