My brother had returned to work in P/NG so there was just the three of us at home.
|Mum worked hard at establishing a garden.|
|Dad added a carport to the garage, where we had lived for 5 years.|
|The Royal National Park, Sydney.|
|Parliament House, Canberra.|
|Swimming pool, Canberra.|
But, you know me, I was more interested in finding the swimming pool. I do remember, though , that it was freezing cold.
