      You too Anabel, when I get a moment (?) I would like to sit down and just browse through some of the blogs I follow to look at older stuff. This blogging is very time consuming 🙂

    Bless you, Jude! This is beautiful! Thank you so much 🙂 It’s a lovely collage and so ‘you’. Wishing you a quiet, peaceful Christmas, as you would want, and only good things in 2016. I’m looking forward to the relocation and hope it goes smoothly. Sending hugs 🙂

          My target is Easter – to be in and settled. Nothing else can go wrong. Can it? Besides my daughter has already booked herself (and sprogs) in for the Easter holidays 😉

      It has certainly filled a gap in my life – does that sound sad? Although travel has been thin on the ground this year as we were anticipating a move. Hopefully 2016 will at least fulfil that dream 🙂

      1. Not sad at all. You’ve found a new passion. I know part of the pleasure of writing my posts is revisiting our journeys and going through all the photos. Do you think you will return to Australia some time in the future?

          Yes, that’s what I enjoy, the remembering of the travels. I still have some to write, including my overland trip in 1973! Must get that one done. As for Australia, I hope to be back next year, but not sure when. My son and partner are expecting another baby in May and they are now in Perth, so two reasons to return 🙂

        2. How exciting to have a new grandbaby to look forward to. Perth is a long way from here but if you decide to come east you’re welcome to visit.

    What a gorgeous collage Jude and thank you for your lovely posts this year, especially the bench challenge. I’m looking forward to the next one. Blogging is addictive isn’t it, as well as the creativity there are the friendships we make and I’m grateful for yours x 🙂 x

      The friendships are an unexpected part of the pleasure of blogging. Initially I just wanted to get my travel trips written and do something with the tons of photos I have amassed. The interaction with others far outweighs that pleasure. Likewise Gilly 🙂

    Lovely collage Jude. I’m looking forward to catching up again when we get home in 2016. Sounds as though you will have a busy year, moving and maybe a trip over here. I’m looking forward to following along on your adventures. I agree, getting to be part of a community on WordPress is the unexpected pleasure of doing blogs. How lovely it would be to have an annual real time get together. Enjoy your Christmas and best wishes for all to go well in 2016.
