Julie and Ian Dollery, some of my closest friends who for some reason seem happy to feed me two, three or more times a week.  I’m not sure it’s because I fulfil the role of ladies companion for Julie, making her tea while she works from home, or keeping her company on lunches out at swanky restaurants (it’s such a hard life some weeks!) or whether because I provide an excuse for Ian to make dessert, discuss outrageous political theories and watch animated movies with 🙂

All I know is these two have fast become two of my best friends! And this year, in a few weeks, they are taking me on a one-week all-expenses-paid trip to Phuket in Thailand!

Yep – an all expenses paid overseas holiday. I’ve never left Australia so this will be an exciting time. Also I’m feeling quite nervous about being well enough for the Dollery’s to get their monies worth ( Julie has informed me that I’m being quite silly).

This is the resort we will be staying at:  Mandarava Resort and Spa Karon Beach
