Noreen Bain, of Catalina, recently hosted Friendship Group ladies to a morning tea, which turned into lunch. Noreen got out her Christmas tablecloths, bon bons etc to make everyone feel "Christmassy". It is only four weeks away. Have you got your tree and decorations up? Presents sorted?
Your regular Gossip gal has been gadding about South Australia and was on Kangaroo Island before dashing to leave before the borders closed. Last heard from in Northern Victoria.
Make time to check out the Botanic Garden gift shop, cafe and lovely green surrounds. The cafe has some lovely Christmas gifts, pottery and gifts with blue wrens on them. The wrens have always made their home at the gardens, but disappeared after the fires. I don't think they have returned. The cafe serves morning and afternoon teas and lunches, inside and out.
Belated birthday wishes to Jennifer Grinlinton, of Long Beach, and best wishes this week to Sandi Bye of Tuross Head.
Some people dream of success.. while others wake up and work hard at it.
