Happy belated birthday Deborah.

I had a quiet NY. We discovered we can watch the our local fireworks in Campbelltown from our upstairs back verandah.

We definitely had a hot Christmas this year and a hotter new year. The record keepers have been saying that 2014 was the hottest year for NSW in a long time. We had my elderly Aunt (turned 90 in December last year) over for lunch. She would have normally been with my cousin and her family on Christmas day, but they are overseas for 4 weeks. My Aunt lives on her own, around the corner from my cousin, still has a sharp mind and can do stairs. She does have a walking frame for shopping. We took her home after lunch as we could see a storm brewing. The round trip which should have taken 80 minutes, took us almost 2 hours due to Christmas traffic and heavy rain. While I was gone, my sister and her husband were in action mode as we had a mini 'cyclone' at home, flooding the garage and back verandah. The heavy storms have happened on and off for a month and its like the wet season in the tropics. The heat combined with the high humidity have been dreadful. Just as well the air conditioner works and its been on everyday. The same with the car air conditioner - We can't drive anywhere without it on. The car can be over 45°C when we first get into it.

Happy New Year everyone.

Have just set up new fish tank - what a faff! Looks gorgeous now but was tempted to give in 3 hours ago and leave them in the bucket! Christmas pressie from the mums.

Watching 4.50 from Paddington - my fav Miss Marple.Got a nice cup of tea and a mince pie. Perfect. May sound boring to you all, but I just love peace and quiet - after the year we've had.

Is it your birthday today Deb? Happy birthday if it is.

Does anyone know how Little Sue got on at hospital if she went in for day on Xmas Eve or Day? Thinking of her.

Right off to relax. Thanks for your best wishes Jo. Totally fed up with what I've got. I have a lovely bottle of Barefoot Zinfandel here and want to open it!

XXXXX

Merry Christmas everyone. I have had Christmas breakfast with extended family, Christmas lunch with other family members and have just finished Christmas dinner a couple of hours ago. Time for bed.
