Finishing the last of the Christmas shopping today.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

Well done on finishing the Christmas shopping Margaret. I only have my brothers to buy for and they have gift cards.
K Atie I agree totally. The year flies by far too fast. I hope DD gets on well in Melbourne.
I was going to visit my brother but he rang and has a horrid cold so I have put the visit off until he is better. I don't want him sharing.

I've just been reading about the rain in Victoria. Stay safe Chookie, mab, Marina and K Atie.

Thanks, Cookie.  We got off pretty easily in our part of town, but it looked fierce elsewhere.

Thanks Cookie about the rain.  We have had steady rain for 2 days, not floods like in some places.

Thanks Cookie,  We have had some rain but nothing like the rest of the state.  The forecast for today is for heavy rain but tht is for further east.

Good news about the rain. I hope K Atie wasn't half way to Melbourne.
It's rather hot here today, I'm sure it has only been done because the test match is being played here this time.  ;D

Oh my gosh I left at 6.30 am and we went straight to the dentist at 10.40 , that trip takes 3 hours normally! It poured for the first hour at 80 ks . We got to the Ballarat rd turn off , we keep going to Westgate Bridge it took us an hour . The traffic was bad , 8 ks . DD is fine front Braces moved higher and the surgeon was pleased , she is to do intense exercises to strengthen her knee ! Tell a teenager to exercise! She will but think it is a bit wet to ride her bike . All good . We zoomed around and got so wet that we were laughing . A dash to Apple store to look at computers . Late visit to great nephew and nice , this was our highlight as we gave them a toy Thermomix, yes he was allowed to open it early but too funny as he had gone to bed and new normally that he was not meant to get out “ it's ok mummy I will open it in the morning “ . He put it next to his mum's T31 thermo .
Today we left and thought it was meant to be fine we spent many hours in Ballarat shopping . I was getting two Tyers fitted , but there was a problem . Anyway we headed home and stopped close to home at a friends home to pick up my cardigan I had left behind . As we went up the drive it bucketed down for an hour . Cup of tea and chat. Really what a couple of days .

Yesterday we visited a friend who has just bought a unit in a retirement village.  We were very impressed with the communal facilities and his 2 bedroom unit. 
Today we are going to Melbourne for 2 nights.

Do you look at the Myer Christmas windows Chookie?

We had friends round this morning and then this afternoon we went with DD to look at a couple of houses to build.

Cookie, we often look at theMyer windows but they are not as good as they were years ago. 
Yesterday we went to Lygon street.  King and Godfrey’s has been 3 years being renovated.  It is fantastic. It is an Italianstore with lots of imported Italian food.  It has a wine bar and Cafe.
We bought a Cake for GDs Birthday from Brunetti.
