Work Xmas Party

This weekend we had our work party at Fern's up at Byfield. Marc went to the Gold Coast for the 'Ultimate Fight', and on Saturday evening Shane and David drove up to Cairns for a holiday.

Darryl and I headed up to Ferns just after lunch. It was a beautiful day, the temperature just lovely. We set up the truck at the camping area and sat back to read the paper and wait for the others to arrive.

Eventually we headed over to the picnic tables and quite a few of the others were there. It was very pleasant chatting and eventually everyone had arrived. Darryl and Aurora (Simon's partner) headed over to play volleyball, and I was finally convinced to join in (but was absolutely hopeless). A few of the guys and gals got into the spa. Later, as the evening started, two teams headed off to play volleyball, so some of us sat and watched.

We headed in for our meal about 8pm. I had a steak with mushroom sauce, which was delish! Marto was great with the music and lots of us enjoyed dancing. It was well after midnight when everyone packed it in.

Darryl and I got up fairly early on Sunday, although no one else was around. (I SMS'd Shane to find out that he and Dave were about 100km south of Cairns).We went for a walk down to Cochrane's Cabin where Brian and friends were. Brian was up and about - but only just! Then we headed back up the road to the Lagoons where everyone else was staying. On the way there, Kathlene SMS'd me to say that breakfast was on. The Lagoons was a lovely house, very nicely decorated, and nestled in the middle of a lagoon with several islands. Darryl headed back to Fern's to pack up and bring up the car, and I enjoyed a fantastic breakfast prepared by the guys - bacon, eggs, mushrooms, sausages, scrambled eggs and orange juice!

In the early afternoon we headed home. It was a really enjoyable weekend!
