It was the day after Christmas and ...

Well believe it or not Christmas 2010 is done and dusted. Can't say I am sorry really; cos for many reasons I am not in top form this festive season. Family dynamics have meant that we did not see many of those who we normally would at this time of the year. So much pain and anguish and past issues...all too much for me really. Usually I am the peacemaker the bringer together of the troops, but right now I am experiencing what I call the Black Dog biting, yes depression. Although I am taking medication it is not working as good as it should be, so the result is one not so happy chappy-me!

So I don't make this post all gloom and doom I wanted to put some photos up that the bloke took recently. I think they are a beautiful spot on a otherwise dark period in my life.

Aren't they pretty? These are known as 28's also known as 
common green parrot. Many farmers consider them as pests, but there are others who love them in the garden and grow plants to encourage them to visit. The colours are great on the eye.

The above photos was taken last Wednesday night when we celebrated out first Christmas dinner of 2010. It's a bit blurry sorry but it is a nice reminder all the same. My second eldest daughter and her partner were of to Tasmania the following day to spend Christmas with their friends. Good food, good company-nice.
I do like how the candles look all frizzy, yeh I'm strange like that. :)

What happened at your place this Christmas?


  1. Hi Jan

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. Bloke's photos are beautiful, and I agree with you entirely, frizzy candles are what we all need at times!
