DD cooked some sausage rolls while I made sandwiches for our Blogger friends lunch.


Christmas GTG 2013


Julia, Myself, Tracee, my DD Sandra, Bev and Anthea spent a fabulous day getting to know each other better. Lots of chatting, laughing, eating and drinking. We enjoyed exchanging some lovely gifts and had show and tell… You can see these by visiting the other ladies blogs…

It is always a great show with fabulous dances, beautiful costumes and good music…


today it was time for my  four hour drive home in over 40 deg heat. Thank goodness for the Air Con in the car….
 The road was busy with lots of BIG Semis but when I stopped halfway at the roadhouse for a coffee and lunch was surprised to see this HUGE PINK shiny truck.

A nice young lady was driving it. It was all decked out for the “McGrath Foundation” what a great way to raise awareness for Breast Cancer…….

There was some nice mail when I arrived home but will post later as I am off to bed…

Goodnight,
Hugz  Maria
