That was the year that was*

There's been bits I could have done without and there's been times that have not been fun for anyone living with me, but I'm finishing the year feeling not too bad at all and on reflection 2010 had a whole bunch of pretty fabulous bits too. Here's a few of them.

A beautiful day at the beach at Terrigal in January

And to finish it all up there was today, a lovely meal at Manly Fish Cafe, then ice creams from Royal Copenhagen and a paddle at the water's edge as the day ended.

Risking wet pants legs, or in Tom's case a wet bum

*happy sigh*

Tomorrow night we will see in the New Year with the usual suspects and probably way too much seafood - what more could one ask for?

Very impressed with your selection of brilliant moments.

Also, I didn't notice the first time, but the expressions of delight are exactly the same on Joss Whedon's face and on Caitlin's face. I love it.

A lovely way to end the year with a blog post of photos :) Hoping to see you when you come this way!

Depends whether you're thinking American satirists or British absurdists, because they both used it! Lehrer's the only one who made two best-selling albums out of it though.

Happy New Year to you and your lovely family.

Lehrer was indeed the one in mind :-)
