A New Year - a new start

Happy New Year. I hope it brings you everything you wish for

We spent our New Year's Eve here, where MONT and three mates have been working on their house for the past, oh, it seems like forever.

It's at Bonnie Doon and this is the view from the front of the property. The last time I was here, there was no water and cows were grazing on the lake bed and you could see cars going across it

It was just us...and the dogs...

MONT cooked us dinner and we had a couple of glasses of champers, as you do.

It was hot and because there's only a generator for power, we had no fans or air con through the night. Just too noisy to run it while you're trying to sleep...there was a nice breeze coming through the open door though and it did cool down a little. It was glorious watching the sun come up welcoming not only a new day but a New Year!.

I feel extremely lucky

This is the view from our bedroom....gorgeous!

Thank you for all your support and kindness over the past 12 really has been appreciated!

I think there are a lot of us who are glad to see the back of 2011 and are hoping 2012 is a little kinder and gentler. Let's hope that's the case.

Happy New Year everyone... make it a safe one!!
