I managed to pry Bill away from his computer and get him to go for a walk. Walked through part of the park and the we left the park and visited Lake Dennis which is short distance away. We sat and watched the ducks and the peaceful lake before returning home through the park on a different track.

Bill volunteered for Radio 4EB the ethnic radio station in Brisbane on the weekends. He produced and presented the Swiss Radio program for many years until the digital revolution and the World Wide Web took over. He enjoyed his time there.
In summer we spent a lot of time in the pool. Both the girls and daddy trying to balance on a float mat but it didn't last long.

When guests arrive we pick a number out of a box and that tells us which table we are sitting at. They mix up the single people and the couples.

After six months of dilly dallying, the workmen finally finished making a wider firebreak around the perimeter of the Daisy Hill Conservation Park and they have opened the walking tracks that were closed off while they were working. Part of that perimeter borders our village. So we have a new firebreak around our village. Yesterday my friend , Helen and I went to explore the firebreak now that the tracks are open again. Not all the tracks were closed, just the ones near our village and the perimeter of the forest.

My Story continued:
It was a hot summer in January 1980. The girls were given new outfits for Christmas from Aunty Ada.

Some time ago our CEO, Chiou See, asked Bill if he would live stream her son's wedding so that her family in Singapore and the bride's family in Japan could watch the wedding live, since they couldn't travel here for the wedding due to Covid 19.
So we went along to the wedding held in an historic house courtyard in Brisbane. We spent all afternoon live streaming the wedding until Bill's Phone sent a message saying "iPhone is too hot turn off." Then Bill continued on Chiou See's phone.
It was a lovely wedding and we enjoyed the job even though we were tired when we got home. The bride's mother and Chiou See thanked us profusely for doing this so their families could watch. Chiou See said she would like to pay for us to go to dinner at her favourite French Restaurant as a 'thank you' for doing the filming.
So on my birthday last month we booked up to go to Aquitaine Restaurant at South Bank. We invited friends, Val and Peter to come with us. The food was delicious, the service excellent and the view lovely.
