Happy New Year For Those In Need
Happy New Year to all my readers, I hope your passage into 2011 was as lovely as ours was. A casual party at friends' place around the corner and the kids almost made it to midnight. L was wide awake though and keen to see the fireworks, so we went home and watched them on TV. They were spectacular as usual, the Sydney Harbour and it's world famous icons (the Bridge and the Opera House) make a fantastic backdrop for the fireworks as the above image shows.
We are still enjoying the boys holidays and the weather has been good to our summer holiday. However, not everyone is enjoying the beginning of 2011 as we are. Please spare a thought and maybe some cash for the victims of the Queensland floods. We have just celebrated a time of year which is about peace and goodwill and of course gift giving. So if you can give go to your local major (Australian) bank or to www.qld.gov.au/floods for further information on how you can help.
Happy New Year.
