I'm enjoying a sunny morning two days from Christmas, and as a special treat we had breakfast out down in Apollo Bay this morning.
It's dawned on me that I've got until the end of February to just stay local and enjoy the town, and the holiday feeling, and the visitors.
I've spent a bit of time this month getting ready for the weekly Saturday morning market on the Apollo Bay foreshore.
We've got a steady flow of friends due down through January, so I wanted to have time to spend with them without having to run away to my workroom to sew.
So I have a big pile of new cushions all ready to go to market.
Although, they look so nice all lined up on our bench out on the back deck I might be tempted to just sink into them with a magazine and a drink...
