HAPPY HANUKKAH, December 8-15, from E. & M.
Our Hedy and Gary are off on the 9th,- to India and Thailand respectively.
We wish them enjoyable 3 weeks and we pray that they return safe and sound!
The Paul and Gloria Malinek family are expecting a new addition to Mandy and Baron's brood,- a new sibling for Blake; the Mitchells are off to Disneyland before the arrival of their new cousin; and so we shall be farewelling and celebrating with the family at a pre-Hanukkah bar-b-que this week.
A first-night candle lighting will be on at Kathy Kaplan's on Saturday complete with ponchkes (donuts) and latkes (potato pamcakes).
Christmas Day lunch as usual at the Rozens in Shoreham, then New Year's Eve at the RACV Club in the city. Our holidays will start on Australia Day when we shall sail across to Davenport on the Spirit of Tasmania to celebrate our 55th Wedding Anniversary at Cradle Mountain with the Balints and the Gordons! A visit to the MONA Gallery is also planned.
Some of our friends are not so well, so we wish them all a speedy recovery. We all look forward to happy and enjoyable events which we pray will go ahead as planned.
2013 should be an active year in many respects, including in the various National and International Women's Councils in which I am involved! I am really snowed under at the moment, so am looking forward to a restful period over the coming holiday period.
Let us know your comings and goings over this coming period.
