Fmily in Sydney

It's Diane's 70th birthday today and we're lucky enough to have the whole family present. Carol and David live in Sydney and Bernie and Sonya with Fox and Banjo are over from Los Angeles for ten weeks so we drove down to Sydney for a party which is about to begin.

We had to visit a Telstra shop in Armidale as our WiFi didn't work. An hour waiting and they fixed it

We stopped next morning for morning tea, in Wallabadah when we saw this sign. We had to wait for a while as locals who walked in after us were served first, but the wait was worth it, the coffee was good.

Now we play with Fox and Banjo whenever we have a chance.

I took Fox with my iPhone and an appp called WordFoto. The picture is entirely made with the word 'Fox'.

Sonya and Fox, it's great to see them again.

 And of course the latest addition to the family, Banjo Foster Curry

Grandma and Granddaddy on duty, watching an episode of Fireman Sam for which Son-in-lad David wrote the music.

At the moment we're in heaven.


  1. How fantastic for the whole family to be there for Diane's birthday. Great pictures. Happy Birthday Diane!

  2. Happy b/day "Sis", mentor and my "Cross of Lorraine"!
    Churchill had de Gaulle - I cop you! Move over Winston, I'm at the top of this class group now!~
    Avoid the New England return trip to BNE, it was -7 celsius in Armidale this morning. I suggest the coastal route.

    Great to know that the "whole tribe" is with you, Diane, on this momentous advance into another decade.

    Hmmmm. I see no "shearing shed" yet for you know who?

    Now back to my tablets and bed!

  3. I will be off after this to look for a clip of Fireman Sam for Alannah.

    In Wallabadah there is a memorisl to all those who arrived in Australia on the First Fleet and the Second Fleet. One of my cousins was there last week and has taken some photos for me. I have an ancestor who came out in the Second Fleet.

    PS I am using the 'carbon cops' stencil tomorrow. Taa ...
