Christmas lunch and Parsons beach

A lovely lunch with Tabby and her family, Parsons beach a day or so ago. I am very tired but it has been a lovely day so far.

Along the coast, close to home.

The last few days seem to have been a blurr. Johns birthday, 83 how have we got so old! A doctors appointment for both of us, not happy about mine, more changes to my diabetic medication and a nasty scheduled to be cut off. Sometimes I think I would like to stop all medication. We had a lovely lunch with friend R. Very few Christmas cards, probably because we want from the box umber to the street address, we did etll people but did we tell those who send cards? I am afraid I don't send cards but I do make them for friends a d family, I give them. Yesterday afternoon we want for a drive and I took these photos. The town is filling up as covid is making people stay closer to home. Holiday houses at the bay are opening up earlier and the boat ramps are full. I have made the 5th Xmas cake, and 4 trays of biscuits. Decided to make a couple more angels. The weather has been lovely, cool and mild with cloudy skies

Hot and muggy day

We walked this morning on the beach and I spent a lot of the time hand sewing. Then this afternoon we drove out to the Kings Beach car park, the crop next to it has just been reaped, interesting clouds. Love taking photos.

Busy day

Another cake made, foot the optional nuts but it looks ok, ours I think. Then on to making Christmas cards. I had some blank ones and as I have quite a bit of painted paper left over from my online class with Lorna Crane I made a simple tree template and had fun. Love how it turned out. A walk this morning and now I feel quite tired. Still no decorations up.perhaps tomorrow.

Making cakes and wild seas.

We have had a couple of wild days. Yesterday close to home and today at Pt elliot. This is my 2nd Christmas cake, 3 more to go, or maybe 4, not sure. Some parcels sent off today as well. I am not as organised as I would like to be.I do find it all rather tiring and my back is still not liking me. Lovely cool weather at the moment but getting nto I the high to mid 30s by the end of the week. Not nice.

Out for an airing

I have had a dreadful back ache for the last 2 days and haven't felt up to walking. I have made the first Christmas cake, fruit soaked over night in brandy, the house smelt delicious this morning. I am slowly hand sewing more angels, nearly finished. I decided to make them in bright fabrics this year, it reallty has been such a miserable year. We all need a bit of cheering up. Such a windy year too, we get a little bit of rain and then it blows all the moisture away. John took me out to look at the sea and now as it is Sunda he is chopping stuff for tonight's pasta. I am lucky.
