THURSDAY 30 DECEMBER HOBART
We had another quiet day.
John watched the Test cricket on TV. I read.
After lunch we went for a walk around the streets, and alongside the railway, for an hour or so.
The caravan park is really filling up now, as people flock in for New Year celebrations, I guess. It feels too crowded here.
Tea was soup, ham, salad.
After tea, I phoned V, thinking she would probably be out tomorrow night. She was tired from a hectic Xmas, and then having to work for the rest of the week. She was pleased with how her Boxing Day party went – all the disparate family elements mixed well, though R arrived a couple of hours late and did not stay long. It was great to talk to V.
None of the offspring has commented on whether they liked their Xmas presents! V was the only one who sent us any gifts, apart from cards. Made me appreciate her effort with the book vouchers all the more.
