Before Christmas, I spent three days with my two brothers in Newcastle. The obligatory game of Scrabble was enjoined, with one brother consulting a really really old Oxford, and the other receiving unwanted advice from his progeny. Good fun, all round.
On Boxing Day, I visited my uncle (my father's older brother) in Royal North Shore. He was 91 last September and is aiming for his century. He goes out to a rehab hospital tomorrow prior to returning to his own home.
And here is my darling grand-daughter, Alannah, taken today where I got to feed her and read to her, and play with her.
