Carols and a birthday

Well, Blogger has finally let me load some photos - this is my third try in 24 hours!
Last Saturday night was the annual Christmas in the Gardens event and you can see the crowd was enjoying it.  The weather was balmy - till we were about to draw the raffle when there was a quick shower that sent lots of people home.

This is a very blurry photo but you can see the effect of all the children waving their glowsticks madly in time to the music - magic.

Two small boys were thrilled when the reporter asked to take their photo to appear in the local paper - and this featured both here and in the Rockhampton paper published by the same company.  We had several texts from friends down there who saw it.  They are becoming real media tarts, always seem to be in the right place at the right time. 

Hamish turned six at the weekend as well and of course had to have a party - and present opening is very important.

As is cutting the cake!
Christmas is looking good, even though I still have lots to do.  I had photos of my eyes today after the latest injection last week and there is a definite improvement, yippee.
I also had a session with the physiotherapist today - lots of massage and heat and some funny strapping on my leg.  My leg, and especially my knee feel so much better I am tempted to try for a short walk again.
If I don't get back before Christmas, I hope you all get everything you wish for, have a very happy time and we will be in touch again after the festivities.


  1. Wonderful news about your eyes and leg - hope the improvement to both continues.
    Carol in the Gardens sounds a lovely event and your 'celebrity' grandsons look so good in that photo.
    Love the birthday pics too. Don't work too hard and have a lovely Christmas and New Year.

  2. Glad there is improvement in your eye and that your leg and knee are feeling better,now to try for that walk.
    Have a lovely Christmas.

  3. Great news about both your eye and leg Robin. I'm glad that the rain stayed off long enough for the event to be so enjoyable. Love the idea of your grandsons being media tarts! Have a wonderful Christmas.

  4. So nice to hear positive news regarding your health Robin, hope things continue to improve. Looks like the evening was a great success, as was the birthday party. Lovely having some celebrities in the family...........LOL...... I wish the same to you and your family. Very steamy here at the moment, perhaps some storms tomorrow. Take care, see you in the New Year.

  5. Christmas in t-shirts, how amazing!

    Not at all cold here now, grey & wet but that's preferable to white & freezing which would mean the kids probably wouldn't get here - as it is they're safely on their way, can't wait!

    Have a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!
