My husband who has been working in Sydney for a few weeks arrived home on the Friday in time for little Josh's proper birthday party with his little friends from day care and play group plus their parents, which was held on Saturday 25th.

On Sunday 26th, we joined my work colleagues and partners for the Clinic's Christmas breakfast at Mr Walker restaurant right on the Mends street Jetty, from where you catch the ferry to the city across the Swan River. The restaurant is really well located and I can imagine the city views at night would be amazing.

When breakfast finished we wandered across the road to Mends street where a street market was being held.
On the corner of Mends Street just across the jetty a new building is coming up. With just 12 luxury apartments I was curious to find the price they were being sold for.
Just check out the Echelon apartments video to see what you can get for a mind boggling AUD$5,6million for a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2 garage apartment just across the road from the river with city views.
I'll have to start playing Lotto, there's only 5 left!!

Two weeks ago I finally had some time to make home-made Christmas presents - soap, foot balm and Lemon butter.
At work the 6 receptionists all make a personal gift - fudge, jam, rocky road, etc and it all goes in a nice gift bag to give to the Doctors. This year the Drs will get a jar of Lemon butter from me.
The soaps (recipe here) and foot balm will be given to friends who will join us at home for our Christmas celebrations.
