Aussie Christmas

Marion, lucky you, being somewhere where it was lovely enough weather to go out in the boat for the day!  Our Christmas Day was so hot that G couldn't even heat up the gas BBQ because of the total fire ban, so ate his prawns on Boxing Day instead, cooked in the frypan on the stove.

Two of our sons and partners are overseas right now. Shannon is settled into 'gatehouse' accommodation close by the uni where he has a post-grad science position; his wife flew over on Christmas Eve to spend 3 weeks with him. DS#1 and his gf flew to San Francisco, also on Christmas Eve, to spend 4 weeks with her brother. DS#2 was able to fly the 1500 home from the mine on the NT/Qld border, also on Christmas Eve, and came straight to our place with his family for our Christmas meal.  

I am still suffering post-shingles with pain and very annoying tingles - 4 months is long enough, thank you so much! Graham has been having problems with his hip for a few months and is actually looking forward to 8th January, when he is booked in for a hip replacement.  Our house is tidy and liveable but there is a shed full of boxes which still need to be unpacked after our move. I am looking forward to being able to get back to quilting sometime in the not too distant future!

Wishing everyone all the very best for 2016,
Fran in Sth Aust.
