welcome to 2010. we ended the old year and started the new with the dreaded gastro bug ! yuk. I'm such a sook, I couldn't believe how sick I was and the girls scoffed as they had it too and didn't feel as sorry for themselves as I did. I'm sure I had it worse (again, scoff). the only thing I could do on New Year's Eve was finish my 10th pair of socks. Today was 35 degrees but not at the beach, Point Peron, south of Perth, where we had a swim and lunch - there's a rock ledge where you can jump in to chest-height water - otherwise I don't get in past my knees - I love this place!
