First was the trip to Singapore to visit sick rellies, then eye surgery for me, and then, a return trip to Singapore as the people we visited (my mother and Grandma C's uncle) both passed away within days of each other. Thanks to our friends who visited or sent messages of condolence. Your thoughtfulness is much appreciated
I think I've done my share of flying for this year!
For many years, there has been a growing trend for Perthites to light up their homes for Christmas, and Son No 1 and wife have been driving their kiddies round to see these homes.
Last Christmas, they opted to take their kiddies on a boat ride to see the decorations of homes along the Mandurah (a little town about 70 km south of Perth) canal development.
Grandma C and I tagged along.
I'm afraid, though, that's about the only picture I took but it gives you an idea of what the decorations look like.
Earlier on, before the boat ride commenced, these sculptural picture frames proved to be very popular not only with the children but also adults of all age.
Little Grandson B, of course, strutted about like he owned the place, and kept everyone busy trying to prevent him from falling into the water.
Finally, dinner was at the well known Cicellero's Fish and Chips.
