This is a picture I took soon after M and D arrived with the hired truck on Thursday, the 11th of February. We were expecting a small truck, but it turned out to be a huge truck! One of the first things they unloaded was some garden furniture, which I think is going to be lovely to have in the backyard.
These are some of the boxes they unloaded apart from the above garden furniture and lots and lots of other things.
Before that Thursday, the 11th, we sorted out hundreds and hundreds of books. Several hundred books were given away or recycled. But still quite a few books remained for ‘safe’ keeping. We had to rearrange a lot of bookshelves!
Last Sunday was the 14th of February. We took a break from sorting out things and met the family for lunch in the park. Afterwards we went to the Port Kembla Saltwater Pools. There were heaps of people in the pool area, for it was a very warm beautiful summer’s day. Our whole family enjoyed the water, including our darling little great-grandsons.
Here now are some pictures from the park by the lake, were we met the family for lunch. Monika did bring along fish and chips for all of us from a nearby shop.
It was so good to see all the family on that Sunday. We are looking forward to seeing them all again at Easter. We probably can see quite a few more family members since not everyone was able to make it last Sunday.
During the last few weeks, we discarded some of our furniture that we do not need any more and to make room for a new set-up. Here is one piece of furniture that is to stay, for now!
