We got up this morning on Australian Mother’s Day. We put out the days alcohol for a bit of fun and Pam was all but hidden, well there was to be eight of us. After breakfast Jim went out and bought me strawberries to enjoy one floating in my pre-lunch champagne, simply delightful. Walter and Vivienne arrived after new friends Ellie and Heather. Pam prepared roast lamb and all the trimmings with a delicious pudding. We enjoyed sitting al fresco and after we had been thoroughly spoilt a Canadian couple (neighbours) popped round for a drink. Late afternoon was the perfect time to walk to the beach for champagne, strawberries and sunset.
Happy Australian Mother’s Day to Kim xx xx, Jenny xx xx, Kate xx xx, Sarah xx xx, Vicky xx xx and Rachel xx xx, thank you ladies for our gorgeous grandchildren.

Out through the garden passing Matilda, through the woods and out onto the beach where Jim and Pam settled on a blanket.

In the seven years since we have seen Jim and Pam, they haven’t changed one jot.

We enjoyed watching a fisherman bring in a fish.

I was treated to a sea eagle and brahminy flight displays, clearly should have brought the big camera........

We sipped our champagne with strawberries and enjoyed the sunset. Back home after a tasty supper I lost terribly at our first game of Wizard but surprised everyone with a win in the second.
