Local ladies Margaret McDonald and Viviane Wheatley enjoyed a wonderful weekend in Canberra, to coincide with Mothers Day. They travelled up on Saturday to attend the Carole King Tribute show. This year marks the 50th anniversary of Carole's famous "Tapestry" album.
(Viv still has her vinyl LP). Both ladies have been fans of Carole's music forever.
The show was at the Canberra Theatre and it played to a full house and was enthusiastically received.
While there, they caught up with some dear friends and also Marg's daughter, son in law and two grandchildren.
They also fitted in a trip to the Arboretum and then called in at Braidwood to pick up some yummy treats for Viv's mum Violet Merrett, who they visited for afternoon tea on their way home.
Jean Seigert, formerly of Broulee and now of Lake Conjola, was down for the day to have lunch with her old friends from the Friendship Group.
What beautiful weather it was for Mothers Day and it was great to see the town busy, with lots of families out and about, treating their Mums out for her special day.
I hope all the mums around had family or friends around them and were spoilt on the day.
June Carter of Broulee has just returned home from a trip to visit her family in Sydney. This time, they had to celebrate Mothers Day a few days early.
Marilyn Godwin of Surf Beach had a trip to Canberra last week for a Medical appointment. While there, she caught up with her daughter, granddaughter and two great grandchildren and they all had lunch together at the Queanbeyan Golf Club.
Tony Monaghan of Broulee very proudly told me he is expecting his first great grandchild and by the end of the year, he will have four. Think of those extra presents you will have to buy Tony.
Gay Lynam of Surfside was really looking forward to her monthly trip to Ulladulla, for Ten pin bowling with friends. They usually have a great day, with lunch out included.
Belated birthday wishes to Jean Sweet for her birthday last Friday.
