“The evening news starts with ‘Good Evening’ and then
proceeds to tell us why it isn’t!”
Irene and Neville Aurousseau celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary recently. A slap-up Chinese dinner was in order and they are both looking forward to sharing many more years together.
Caity Callender is off to Sydney for TAFE. Caity is completing her last year, and her major work, as a jeweller at the Sydney Design Centre at Enmore. Keep up the fabulous work, Caity!
Michael Ziegler and Nadine Desantis were out and about for the long weekend enjoying what Moruya has to offer in the way of breakfast for Sunday mornings. This very attractive couple from the Bay do this on a regular basis, really enjoying what the shire has to offer.
Sharon Callender, proprietor of the Bodalla Bakery, is very excited about her new venture, Sugar Pie at the Narooma Plaza, opening on July 2. We wish Sharon and her husband all the best in their new venture. If the “goodies” are anything like the Bodalla Bakery offerings, then count us in!
Happy birthday to dear little Taylor Griffith, celebrating her glorious second birthday with a party for family and friends last Monday!
Phil Mayberry, from Mogo Nursery, is off to Arnhem Land to teach agriculture at an indigenous school. Great way to escape the South Coast winter, Phil, and do something really worthwhile at the same time!
Jenny Scott and three girlfriends have just arrived back from a short break in Cairns, where it was sunny and 26 degrees most days.
They snorkelled on a reef tour, went to Kuranda on the train (and return by skyrail), drove to the Atherton Tablelands, and also to the Daintree and Port Tribulation.
On their return to Sydney, they spent a couple of nights there, and did touristy things like coffee in Bondi, a ferry ride to Manly for lunch, dinner in Chinatown, and saw the Vivid light show that is currently on in the city at night.
Jenny said it was just lovely!
Mrs Farrington-Smyth has found more than a hot toddy to sip by the fire at the snow. We haven’t heard from her for over a week, so everything must be “cosy”.
DYK? Buying instant mashed potato and keeping it for emergencies in the pantry is a great way to ensure you always have delicious mash for warm winter dinners, and it keeps for 12 months.
YUM: Whether Royalist or Republican, you have to admit that the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations were very enjoyable for everyone, a few days of good news instead of gloom!
YUK: If you are travelling between Moruya and the Bay, add 10 minutes to your ETA as the George Bass Drive roadworks at Tomakin are slowing traffic considerably, especially around 8am to 9am and then again at knock-off time in the afternoon.
