  • There’s so much to do in Winter, especially if you check out things in your community paper or local library. check with councils too, as they often know of or organize things to do, especially during school holidays.

  • I was excited about the contents of this post until I realised it was for 2013 and not 2014!


    • Bit tricky when out dated blogs still pop up on MoM pages and tease us with things that are no longer available. Lucky we can find some interesting activities online for this winter or devise our own : )

  • June and July, the two months of the year I don’t like, if I could just stay snuggled up under the covers I would. There’s plenty on for 2014 as well, a check of What’s On in each locality via a Google search brings up plenty of events. I’m sorry I missed the Possum Magic Musical last year.
