Happy 2014 to all my friends and family xxx
We have had a wonderful time in Canberra staying at my brother-in-laws house. We parked out the front, so we were able to use the house and all it’s wonderful facilities (things you miss while travelling including electricity, hot water, wifi etc). Thanks Victor for having us for nearly two weeks, we really appreciate your hospitality!
It was fantastic to catch up with my niece Rachel and my sister Deb, who came for just over a week (she lives in Auckland). We had a crazy Christmas Eve, with a little bit too much wine (by me) and lots of dancing to 80’s music! Christmas day was lots of fun (even with a hang-over) and Deb cooked up lots of great dishes.
Even though we had lots of R&R time, we also had fun at Questacon…
and The Mint…Rory and Jakayla also had an awesome time playing with Nick’s old lego, they played at least a couple of hours per day…
Wayne and Victor were very busy for a few days building a pergola over the back courtyard. Well done boys with all your hard work!
New Years Eve was spent at Lake Burley Griffin along the foreshore waiting for the firecrackers at 9pm. It was freezing!!!! I had pre-cooked some chicken and potato salad and we huddled under blankets waiting for the crackers to light up the night sky.
All up we stayed for 12 sleeps and had a wonderful time, thanks everyone!!!
Next stop is Tumut and the Snowy Mountains.
