So sorry that I haven't been visiting my blog friends much this week but I had more parties to attend and visitors to entertain. I hope I can get to your posts before Christmas.
But Joan (right) and I have been friends for many years. We met at Playgroup about 38 years ago.
Talking about Playgroup! The mothers from Springwood Playgroup back in the 70's still meet twice a year for dinner. We had a get together at the Carindale Hotel. It was very noisy but we still had a good time sharing photos and stories about our children and trips.
Joan and I fronted up again for more out to dinner fun. We are with Maureen and the three of us walk in the forest together every Saturday morning. We'll have to do more of that to work off all these dinners.
This week we have had visitors from Switzerland staying with us for a few days. We took them to Baan Thai, our favourite local Thai restaurant. We had never met these young people before but they were very nice house guests. Marc (right) is the son of a distant cousin of TOH's, they have the same surname and now that I look at this photo Marc reminds me of TOH when he was that age. The other two, Jurg and Sybill, are friends of Marc. We took them for sight seeing trips each day and they were very appreciative. Yesterday morning they hired a campervan and they are off touring Australia. Just after TOH dropped them at the van hire place, he then headed to the airport and picked up our daughter who has come for Christmas. I quickly changed the sheets and cleaned the house while he was dropping off and picking up our next guests.
Now I know why you can't book into motels until after 2 o'clock and you know why I haven't had time to blog. It sure is hard work having fun when you're retired.
