At home for the last time, we got to work! We were expecting around 40 immediate family, and those considered family, for lunch the following day. Isn’t that what everyone does a week and a half out from settlement!
A branch from one of the bottlebrushes growing down the lane made the perfect Christmas tree simply adorned with a few decorations that we had found during previous visits. With the tree set up, a few additional decorations were set out. Then a table was set up with a a few bits and pieces to take everyone on a trip down memory lane. Added to the table were sweet pea seeds, and coathangers that mum had covered, for family to help themselves to.
