So, about the pudding... I won't be bothered next year, and will go to the CWA. I was told it tasted fine, just not the best they had eaten. I will give anything a try once....(for the record, I am sure it was not the recipe)
Since then, we have done some stuff.
Home alone, the Tassie Rea family just hung around. We had a really relaxing day, hot Christmas lunch and in the afternoon headed down to the oval and hung out with some of the neighbours... French cricket and car racing.
While we were down there, I was sitting,talking to a friend, when another lady and her dog came over for a chat... a few minutes into the conversation my friend startled to cackle with laughter... the dog that had accompanied this lady had done a wee on my bike. I am not a dog lover and I have my reasons... The list of reasons just seems to keep growing.
The lovely McGowan family joined us for breakfast. It is always good to spend time with fellow Queenslanders to share stories about places, people and situations that are familiar.
Sunday afternoon we headed to Lake Echo in the central highlands, to camp with the Watson family. Some of the weather highlights were, snow, sun, hail and wind. The fun stuff was kayaking, 4WDing, fishing, walking and bathing in the lake. The camping spot was great and we had wonderful company. I was able to get to know the rest of Greta's family around the camp fire sharing stories and laughs.
Next stop was Eagle Hawk Neck with Dave and Lynn. Lucky enough to have perfect weather, sunny each day and stars that just lit up the sky of an evening. Adam and the kids did the sand dunes and had an interesting boating experience. I just played on the flying fox and stayed up late, talking fishing and nursing. We love staying at the block... the company is great, the view is amazing and as an added bonus, hot shower, kitchen and toilet.
