Away for Christmas
We left our home that weekend for our first and second Christmas with his family up the mountain (Mount Dandenong). And stayed through to Boxing Day. Fortunately Liam's parents run a bed and breakfast cottage up on the mountain which is lovely. And Lime and I were given a cottage for our time up there. Lush! Www.adeline.com.au
Then to escape the family but not return home we headed down to Torquay.
One of Liam's friends Dave has a family beach/golf house down there. And fortunately for us they were all off to Hawaii and the house was empty!
I say beach/golf as it is on the first hole of a golf course but just a 5 minute walk from the beach (and my dune).
It seems to be the thing for everyone to have a beach house in their family around here. And they all seem to be in Torquay! We had a few people pop through to say hi (such as the lovely Belle pictured) and a few others were local for some of the week.
But we had a lovely quiet new years eve in front of the Telly with wine.
Given the earlier weeks news (on my dune) I had at least one bottle of sparkling every day and am enjoying the lack of alcohol this week!
