Happy New Year

Happy New Year.

I am so glad that 2015 has finished. Not my best time. Struggled with some of my university studies. Air conditioning woes. Travel disasters. Death in the family. My husband had emergency surgery which has not healed well. Blah, blah, blah. Aaargh! Glad it is over. A new beginning.

2016 is already off to a good start.
Ann meets a silent hero
at the Military Museum.
My younger sister is visiting us for a month. She previously visited me in 1979. Ann is an aged care worker specialising in community work. In her leisure time she is an off-road rally driver.

For the first two weeks we did nothing but talk. That was exhausting.
Christmas was fun. The weather was ghastly but it was wonderful to spend the day with family at our place this time. Ann is much more calm and composed about these events than I am. (Panic merchant) We have consumed so many calories I swear we could power a steam engine. Chocolates. Cakes. Mince pies. Cream. Alcohol. Puddings. Shortbread. Cheeses.

Now we are doing things and enjoying life.
Yesterday we went to the Military Museum at East Point. Last night we strolled down to the Waterfront for a spectacular fireworks show. Today it was a drive down to Adelaide River to visit the War Cemetery.

Now I am looking forward to having Ann's help as I tackle the quilt kit she gave me for Christmas. Thank goodness she is here. It looks hard. (Yes, I know, try baby steps.)
