Happy New Year.....

Welcome to the New Year.....
The month before Christmas has been go go go...here for us. We have had
Lots of markets to do as well as the shop before Christmas.

Christmas was here before we knew it.
Bruce and I took 
Harry, Mason and Will to the Christmas lights.

Was so much fun with these three ratbags.
They loved all the lights and displays.

Charlie our little Christmas elf...

All of the children and grandchildren were home this Christmas.
7 grandchildren to celebrate Chrissy with.....so much noise woops I mean mess....no no fun hahah

Christmas lunch was in the new Shed where 22 people sat very 

 Cassie got engaged over Christmas and here she is showing off her bling.
She will be marrying a wonderful young Christian man, that is just right for her.

With Christmas over we saw the new year in celebrating Robertson's 18th.

He isn't 18 until the 7th but with all the family home we had his party early.
A very late night was had by all....

The birthday cake was candle licking good as well.

So as you can see things have been busy.....
This week I am spending time in my garden unwinding and looking forward to the new year.

I have spent a couple of days cleaning and rearranging the shop at
The Old Dairy which reopens this Friday.
I have so enjoyed the year of 2015.....It has been a good busy year.

This year will see us slowing down somewhat...We will continue to do
markets and have the shop....Bruce will continue his plumbing business and now has Robbie on board so things will be easier for him...

Are you looking forward to this new year?
I am getting a cup of tea and off to see how you are all going....



  1. Goodness me, Mandy...Robbie is 18 already! How time flies. Congratulations to Cassie too. Your kids are growing up quickly. This year I must come down and have a look at your shop. It sounds lovely. Have a wonderful year.

  2. Hi Mandy, sure looks like you had a busy, happy few weeks, I can't believe how fast the kids are growing up.

    We had a family Christmas at Caloudra in a unit right on the beach, fantastic with the sea breeze and a beautiful view of the ocean,not to mention the short walk to get the kids on the beach.
    See you soon

  3. Happy New Year Mandy. Hope it is a great one for you. It is amazing how quickly your family is growing and what an absolutely beautiful family. Your grandchildren are so adorable. You are truly blessed, hugs xx
