Well I wish everyone out there a good and happy New Year! Not sure what happened to 2008 as it just seemed to whizz past at an alarming speed! I was all ready to watch the fireworks at Sydney harbour on the TV and as usual I missed it because I had fallen asleep, duh!!
I had to watch it on the morning TV news but I do have to shake my head in wonder at the amount of money which was spent on the fireworks display, unbelieveable! Yeah I know what a party pooper I am but does it have to be so much money?!
So, what does 2009 hold? Well, I won't know until it happens but I do know there will be lots of bear making happiness going on and my daughter Samantha may be getting married sometime in June but not sure yet.

After deciding last week that we needed another Christmas tree I spent most of yesterday putting the tree up with some help from hubby and then got stuck in with the decorating of it. I think it still needs some more Chrissie bits and baubles and we still have to put the lights on it which I will have to buy this week as we just can't seem to find the ones we use to have.
Anyway, after all was finished I got the girls to pose in front of it - not sure that they were too happy with their accessories though!

Brimbin Forest

Not many sleeps left now until the Big Day but I thought I would take some time while I still have the chance to tell you about my bears name.

Brimbin Forest is a real place and is a huge nature reserve and part of it is actually at the end of my road where I live. Brimbin is an Aboriginal name but I haven't found out what it means yet. All I know is that places like Brimbin Forest were used by the Biripi people to collect bush tucker and for cultural events. A lot of native animals live in the reserve but you don't get to see too many as most of them are nocturnal and it is also supposed to be a great habitat for Koalas but I haven't seen one yet.

I've been told that if you see a pile of poo at the bottom of a certain gum tree then to look up and you might see a Koala. I see a variety of different birds in the area and one particularly spectacular bird that I do see very often is the Yellow Cheeked Black Cockatoo.

I'm a New Blogger!

Here goes nothing! The ramblings and wafflings of a new blogger. I still have a lot of work to do on it but thought I would make a start by telling you all I made it at last! It's like having a whole new face lift as I have also redone my website as well. If I am honest which I truely am then I have to say it is all the hard work of himself (my other half of the team) while I made the tea's and did the all important supervising.
If you stumble across this first posting then I would love to hear your comments!
