Last day, first day

Today is my last day of work for three weeks. Hurrah! Tomorrow I'm catching a plane to Port Macquarie to spend Christmas and New Year's Eve with my mother, whom I haven't seen since last Christmas. I'm looking forward to it.

At the start of the year, my mum moved from Port Macquarie (a bustling city of about 70,000 on the mid-north coast of New South Wales) to a little town inland called Wauchope. I've been there before briefly a couple of times, but I'm looking forward to exploring it properly and taking some photos.

We're also planning to spend some time up in the nearby mountains. It's such picturesque country up there - so green and lush all year round, which is a  welcome change after the drought and dry grass down south.  (Click here for some pictures...goodness me, looking at those photos makes my camera finger itch!)

Of course I'm also looking forward to putting my feet up, reading some books and enjoying some maternal spoiling. Oh, and NOT  BEING AT WORK!

I'm not sure when I will have a chance to blog again - partly due to being away and partly due to more laptop problems (*shakes fist at 'puter*) - so I will wish you all a gleeful Christmas now. May your festive season be bursting with the simple pleasures that make this time of year special.

Finally, thank you all for reading and commenting and sharing your glee with me throughout the year. Looking forward to more of the same in 2010!

So how many extra days are you taking off, exactly? And isn't that computer fixed yet? Eager to hear how your travels and staycation have gone. :)

You have a great blog here. I like reading unique blogs like yours. I have a site myself which provides information on popular vacation destinations. I want my site to be a place where anyone from around the world can come and have that vacation spirit or "vacation feeling" as you can tell from my domain name.

I'd like to exchange links with you to help spread some traffic around between each other. Please let me know if this is possible.
