The Year Begins With a Holiday

For me, the year always begins with a holiday. Every January our family goes to Merimbula for two weeks – after New Year’s Day, to the same house, with the same two families of friends. The kids who were toddlers in the beginning are now teenagers who sometimes come and go on the bus rather then brave the family car trip. Once we would rush arund ‘doing things’ but now we rest and relax.

But the friendship never changes. Not one bit. It’s the perfect start to a new year.

There are always highlights although these too have a habit of recurring year after year. We do what we like to do!

Booktique, Merimbula, NSW

Highlight No 1: I visited the Booktique Bookstore and gave a talk to a group of kids. Booktique is one of my favourite bookstores – books, chocolate and coffee! And Michelle, the sort of person every booklover likes to find in their store – someone who loves books and knows all the answers to a customers’ questions.

Pambula Show: Longest Blade of Grass

Highlight No 2: The Pambula Show and more specifically, the official Longest Blade of Grass in the exhibitor’s hall. I have to admit I didn’t see it this year. #2 son was in a cast and tackling the Show on crutches was too hard. But my friend Amy reported back complete with a pic.
