This morning I caught the train up to Newcastle Showground at Broadmeadow to go to the Newcastle Farmers Markets. The train journey was more relaxing than driving and battling the Christmas shoppers traffic.
I had a lovely time and came home with
a 6-fruit loaf, a blueberry and banana loaf
and some home made soaps.

Early tomorrow morning I will be driving up to Coffs Harbour to spend a couple of days with my sister, Cathy and B-i-L, Greg.
What to expect Santacon is an annual convention for Santa and his holiday brethren. Expect holiday cheer, unconventional gifts, naughty carols and general mayhem. Do not expect to be entertained: Santa IS the entertainment!
How to be Santa Santa doesn’t just wear a cool suit and invade your dad’s liquor cabinet: he also brings gifts! A gift can be a reindeer game, a song, a dance or a joke to entertain Santa and tourists alike.
How NOT to be Santa Santa never endangers his reindeer with violence, vandalism, inappropriate groping or theft. Santa never gets SO jolly he needs babysitting. Santa never expects to get away with behavior that an ordinary citizen wouldn’t.
It’s not a bar crawl Every time you call Santacon a bar crawl, a sugarplum fairy dies.
I was up early today to put a second coat of white paint on the wardrobe in the second bedroom which previously been stained and then spent this afternoon vacumning, putting the handles back on the wardrobes, changing the doona cover, sheets and pillowcases and hanging curtains. Photos tomorrow.
