the end of another year

I know it`s been forever since i`ve ventured over ..I have shocked myself also..:)
Can you believe that we are at the end of another year already...I`m sure, no i`m positive the years are flying by faster or is it because i`m getting older???
This year we had a lovely 3 days of celebrating Christmas with family...That`s the trouble with having such a big family, trying to get everyone together at the same time so hence 3 days of cleaning preparation, cleaning and so on and so on....It all started Christmas eve and finished the day after Christmas....
Honestly speaking I was absolutely exhausted...After the final family get together I put myself to bed (early) and slept solidly for 12 hours and I NEVER do that....
Boy oh boy did I get spoilt this year by everyone, secretly it felt good...
Now we`re on the final stretch, one more family get together to see in the New Year...Something else which hubby and I for alot of years have never really worried about...Usually it`s stay at home , have a few drinks and nibblies wait till 12 then put ourselves to bed...Exciting stuff huh??
But not this year my friends....Pool party coming up at my sisters place and mind you we will be needing the pool...Just a mild 43 degrees here in Adelaide...Hottest New Years Eve in a century...
What a way to see in the New Year...
Well I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy and safe new year...
Wonder what 2011 will bring????


  1. hi Mandy, i miss your blogs so much. happy new year to you and your family. hope it's a good one for you all. i heard there was a change expected tomorrow arvo. hope so, and come back soon :)

  2. Mandy it is lovely to hear that you have had a great Christmas, although somewhat busy by the sound of things.
    My best wishes to you and the family for 2011

  3. The years they fly by, I remember as a kid thinking that a year was such a long time to wait for a birthday, xmas etc. But now I don't really have enough time to get ready from one to the next. The grand kids grow so quick, my daughters are showing signs of age..Shh! dont tell them I said that!
    I hope you have a great New Years Mandy and I'll see you on the flip side
