  2. Well I have been on a break - we had time away with family in Melbourne - Had a great Christmas (had dinner at a race track - no horses though) and a really great New years Eve - best we ve had for years - Ended up at mid night in the city centre with 200,000 people and the fireworks - they had lots of different entertainment it was a beautiful night - warm and no clouds.

    The weather was hot although not as hot as where we live before Christmas - we had had a week of 35 + degrees days - a couple of 40 degrees amongst those - for those of you in the snow - that's equal to your 100 degrees (F)

    We shopped, went to the cricket and visited Museums and Art galleries and an open plain Zoo (Didn't get to the Main Museum to see Par Lap will next time) as well as saw family and friends and most important didn't think about work

    Anyway l get back here and have just been boring to try and see what l have missed - Its so scary since l last logged on there have been 1789 thread discussed with over 23,000 posts - no way any one could catch up with that amount of information and have time to eat - so l hope you are all well and have had a good Christmas and a happy and safe new year.

    Thought l would pop a photo of my children taken at Lunch
    It's not a great photo of them but it's hard to get them in the one place at one time.

    Cheers to all Tookie
