Welcome to our blog

We both live at Simpsons Gap in the West Macdonnell National Park, Central Australia, the best spot in the NT! Our blog is for friends and family to see how we are going, and to share in what we have been up to throughout the year. Please leave us a comment, and we hope you enjoy!

Merry Christmas!

We hope that everyone had a fantastic Christmas, and that you are looking forward to the new year. We had a great day - only about 30 degrees, 10 down on the Wednesday before, and we had a great time with our best friends - 8 in all plus 3 small children. The camp oven roasts were awesome even if I do say so myself, and Lyndon declared that it was 'the best Christmas ever'. Not bad I reckon! Anyway, here are a few pics of the day. Happy New Year.

Kylie and I spent last week at Ormiston Gorge (me for work, Kylie for fun!). We both enjoyed the change of scenery and the chance to swim at the waterhole. I made Abbey the table and chairs - she loves them but won't get off them, even for dinner! We hope everyone has a great xmas and new year break - talk to you all soon.
