Because the boys love Thomas, and the tram in Charlotte, I thought I'd take them, and Mum, out for a ride on the train. Just a quick one - Tuggerah to Woy Woy and back. We were out at Tuggerah at 10ish, later than peak hour. Shouldn't be a problem right? Except that it's New Years Eve and every man and his dog is heading to Sydney for the day / night. The train is packed to the rafters , so we only got as far as Gosford, before we jumped off and came back. The train back was great, pretty much had the carriage to ourselves as the boys enjoyed the view and the thrill of being on a train.

We picked up Amy on the way back to Shelley Beach to eat lunch. A stop at Blythe's Fish n Chip shop (my favourite food place on the planet) had me over order for one last time as we set up on the grass at Shelley. Uncle Lindsay and Aunty Val also came down to join us. Here is another activity I'll miss - the luxury of always being so close to the beach.
After lunch we went down to Kincumber, to the Sheargolds, for Lucy's Birthday Party. Kel and Jase have a great house for hosting and have put on a great do for family, neighbours and friends. B loved the opportunity to hold some more animals again (hold a crocodile - sure!) while L was in his element on the slip and slide. King Of The Kids Jason, had everyone entertained all day. While Kel put on a spread that was fit for kings. No wonder her business, Yummy In Their Tummy, is a success.
