Hi Everyone, Carol and Ian just arrived back from Queensland and Come over Saturday to spend the weekend with us. Also Donna and family , Leanne and family and of course Joanne and family were still with me. Well all good things must come to an end. Ive had a wonderful Three weeks with family and friends, I must say they all spoilt and waited on me,by preparing and cooking all the meals, every time my glass was empty someone would fill it. Wow I was treated like a Queen.
All my vistors have now gone home, so I will end with a few more holiday photo's
It was so hot 41, 42c=about 103f, I went out and bought a couple of pool umberellas to add some shade to the shallow end of the pool, which Gary and Colin Bolted them into the concrete surrounds

Dear Jan ~~ Your photos are beaut and I am so glad that you all had a wonderful holiday together. Also glad to hear that you got spoilt and the girls did the cooking. It will be a bit quieter at your place this week.
Thanks for your comments and glad you liked The Penny story and the Senior Special Brekky. At least the lady got her eggs to take home. Clever lady.
I hadn't heard of the Perth heatwave record. of 49C ~~ hell~ that's 120.2. Lets hope it cools down some before we get it here.
Take care, my friend and get some rest after your busy time.
Love, Merle.

I hadn't heard of the Perth record heat ~~ Hell, that is 120.2, so I sure hope it cools down before we get it here.

Glad you had such a fun time with all the family Jeanette. It's good to see your photos.
I'm sure you're having a nice, peaceful rest now after all the frivolity. I hope your temps have gone down a bit. Ours would cool you off quick smart: around 12º (-11ºC) when we got up, and now there's an icy wind blowing.

Hi Jeanette. Nice to see more photos of you with family and friends.

I can't wait for summer to come and be able to do more swimming.

Take care.
