Happy New Year

Tee Pee

Happy New Year!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas?

I’m back from a fabulous holiday with my immediate and extended families and ready for another year of The Poppy Files for 2014.

You might want to grab yourself a cup of tea as this post is an epic!  I’m sorry about the photo overload, but I have so many to share with you!

Gibson Christmas

On the Sunday before Christmas we drove to Hagley to spend time with my family.  As usual, we ate far too much food and were spoilt with amazing gifts:

Davies’ Christmas

Prawns & Champagne

Tee Pee

We then enjoyed seven days away with Nick’s family at a fabulous holiday house in Middleton called Wavestation.  We enjoyed all the trappings of the quintessential Australian summer holiday:  ham on the bone, prawns, champagne, pavlova, picnic rugs on the grass, boat trips, long summer days and children playing with buckets and spades, riding bikes, scooters and sliding down water slides.

I will let the photos speak for themselves but it was so delightful to spend time with loved ones.

New Years Eve

A beautiful Hobart evening, we enjoyed the 9:30 pm fireworks on the water with friends.  I was even home in bed by 12:00 am.  A very sad state of affairs!


Tomorrow I will share with you our recent boat trip – I don’t want to overload you today!  Xx
