I hope that you all had a wonderful Australia Day however you spent it. Our day started with a street Barbie to welcome new neighbours who had just moved in and also to catch up with those we hadn't seen for a little while over the busy Christmas break. We all had a wonderful morning with lots of eating, talking and laughing. Everyone agrees the biggest change in the street are the children, so there was lots of talk about ages, height, year levels, uni, etc, etc. It always amazes me that we gauge so much in our lives by the ages of not only our children but also the children in our neigbourhoods, friends, customers children and of course childen in the extended family. This Christmas break seems to have flown by at an extraordinary pace but I have finally finished the newsletter and it is now loaded on the website. I hope you enjoy reading it.
