New Year

sunny 30 °C

Am absolutely "pooped" as we have been taking Jack to work in Brissie. Holiday times pay well for Jack and I wanted to take some "stuff" home as I have rented out my apartment for a year. John and I are travelling a lot this year so when the offer came we grabbed it. Hope our health holds out now to enjoy it .

The days up here have been just lovely - a bit windy - but you have to take the good with the bad eh?

How lucky can you be? The weather is still holding - fine and sunny - just awesome Queensland sunshine.
Jack had a kite - action lesson and for that I ran him up to the Rotary Park near Cottontree. He went out near the estuary of the Maroochy River. I went and shopped about and had a coffee while I waited.

Had another trip to Brissie with another "load " and celebrated New Year's Eve at the dance at the Grange Bowls Club with Kerry and Jan Sonter.
Returned again on New Years Day but called in for a BBQ at Jo's place at Maleny. Jo and June put the lunch on to celebrate Lisa's birthday and a pleasant afternoon was had by all.

We were in John's old work truck as my new tenants wanted the third bedroom devoid of furniture so they can use it as an office hence it was a busy evening and a loaded truck and we returned to Brissie at 8.15pm to avoid any traffic snarls. Then it was up again today and we continued to bokarina and called on old friends - Marie and Johnny Vlieg and Shirley Gibson. had a pleasant and then while John went shopping at Stockland I washed and dried mats etc. and swept and mopped and vacuumed out the apartment ready to hand over the keys.

We are now ready for a relaxing time to get over the wild ride we've had over the so called "break"
Never mind "Variety is the spice of Life"
