Beach Day

 Finally, this crazy year is almost over. We have been very fortunate here as we have been well and there haven't been too many cases of the virus in Australia. So sad for so many other countries who have been so affected by it all. We just hope that 2021 is a bit better! So let's finish this year with some photos of our trip to the beach last Sunday. It was the perfect day and even the water was warm. We live 2 hours or so from the sea so it was a big day but well worth it. The kids had a wonderful time!

Happy New year everyone.

 Can't believe that Christmas is over. After all the preparation, it flew by quickly. We had a happy time and too much food. Mind you it has been fun eating the leftovers! Here are some pictures. On Christmas eve we had afternoon tea together and then a swim and a sausage and salad dinner. 

We usually take some family photos on Christmas day.

The gifts were a big hit!

We enjoyed a yummy lunch and then watched a movie. Too chilly for a swim on Christmas day here.

 I had best go and do a bit more cooking!!! Just thought I would share some of my decorations with you.

I have far too many decorations but it is always fun to see them up once more and of course, to make more!!!

More celebrations

 Last Thursday, it was lovely to catch up with my study group to enjoy a delicious lunch together. There is so much delicious food when everyone brings dishes to share. Here we are with the desserts.

On Sunday evening we were able to have carols in the park and the little people came too.

On Saturday night, the night stitching girls headed out to dinner and had a delicious meal. We also had a gift swap which was lovely. Here are some of the gifts. I should have taken some photos of us!!
