A big year

We intend to spend 2011 celebrating our respective BIG birthdays - doing something special for each month of the year. Rob's birthday celebrations started (a bit early) last Sunday morning at the Hyatt Hotel - breakfast with his Mum and me and J&J&E.

We had a lovely day today on his actual birthday: early lunch with J&J&E, then a French film at Dendy for us and then home to share a special bottle of red.

Except all celebratory aspects diminished as we started to hear about the worsening situation in SE Queensland, with 1/3 of the state declared a disaster zone, so many people dead and missing and so many shocking images bringing back memories of the traumas of the 1974 flood in Brisbane!
