And the winner is......


Well it wasn't me....  Boxing day is traditionally the day we go to the Races... We had a fabulous day though even if none of us made a fortune.  The weather was spectacular, the fashion fabulous and all in all a great day was had by all.

Emma and Brad went with some friends.  The girls got all dressed up and wore wonderful hats. Quite the thing to do. We caught up with them on and off during the afternoon.  She took these photos of me and hubby and my Mum and Dad and I took the one of her.  Just another wonderful summers day in Auckland.  Today has been just as lovely.  Lots of sun and warm weather.  Hubby is off to the beach for a swim right now.  We are rather lucky to live half a kilometre from the beach in either direction.... Murrays Bay one way and Mairangi Bay the other.  Still not quite warm enough for me to swim... maybe by the end of January the water will have warmed up enough.
Hope Christmas was great for you all and thanks for stopping by.
Take care
