A night out in Brisbane

Last night we had a lovely night out in Brisbane with friends. Paul had a work Christmas Party to attend so we decided to make the most of a lovely mild night and spend a few hours strolling through this lovely city. Of course we stopped for dinner! It was a lovely night.

Dance Christmas Party

We had our dance Christmas party yesterday - loads of fun and great to catch up with everyone. Dancing has finished for the year now, but we have already started our dance for next year, which we have picked up pretty well, for old girls!! Here are some pictures and don't worry it's not your eyes, I think my favourite old camera has finally given up the ghost - all the pics are slightly blurry - and no it wasn't the photographer!!

December Already!!

Doesn't the year fly by. This time last year we were in the States spending our days at Disneyland!!

So much has happened this year, it seems like a whirlwind, but here we are a couple of weeks away from Christmas!

Ballerina had her Year 9 Graduation during the week - going into Senior School next year, I can't believe it!

Paul is back at work, Skaterboy is busy at work and my job is frantic at the moment. And to top all that off our car broke down yesterday, I have done my back in and the vacuum cleaner decided to stop working too!!

So this year we laughed, cried, holidayed, drank, ate, had fun, worked hard, played, shopped, spent, loved, enjoyed, wasted time, relaxed, learnt, stuffed up, made mistakes, had great times, had sad times, got angry, got on and son on. But most of all we did what we wanted!!

Oh well sh__ happens and life goes on.

Here are some random photos from our year!!
