I have just returned from 3 days up the north coast of NSW to Emerald Beach. Catching up with my sister and her family. We went for a walk into the National Park.  
Where we came across a family group of kangaroos


Christmas Day.
A lovely sunny day after weeks of rain.

A walk along the Parramatta River after lunch.

The Entrance Farmers Market


The Entrance Farmers Market this morning, fine and sunny, crowded, lots of stalls. Bought my home-made soap, vegetables and home-made sausage rolls which I wished I had bought more of and put in the freezer.


Looking towards The Entrance Bridge

Today my son, daughter, son in law and grand-daughter took me out to lunch
at Crown Plaza, Terrigal Beach for my birthday.
The weather was great – warm and sunny with just a hint of a breeze.
A lovely lunch accompanied by live music.

I went into The Entrance today to see the huge display of Chromefest cars and on the way home I dropped into the shops for milk and came out with a new ‘do. My hair has grown so much lately, well passed my shoulders. I decided I needed a change, now it is short and curly, the hairdresser had complimented me on how brave I was to have so much taken off but it feels better now.

And also, hang onto your hats, I bought a new cossie (Swimmers). Yay. Grandma-style!!! Yikes.

I went into The Entrance today to see the
huge display of Chromefest2011 cars and activities.


The Rock’nRollers were enjoying the music

Loved the colours of these two cars.

I got stuck into the garden after work on Thursday, mowing, clipping and pruning, two hours later called it a day, on Friday dragged myself off to work and spent the weekend recovering. lol

Spring has sprung.

I just spent the weekend catching up with my sisters at my brother’s place, it was the first time we had all gotten together since my brother was diagnosed with terminal cancer. It was great seeing everyone again, my brother enjoyed his weekends catching up.
We went to Dooley’s club at Lidcombe for dinner Friday night. Barramundi and chips. Yum. and Saturday lunch was spent at the Tennis Club on Chisholm -Flounder and chips, this time.
