Sometimes it’s only in the middle of showing friends around this beautiful city that I remember how long we’ve been here. (We lived on this very canal at one point.)
We remember every day how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful city. Would you like to know more?
The signs of January fill the streets.
The weather has been perfect to have guests, and have them indulge in the local cuisine! Would you like to know more?
My name is George and it has been two weeks since my last post.
In the last two weeks *heads off to look at diary* Himself and I have up to all sorts of shenanigans! There was a cocktail party celebrating Chinese New Year, there were guests who we had the absolute pleasure of showing around some local markets, there has been more sampling of exquisite local fare, there was a surprise trip to Campbelltown, there was mitten knitting (my first colourwork!), lots of future event planning, bookdepository.co.uk, and the continuation of the exercise regime.
I have been slack. Only one of these things has produced photos.
Look at my beautiful almost a mitten! *has an immense proud*
The exercise regime has also resulted in shin splints. Incredibly, and sometimes debilitatingly, painful. I missed my opportunity this morning to grab you all a photo with me at the physio with acupuncture needles sticking out of my shins. I’m sure you’re all devastated. I have been ordered to not run, or walk home again, until at least Monday and will be heading back to the physio on Friday for further rehabilitation. Yay! Fun times!
I have yarn on it’s way for me to be able to finally finish the knee high socks I began before Xmas. Due to my cashlessness, and an ordering snafu it’s taken a little while, but we appear to have gotten there in the end. So soon you shall have a fashion show starring these …
… but they’ll be finished. *grins*
Let’s all catch up again soon now, y’hear?!
It has been a great and glorious year, full of family, friends and creativity. There’s been a change of day jobs, some trips to Kiwi-land, and much re-discovery of our surrounds.
For my three faithful readers, from my family to yours; stay safe, and be happy.
See you in the New Year!
With lots to see when you’re acting as guide.
There’s the expected sites,
and the unexpected!
(I now want to do something similar in the back yard!!!)
