We have travelled across the Bay to Sorrento, then driven to Harmers Haven to visit Davids sister and family
we were on the smaller ferry going over so we stayed in the car, which was good as the Supervisor slept all the way!
We had fun on a new toy bought for a child but all the big kids had great fun, including me!

Serious conversation about the bike, Davids nephew and cousins partner, Chris.
Chris is a keen fisherman and he brought along this snapper he had caught in the Bay...it was over 5kg.
And this is the house Davids sister and brother in law are building, it will be a beautiful place once it is finished, we were told we would be camping, and we were, the shower and toilet were in the shed, the bathroom and kitchen are not yet in the house. It is a very light and airy place and from upstairs you can get a view of the water.
Yesterday we had a visit from Margaret and Barry, Tracee and Alan and I forgot to take a photo. We had a great lunch together, Marg delivered my 12 Days of Christmas swap and we were like two little girls on Christmas morning! I will show you my amazing presents next blog post.
Christmas has continued on here, Marg made me a beautiful apron
the Christmas side....I just love it, thank you very much Marg. This style of apron has a story, Marg made one 2 years ago for a Christmas swap, I opened the parcel and then along came Bad Santa who made us all swap, so I lost the apron!! All is good now I have my very own. Marg also gave me some almond nougat...yum!!
Tracee gave me this beautiful present, an Adele Basheer calender, which has positive sayings for each month, some note cards, a cute little bird who goes in the garden and a soap wrapped in felt..the felt shrinks as the soap is used, how clever is that, and it smells divine!! I will have lots of motivation and positive thoughts for the new year!!
and some sewing has been happening here, I am doing the gathering stitch around the circles, today I will have a break from stitching and do some gathering up, ironing and attaching to fabric ready to applique in place.
I am off to the library in Drysdale to return some books and renew the ones I have not read yet.
