Not sure if today’s challenge is referring to Christmas or a holiday/vacation
This year we had planned a holiday to Canada and Alaska.
We also planned to visit the huskies
on Mendenhall Glacier at Juneau
However, thanks to Number 1 Son ‘popping the question’
last New Year’s Eve we had two unplanned visits to New Zealand.
The engagement party weekend in February was hardly a holiday
but we had two weeks in New Zealand later in the year
prior to his/their wedding.
As soon as the latter excursion was thought of
it did not take long for the Hobbit Movie set
to come onto our radar and a visit was duly arranged.
We have just had
Number 2 Son
(equipped with his electronic candle)
to watch Carols by Candlelight televised
from the Sidney Myer Music Bowl
held every year on Christmas Evening
with proceeds going to Vision Australia.
It has been a nice evening with one
of our sons and daughter-in-law.
Who knows, perhaps next year,
both boys and partners will come.
Number 1 Son is spending Christmas
with his New Zealand in-laws this year.
As it is now 1215 on Tuesday December 25
it is appropriate to say…..
Definitely time for bed!
On Christmas Day after lunch all will be revealed.
an eighteenth birthday
To celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary last year
we took a hot air balloon ride over Melbourne.
celebrating a birthday.
MGW’s Father had breast cancer in 2008.
Chemotherapy was taking its toll so
as his oldest grandsons/grandchildren presented him
with a wig for his birthday.
For many years we lived in fear of one killing the other.
Then a switch was thrown and they became civil
with each other.
Not sure of the occasion now, however,
I think The Blues Brothers may
have been the inspiration.
Finally, apologies for the rough Photoshop work.
