Yarrawonga Christmas /New Year

G'day everyone ,

To start with I would like wish you all a Happy & Safe Newyear 2010.

My house is now empty till next weekend. (thats another post) It has been overflowing with family and friends, 22 in all.
My home resembled a camping ground with a Caravan, a family size tent and a few cars taking up most of the backyard. I had a lovely Christmas / New Year being spoilt and waited on,the Girls doing the shopping and preparing all meals , drinks served, every time I had an empty glass it was refilled very quickly.

But thats not all. Gary (Son) and Alan his (B.I.L) gave my fernery a garden makeover cutting my plants back and completely redoing the pond with Gary adding water features and flood lights, Not forgetting Marc and Colin for there help and also taking all the rubbish to the tip..

A Big thank to one and all 'xxxxxxxxx.

My Wish for You in 2010
May peace break into your house and may thieves come to steal your debts.
May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet of $100 bills.
May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips!
May your clothes smell of success like smoking tires and may happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy.
May the problems you had forget your home address!
In simple words ............May 2010 be the best year of your life!!!
I promise to get around to visiting u all in the next few days .
