Flag of Malta  ,
Friday, August 10, 2007

have arrived in malta was and excitting and emotional reuniton. zia marie and zio johnny were there to great us as well as stephanie, analeese, janice, anthea and josset. went first to see jesmond at his office with stephanie and then to zia maries place were we meet tessie and rodney. stayed there for most of the day went on a little walk as i think dave needed to get a bit of air. they though he was a nice boy but a bit quiet. they got into him a bit for us not being married and he had his usual responce... soon. also meet antheas husband kevin who is realy nice and we went out with them a few times during our stay. went to jesmond and marvics place for dinner which was beautiful and meet some of their friends that also own boats so most of the conversations were about boats as dave informed them that he was a boat builder (borring for me but oh well) they also spoke really good english so that was good.
11th august -
had a day seeing a few of the sights with zio johnny and walked and walked most of the time we didnt know where we were going. went to valletta and looked around i got a pair of thongs but they did have daves size in shoes he was deeply disappointed they only catered for small feet i think. then had rav. at the usual pasta  place dave loved them and had  a hudge plate which was good as i want him to put on a bit of weight while we are away. also had a few parsitsies (pritty sure i spent that wrong) and he though that is was the best riccota he tasted their riccota is more cheesy i think any way then went to selima and saw the boat and walked for what felt miles zio johnny is so fit for a man that is 71. after that went to the 1 pound shop were he bought zia marie some plates, cups and a tea pot which latter she felt like throwing over his head cause she already had lots which made us all laugh and dave laugh at her laugh. dave thinks that she is a really funny woman and her laugh even funnier. latter that night went out for dinner with anthea, kevin, arron and arrons girlfrient (forgot her name) which was fabulous. of course they would not let us pay even though we tried. we also went to a wine bar where dave ordered an australian wine at 18 maltese pound (about 80 aussie) and would not let us pay i was very embarased. got home at about 2am zio johnny was still up and tried to wake zia marie when we got home to let her know we were back which we tired to stop him. overall and excellent night which we will definately repay when they come to australia in a couple of years. kevin is really into boats and fishing so him and dave were talking all night which i really liked and we said that we will take them to rotto when they come.
12th august-
spent the day on jesmonds boat which was great and relaxing. went to a beautiful bay which was mostly calm once we were able to secure the anchor after a few attempts dave was helping and looked like he was in his element.  marvic kept going on about us not being married and how sea sick she was which i tried not to think about as the water at times was a bit rough but i was going to give into being sick or feeling sick. dave was proud. got home late - 9pmish had a snooze on the boat got a bit burnt but will soon be brown. dave also got a bit burned(he just goes white again though not so lucky)
13th august. -
bit of a lazy day last day in malta flying out tomorrow. spent the day sight seeing with marvic who i think is a danger on the roads almost got killed a few times went and saw the bomb at mosca church and then the view at mdina and had a cold drink as it was really hot. marvic spilt mine all over the place reaching for the bill and half over dave and i (well dave more) our feet were grose and sticky for the rest of the day. took a few picks which i will try and send to you all soon. had dinner at antheas and kevins with her family and zia and zio there too. there place is really beautiful they have a hudge bathroom and a small bathroom in their room too. although no real out door area the inside probably bigger than dave and mine with lots of wooden furniture. leaving tomorrow and must come again so that dave can to the blue grotto or and the rest. promised them by then we should be married and they reckon with a kid not to sure about the kid bit but hopefully back in five years. zia marie reckons she want be around but i know she will be. they are great loving people and dave really enjoyed himself which was  a real boost.
