Thank you to so many people for their Congratulations and Good Wishes on our 40th Wedding Anniversary. They are appreciated - every one of them.
We had a wonderful few days in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney. We stayed at the Bellbirds B&B, set amidst lovely gardens where the Bellbirds call all day and the frogs croak all night.
The unit was fully self-contained, although our delicious breakfast was cooked for us each day by our very friendly hosts and served in their beautiful conservatory.
Our attic bedroom was huge, and I really wanted to bring it back for the grandchildren to play in. It was fantastic and was so cosy when the dark clouds and thunder rolled in on Sunday afternoon, and down came the rain. I was hoping it would rain so that I could listen to it on the roof. It was so wet that evening that we didn't bother going to a restaurant for dinner. We stayed home and ate 2 peaches, plus a whole large apple pie and a bottle of cream. Yummy!!!
During the weekend we visited 2 spectacular gardens at Mt Wilson and the Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens. Shopped at the Blackheath Markets and were bedazzled by thousands of beautiful items at the Antique Stalls. We ate wonderful meals that I didn't have to prepare, saw magnificent scenery, took lots of photos, read books and had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing time.
We don't think we'll wait 40 years to do it again!!!
