Omi's Cottage sign



Omi received a nice sign for Christmas for her cottage made by Rachael. Omi is tickled pink with it and now that it is fixed to the cottage wants folk to see it. The plant closest to her is also a Christmas gift.

The fruit basket from London


I must confess by the time this photo was taken for the blog Mum and I had already robbed it of its first layer it was magnificent. Thank you.

40 years Wedding Anniversary








Having celebrated our 40th wedding anniversay a little early with the Brisbane and Sydney Bosma's as well as with Anita and Reuben, pictures posted below, we were able on the 28th December PTL celebrate it with Gordon Irene James Hannah and Alister as they treated us to lunch in Kings Park at the Zania Cafe right in a National Park bush setting. Very enjoyable. I am sure that you will be able to spot the various family members and the happy couple.

After that we went for 'tree top walk' in Kings Park. It was just a wonderful setting and a beautiful summer's day.

Hannah posed with us in the original bridesmaid dress her auntie Margaret wore on the day 40 years ago.

While enjoying our treetop walk we received a SMS from David Julie and Elijah from the Netherlands, they arrived safely. We also received a call from Peter Rachael Joshua Nathan Leanna and Shalese a few minutes later. Anita Tom Eddie Sebastian and Rueben had sent a fruit basket with greetings the day before we felt really spoiled. Thank you all.

We also received a hanging basket with various plants from Mum's brothers and sisters in Holland delivered at the same time.

Love to you all
Mum and Dad

Anita and Reuben in Armadale Western Australia



Anita and Reuben arrived from London to Armadale within 24 hours door to door. It was great she was able to see Omi and show off Reuben.

You can see that Mum is as proud as Punch to finally hold her 11th grandchild.
