Christmas is about family and especially children – and I don’t have any of these living with me or around me, but I am kept very busy with Christmas events and the like. This week is one of those big weeks.
Yesterday I attended the Christmas meeting of the 5W members at Queensland University. The lunch is held in the dining room of the Women’s College of the university and the staff are great as is the food. Yesterday it was roast pork, vegetables, and all the trimmings of a fine Christmas dinner, and awesome desserts as usual!
Around the dining room there are photos of various luminaries from the Univerity, and amazing stained glass windows along one side. One day I will try and take some more photos of them, but even in the one image I have captured you can see that they are modern – I note the students sitting at computers on the right.
Last night I attended (and was on duty to endeavour to keep young children safe) at a Beachmere State School Christmas function which Santa also attended.
On Tuesday I will be a guest on a boat called Eye Spy, which leaves from Redcliffe Jetty – it is more commonly known for its whale watching tours but I suspect all good whales would have high tailed it out of Moreton Bay by now, but I am still looking forward to it.
On Saturday it is the Christmas Party for Volunteers at the Caboolture Historical Village – and I shall be there.
