Morning all

from a sticky overcast Adeladie, it looks like it wants to rain but cant quite make up its mind......

had a lovely flying visit to Sydney over the weekend for a girlfriends 60th, I was one of the surprise guests, she still cant get over the fact that I came all the way from South Asutralia just for her birthday ......doh, its not that far.......

we decided we would have a minimalist christmas this year, the tree has been up for abaout a week but no decorations......hehehe will have to add some as it looks very forlorn.......

working right up till at least lunch time on christmas eve, then rush home to get ready for services and peopel visiting......

Wishing all the WATTLERS spouses and families a very jouous Christmas and a safe and peacefull New Year and may 2009 be a great year for all of us.......

Love June (cowgirl in Adeladie)

Marie from Bathurst, Hello Everyone, I have been without my computer for awhile an electrical storm blew the modem but i am all ready to go again, yeppie!!!!
I would like to wish you all a Joyous Christmas and God Bless you all also all your Families.
We have just had another storm this time a large amount of hail and my car was out in it, I havent been out to see what damage it may have done.
Thank you all for your friendship and the laughs that I get from reading your posts. Merry Xmas to all the U.K.friends who post on this site. I was pleased to hear that Vic., is finally getting some rain.
Love to you all.
Marie from Bathurst.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas. Hope everyone has the best day possible.

Marie - we're supposed to be in for a storm this evening - of course that will depend on how much wasn't dumped on you. Hope your car isn't damaged at all.

Merle - sorry the knee's not as good as you hoped - don't think the skateboarding was the right physio!!! Have a great day with the family on Christmas Day and hopefully the New Year will be a lot brighter for you.

Lara - all the best for you and Mike for Christmas and the New Year. Hope things go well for Cassie in her new venture.

June in BB - best wishes for you too for Christmas - watch out for our leftover storm.

One more 4 hour shift and I can relax for 2 days. Got a reprieve as it has been decided that we will not be opening our store at 7 am on Saturday - thank the gods for that as I would have had to be at work at 6 am

There are still people out doing last minute shopping - hope they realise we are closing at 6 tomorrow night.

Nitey nite for now

Good Morning Wattlers AND Merry Christmas :-)

I hope today finds everyone well and got all that they wished for today, whether that be presents, a lovely family day or just a quiet one, enjoy.

Lara yes I got your card, but for some strange reason Im not sure if I opened it, was a flying visit yesterday to my emails. Hee hee I am a bit like you when it come to my present from David, had to go shopping with him as he could not think of what to get, so I walked into a couple of shops and then said oh this is nice and cheaper than the ones I looked at the other day in another shop, well that was it he bought it for me, even had to wrap it myself, he was only going to tape up the plastic shopping bag the shop put it in. Wonder what he would have done if I had of gone to the jewelery shop and started looking at um ......... say wedding rings :-))))))))) Im sure he would soon find another present then haa haa haa.

Merle (((hugs))) for you and do hope you knee gets better soon, I have a friend who had a reconstruction and she keeps on getting a recurrence of an infection in the knee, but please come on and chat to us and dont bottle it up inside, we are here to listen, no matter how much you winge, it does good to let it out.

~~~~ to everyone, tried to get in sandpit this morning to wish everyone there Merry Christmas but cant get in, must be doing site work :-(

Anyway had better get ready for the girls and David to wake and the rush for the tree lol, I've already been and watered Raspberries, had shower and breaky, now waiting for everyone else to get ready and then we can go to Nans :-)))) Enjoy your day everyone.

Happy Boxing Day

Still can't get into the sandpit - funny cos I can read but won't let me post although I was able to answer one of Mary's yesterday.

We had a quiet day. I had 3 loading of washing and ironing done before lunch, so now we can have a day out for someone's 60th birthday.

Back to work tomorrow until days off on Wednesday and Thursday.

Hope you're all working off yesterday's lunch and not got too many leftovers.

We got back from Orange yesterday,sat. and the traffic was very heavy,,There was a accident at the foot of the Blue Mountains near Hartley so we had to do a detour,,but was so glad there was a detour to take otherwise it would have meant a trip all the way back to Lithgow and up the Bells line of road,, a very big detour..our lucky day...

My puta could get on line at Orange but it didn't like receiving emails on another IP address, so had to wait till I got home ...Funny that as I could get on the Internet no problem,,Ah well must be glad for small mercies....

Lara So glad you are having a good time ooop north..hope Tigers knee is holding up ...John got bad while we were away so we came home early..would have like a few more days there but ..never mind..
