There's a fair bit of champagne around too….but that's always a good thing. What was it that Winston said? "In war we need it and in victory we deserve it." Something like that anyway!
Saturday saw lots of people out and about doing their "Christmas thing". We were on a mission!
Well, it was good to be on a mission in light of the shocking events of this week.
I considered not doing a post as a sign of respect to those innocent citizens and children who died in shocking circumstances this week in Cairns and Sydney.
But then I thought…no…let's raise the issue…and appreciate people celebrating life…respecting themselves and others. I mean, isn't that what it's really about.
So dear readers…here's Brisbane….5 days out from Christmas Day.
|The beautiful Jay and Peter….down from Darwin and celebrating in Brisbane.|
|We're on a mission!|
|Walking, walking, walking…..now where can I|
get that special gift?
|Even pooches know how to share the love.|
Have a look below.
Clearly thinks he's a celebrity!
|Yes, the mission was going very well|
but I needed a little rest.
And is that champers
that I can see?
|Walking, walking, walking….searching, searching, searching….it's hard work being Santa's helper.|
|If you want to look gorgeous in Brisbane (or anywhere for that matter)…then head here.|
Camargue will find the perfect 'ensemble' for you.
Trés, très bon!!
|This is Jessy…the owner and designer|
of The Molten Store….all the mothers, daughters and grandmothers
were there….well, a girl needs a jewel or 3!
Santa absolutely insists that a girl be
well-jewelled and adorned on Christmas Day,
|We're all gorgeous like this in Brisbane.|
You're a *STAR* Jessy.
|Pooches were waiting patiently as their owners shopped|
for watermelon, cherries, peaches and pineapples.
All good fare for Christmas.
I made Drunken Cherries for friends this year.
I think they'll enjoy them.
|The most beautiful person….from the UK.|
She just loves Brissie!
|Brisbane Relaxed Style…parfait non?|
Chanel chapeau….an essential accessory in Brisbane.
|You bew-dee (aka beauty)!!! |
And yes, we really are that friendly.
I'll try to do another quick post just before Christmas Day…if I get time between all the cooking!
|BIG THANK YOU my Albany Creek friends….your Christmas|
