What happened in 1999??
December 31 1999Welcome to the new millenium and HAPPY NEW YEAR to all! Y2K has come and gone, with no devastating effects which is good news!
December 29 1999
It's been raining since Christmas, until today which is fine and sunny. Last night we had all the family home for dinner - goodness knows when we will all be together again, as Martin is off to Mt Isa next month, and Coley drove back to Mackay today, & leaves for the UK in March .. but we're hoping Coley will be able to return for Martin and Wendy's wedding later in the year.
December 25 1999 - Happy Christmas everybody!!
Christmas! We were joined by Harvey's mum, plus all the Sandersons (Harvey's sister's family), and enjoyed eating a hot Christmas dinner on the deck - turkey, pork and ham, plus lots of goodies, including some raspberries (for Judy!). Luckily the weather remains cool for Christmas.
Friday December 24 1999
Christmas Eve and all the family is home - Coley is home from Mackay, Martin and Kirsty are here, Wendy is back from Ernest Henry .. and we will all be outside tonight watching the crowds and listening to the carollers - the above photo is taken from our place looking at our neighbours over the road - they do this for us (and half Brisbane) every year! And bigger and better every year!
If you are reading this around Christmas time, we wish you all a very, very happy Christmas, and all the very best for the new millenium!
Special Christmas wishes to Fay and Andrew in Auckland, Matthew and Jo in London, Graham, Jenny, Madeline and Jillian in Memphis, John, Annette and Leona in Timaru, Alice in Sydney, and to all these people and anyone else who happens to be reading this ...
Monday December 19 1999 - Christmas is close!!
The shopping is done, the weather is good, the rum balls and fudge are in the fridge, the Xmas cake is made, and Coley will be heading for home tomorrow. So roll on Christmas .. we're ready for you!

Friday Nov 6 1999
H&J returned from 5 days camping at Fraser Island - what a beautiful place! Unfortunately the weather was somewhat unpleasant at times - windy, and quite cooool. Only one swim for the week! But the solar shower was great! The dingoes managed to unlatch the catch on an eski the first night, but all they got for their troubles was some milk and juice, and everything locked in the vehicle after that! We drove up the beach to Indian Head, and Champagne Pools, plus through the interior to the rainforest of Central Station. Tides were quite high, & the beach quite rough in places. Fishing NOT good, but enjoyed a few dart for breakfast.
