almost done....

well as 2012 comes to a close...
it's time to wish everyone a


I don't usually do resolutions as they are too easily forgotten, 
said in the heat of the moment, 
or just too hard to make true....
so this is all you get...

I hope that 2013 brings you what you wish for...

mine is just, 
good health, 
and maybe a little wealth to help with those darn bills!

it's over....

well Christmas is done and dusted for another year!
this year was a quiet one on Christmas day, 
just 5 of us for lunch, 
roast turkey, potatoes with all the trimmings

this weekend sees the next family gathering, HERE...oh my!
well I think I'm organised, 
turkey, leg of lamb, 2 beef roasts, and ham.
Desserts are being done by one of the others, 
and nibblies by someone else. 
Just hope the weather stays nice as it will out on the back verandah where I can set up the long tables as there will be a few of us. 

hope that  you all had a wonderful time, 
and it will be the next big event before we know it...
what happened to 2012?
