December has arrived, heralding the beginning of summer,
and the weather is playing ball.
I got slightly sunburnt while out walking yesterday.
The Christmas tree has been erected in Anzac Park.
And on Saturday we had our annual Market Day.
The organizers were hoping to get about 8000 people along
and as it was a good day I'm pretty sure they did.
Both ends of the main road were closed off for about six hours.
The shops were open and a lot of them
had tables outside with sales goods on them.
There were critters for the kids to interact with
and bouncy castles at either end of the street.
Little Flick was there as well,
who remembers him from their childhood?
I used to listen in on the radio and hear his tale.
Lots of kids riding on him :)
A sound stage had been set up and there was almost
continuous music throughout the day as well as a talent quest.
Of course there were a lot of arts and crafts stalls
as well as produce and boutique style products.
We found a lovely pendant we are sure
our eldest daughter will love. One Christmas present
down, heaps to go. Oh well it's that time of year.
We have to have the overseas posting done by Thursday
and we haven't bought anything yet!
Methinks tomorrow (Wednesday) will be a tad busy.
We spent an enjoyable hour or so down there,
and did see one or two other things we'll maybe
go back and buy sometime from one of the boutiques.
And that is pretty well it for this week.
Because the sky is blue
I am going to join in with;
Until next time, keep well.
Don't overdo things
and enjoy the season.
