Delayed Bastille celebration at Smythesdale

Now that we’ve moved into our house¬¨‚Ćrenovated kitchen, bathroom and laundry I need to get more jobs done. Last weekend we drove to Ballarat to enjoy a delayed Bastille Day dinner with Jeff and Anne Langdon, Pat and Pete Cameron,¬¨‚Ć Michel and Beryl Morriset and their friends Arno and Diane(?) senior moment with the memory lapse here. The food wine and talk were plentiful although no plentiful when compared to 30 years ago.

 The next day Peter, Jeff and I  enjoyed cutting down three dead trees with chainsaws. there is something satisfying about sawing up a dead tree for firewood. On the way home pat and I stopped at Creswick factory to buy some alpaca throw-overs -$90 reduced which are $220 in shops. And today Pat drove Danielle over to buy one for herself and another one for a present.
