Hope You Had A Wonderful Christmas ...

Hello, Dear Blog Friends ...

Just a quick one from me to let you know that I am still alive, and to thank you all for the loving Christmas wishes. I'm not sure if I got around to all your blogs before we left for Bonnie Doon, so if I didn't ... huge apologies, and a belated Merry Christmas.

Well, wonders will never cease to amaze me ... we actually had a "White Christmas" ... yep, you are reading correctly, it actually snowed in various parts of Victoria, Australia, on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day (remember, it is the middle of our Summer !!). We, in the suburbs, didn't actually have snow, but we had some pretty heavy hail, which left the ground white ... it was beautiful. But, which silly bunny forgot to take photos ...yep, that would be me !!! On our drive from home to Bonnie Doon, we got a bit of sleet, and a heap of very heavy rain ... much needed, I might add, for both the drought situation, and the bushfires. We are now back to summer situations, and it is wonderful. Although, I kinda hoped it would rain for at least a few more days !!

So, we are at Bonnie Doon, and having a very relaxing time. It seems my internet connection is working at the moment ... yay ... so I will try and do a bit of visiting when I can !!

Hope everyone is having a great week.

Till next time.

Take care,

MEOW

President Bush wanted me to remind you that climate change is still a myth. There is no credible evidence to support it.

My Christmas was unusually warm. Go figure.

Hey there Missy! Glad that you have survived 'the season'. We didnt get our traditional storm on Christmas day, though the humidity had us all believing that one was coming, and treated us to restless nights on Christmas eve. Chat soon.. lots of love, nic xox.

Hi Meow ~~ I am glad you and your family are enjoying your time at Bonnie Doon. How about that white Christmas? We had heavy hail at Princetown (near Pt.Campbell ) and we
had the wood heater alight several days. I ad a great time, but am glad to be home. I wish you and family a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous
New Year in 2007. Enjoy the rest of your holiday. Take care, Love, erle.

Marie said...

The happiest of New Years to you all!

I can't believe that you had snow! Here I sit in the cold north of the globe and there is not a snowflake to be seen! Please send it back to us - I really miss my snowy winter days.

Rachel said...

Our Christmas was rainy and now our New Year's eve is rainy as well. I am not crazy about hail, it's always frightening when it hails, especially if the hail is very large!

Sounds like you are having fun at Bonnie Doon!
