The Week in Review

Close encounter of the Koala kind.
It is traditional on New Year's Eve to look back over the year that has been, assessing the highs and lows...well, I certainly don't have time to review the entire year (pass me another glass of champagne please), so I've decided to limit myself to the past week. It has been an eventful and sentimental return to Sydney after four months as a London resident, and here are some of the highlights.

A Hungarian Christmas Eve - delightful!

A family Christmas Day - as it should be.
Sandy makes a joke  :-)

Santa in Antarctica (2005)

Boxing Day Balmoral Beach stroll.

The views from Gunners' Barracks at Georges Head - what the Harbour is all about.

Harbour, the heads, a ferry...must be Sydney.

Roast lamb dinner (it's been so long!) - thank you Jocelyn & Brian!

Roast lamb and three veg. Real food.

Whew! Enough for one week, and lots of Sydney memories to treasure 
back in the cold, cold snow of London.

Happy New Year to all and Best Wishes for 2011 from your blogger.
