I hope you all had a merry, relaxing Christmas. Our was spent with my brother and his family, with a breakfast bar-b-que by the beach, prawns and roast turkey and salad for lunch on the back deck by the pool and another walk on the beach to watch the sunset….a great Aussie christmas!
Today the cricket has started, the family have gone and I am sitting by the pool wait for our lunch visitors to arrive.
How different in wartime, with rationing, wondering if your family would survive, and being so far from loved ones. So many people in the world today live the same fears, and it makes me so grateful to be living in Australia in 2016!
Anyway, a few little snippets from December 1939….
