In 1963, Dad was promoted to be boss of everything in Asia north of the Tweed River (or so it seemed to us) and the family moved to Aspley in Brisbane. Number 50 Binowee Street. This was the beginning of a new adventure for the whole family. And a good one. I’m sure Mum had her reservations about moving so far away from friends and family, but she embraced it with enthusiasm, and we followed her lead.
I think it is pretty clear that this adventurous spirit also continues to cascade down through the generations from both Dad and Mum.
