It seems it's sometime since I added to my blog. Since returning from our honeymoon the motel has kept us busy with Robin painting rooms , updating some of the TV's in preparation for digital TV which comes to our part of the world in May 2011. Three more have been purchased leaving 7 more to be purchased before the changeover date. During the past couple of months we have made a couple of trips to Ballarat and had the pleasure of the company of member of our family & friends staying and visiting . I have made a few trips to Frankston catching up with friends and for shopping. Robin had an enjoyable if not wet day at the track on Phillip Island during the motor bike grandprix in November. We managed a night away even if it meant getting up at 4.30 am to be back here for duty. An enjoyable time was had by all.
Christmas preparations are well under way with most of the shopping done. This weekend , the 11th of Dec. sees us planning our trip to Ballarat to catch up with our parents , children, siblings and friends for the day, our only opportunity to celebrate Christmas with some of them On the 20th my daughter will be down for a couple of nights with Christmas feasts planned for both nights as she will be on night duty at the Alfred. The requests are for a Christmas roast on the first night, a seafood extravaganze the second and if she stays the third a barbque.
The night of the 23rd Robins eldest daughter, husband and children arrive for Christmas, staying until the Monday. His youngest daughter , husband and grandson arrive around lunch time on Christmas day by which time Robin and I should have finished cleaning the rooms. We are planning a spread of cold meats and salads with all the Christmas trimmings.
I wish everyone a very happy and safe Christmas and New year.
