We’re about to greet the new year and I want to shout out a G’day from stinking hot Adelaide.
Don’t be fooled by the home-made version of our tree for this year… we’re not in gay Calamiac, we’re down here in Oz. And on the eve of Christmas, our family’s old tree, after 40 years, decided to hang up its boots – so Lilas and I put together a ‘Xmas Tour’! It’s a wonder what you can find in a shed full of old boxes…
And I must say it’s thanks to you, Mum, that we have a ‘tree’ this year. Much to my objections, you put up this tower, festooned with ribbons as part of the decorations for our post-elopement-wedding party. Did I squirm! – wondering what the Frenchies would think… But it was a hit, and thanks to you, it’s come out in full glory again.
Bonnes Fetes and Happy Days for 2014…

We are also in Sunny Adelaide, in Glenelg, greeting the New Year. France is a bit too cold for us for Christmas and New Year but we love Carcassonne on June, July etc.
HI Lynette. Thanks for your message! I love Glenelg – and our last swim (sniff) on our trip was actually at Glenelg beach, where we had an adult and baby stingray swimming just one metre away from us. It was beautiful.
All the best
Happy New Year to you and Ben…enjoy the sunshine while you can xx
Thanks Jill! And a very Happy New Year to you too! We’re now back in France – looks like we escaped the incredibly high temperatures!?!
All our best xo
I wondered if you were back, now I know 🙂 Hope all is well your way!
I am A. Back and have been off the radar of late due to an unfortunate accident… will let you know more, but just a quick note to say Hi and hope you are well. And I was sad to hear of the loss in your family too, I hope you are all okay.
All my best, Kat xo
