Married to Tony mother to 2 children Lucas 23, Gemma 26 & her boyfriend Sean. Carer for 2 crazy Jack Russells. I'm dyslexic so excuse any mistakes. The Stitching Room is where I spend my time playing with Clarice (my camera) and Bernie (my sewing machine). Come on in and see what I'm up to.

Happy New Year.
Both children are away....Gemma and Sean have gone to Melbourne to a dance concert and Lucas and a group of his friends have rented a holiday house at Goolwa...this is a scary thought...... I got a message from him this morning saying "I'm still alive" which is a good thing.

Tony and I went to Glenelg.


Mind you I didn't go on the beach it was far too windy.


We had a very nice lunch at The Belfast on Mosley square, from our table
I took these happy snaps.




By the time we had finished our lunch this cute little boy was soaking wet........ but boy did he have fun.




Unfortunately I didn't have Mel with me think what fun he could have had with these fellows.

I'm surprised you didn't go swimming yourself! It looks very inviting - but personally I wont go in water unless it's over 35C - and preferably if it's been over 35C for a few days!
Happy New Year Leanne - hope to see you around Hetties!!

What fun to see the beach photos of your warm weather.
We are enjoying winter here in the northern US.
We have cold weather and snow but I have to say I am enjoying it!
Happy Warm New Year to you all.

Looks like a lot of fun. I get so much pleasure in watching children play in the water - oh, to have that kind of carefree joy again.
