Marnie, Phil and Denver gave me a gift voucher for The Black Hen for Christmas.  Bought a wooden ampersand with it...
(Bet you didn't know that was what this symbol was called!)


Books from the library on the go...

(Beautiful houses in the wood book!)


Bought this coffee/cappuccino maker.  Now I have to work out how to use it...

(Made my first cup this morning...delish!)


Marnie and Denver have moved to Melbourne for a couple of years, so I have been busy de-cluttering and re-arranging furniture...

(Still a way to go...but getting there...)


Is for everything else...

Christmas Day I helped out (as I did the previous year) at the charity lunch held here in Deloraine.  Cooking, serving, washing dishes... It was fun, working with a nice bunch of people.  Hope to do it again next Christmas.

New Year was quiet...the way I like it :)

Keeping busy walking, weeding, mowing lawns, reading, getting back on track with blog entries...  Enjoying the solitude :))

Hope 2015 is a good one for you!!
