This is just a short note to wish all my blogging pals a very happy new year! May your 2008 be filled with love, happiness, good health, prosperity and of course, heaps of blogging!
Last night Jim, the kids and I went to a friends place in the afternoon. This kids swam for a couple of hours as it was around 32 degrees celcius and not a cloud in the sky. We ate pizza for a quick dinner then drove to a place on Sydney harbour around the Drummoyne area. We had a perfect view of the harbour bridge and the city skyline without the heinous crowds. Surrounded by a wonderful family atmosphere we set up camp with our folding chairs, picnic rug, champagne and nibbles and waited for the fireworks. They were OUTSTANDING as always! Unfortunately my camera was being very naughty and my pics didn't turn out but I'll post some professional shots of the harbour once they are uploaded onto the Sydney city website. I hope you all had a lovely evening also and I can't wait to read all of your posts and see your pics :)
Today was spent de-cluttering! I always wait till new years day to take down and pack up all my chrissy decorations. Once all the boxes are packed away back in the garage I was on a roll and gave the house a good scrub and I always love to start the new year with fresh bedding. It's amazing how much bigger the rooms look after the christmas stuff have come down lol
As it was another scorcher of a day, this evening we enjoyed another relaxing bbq under the shade of the grape vines in our backyard.
Several new years resolutions and a list of future accomplishments were made around the table including finishing my studies, obtaining part time employment within the design field, spend as much time as a family as we can, as well as the usual stuff like save money, exercise more and eat healthy lol :)
I also wanted to mention that I'll be away on a short holiday break with my family for a week from thursday so stay safe and I'll look forward to catching up with everyone when I get back.
Bye for now,
