Christmas Spirit

Today is Youngman's last day of the school year and he will be in year 2 next Feb. The School Report has been sent home and Youngman was cool on all key learning areas. The teacher's report said that he set a good example for his peers. He has already opened some of his Christmas presents and now he can just be himself and play with his Legos and make up his own storys.

The P&C put on a little drinks party after school, after a few snacks and beer, I am officially on Christmas vacation and off line......

We are heading down Melbourne . Mr. Silvermonk bought some carbon credits to plant trees so that we can all fly down this year to spend sometimes with friends and relatives.

We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Ps: we will be back in Sydney for the New Year Eve firework!

Carols in Victoria Park 08

Carol in Victoria Park 08, originally uploaded by silvermonk.

We've been to the Carol in the park for a few years now. It was organized by the St. Barnabas church The Park is a beautiful place with the city as the back drop.

We were having a very enjoyable time with children playing tips ( chase ) and the magnificient fire works to finish the night! We raised enough money on the night for the Habitat for Humanity to build a house in India.

We also seen the biggest full moon slowly creeping up behind the stage......

Well, after a hectic week of working on the bench, ( which end up drilling a hole in my thumb....)
I am glad that we had a relaxing and peaceful night out in the park.

We will be in the City tomorrow to choose some big Lego toys for the Youngman. He's been a real good boy this year apart from watching too much TV.

Best Ever........

The Finders Keepers Market was the best market i've ever participated in.
Lots of cool stalls, 10 minutes walk from our place, all the neighbours were there and every single one of the young and old handmade groovy people from Sydney were all there, even a lady from Chicago was there and got a present from my stall for her daughter, I was busy..... very very busy and tired and happy!

The organizers should be congratulated on putting such a wonderful and successful market!

The best part of it was seeing all these people with a beer or wine in hand while relaxing, browsing and supporting handmade!

See more of the photos of the night!
