My birthday was on the 7th. This lasted a week as I had tea with my grandson Jacob on Wednesday night, Thursday I went to Walton and picked up Janet Wine and went to Hamilton for a day out, having lunch with Adell, visited Janet and Bill's 2 month old granddaughter, had tea with Casey and Adell. Visited Janet's sister Gayle at Gordonton well we called but she was not home. Arrived back at Walton at 9pm. Tired but had had a good day together. Friday I went with Janet and bill to Matamata had morning tea with Pam and Paul Paynter. Met Peggy and Darcy in Morrinsville for lunch. Cass Sutton came to tea at Bill and Janet's. Headed home (Thames) Saturday morning and Janine and family came down and we all went down to the Grahams Town Markets, walked to MacDonald's for lunch, Jacob's shout. Then rounded off a good extended birthday with tea at the RSA on Sunday night with friends and sisters Peggy and Fay and their husbands listening to Joy Adams. I had such a good 69th birthday I have made it my 70th so I don't need one next year (NOTE from web designer: That's what she thinks).

Went to Whangarei to see Claire, Bronwyn and Jeff's new baby, Gail's first grandchild. Calling into see Dorothy and Barry at Waipu, stayed a night with Margaret Neal at Port Albert and visited Heather Searle in Warkworth.
My grandchildren stayed with me for the Pohutukawa festival riding the trains and shopping for Christmas.
