The Cameron Christmas Chronicle 2017
Since 2002 Written by your favourite Cameron’s 18th December, 2017
Bright blessings to you and your kin
It’s Christmas Time
Let the Cameron Chronicles begin!
A year of “Everything”, 2017 has been
But we will try
To Highlight all we’ve done and seen.
The QANTAS lounge is now a second home
As we have travelled
From Qld aerodrome to aerodrome
Twice to Mackay for family and band
To see all the Camerons
Cos’ it’s great to catch-up; you’ll understand!
Then this December, to Townsville we flew
Michelle & Matt’s engagement; with the crew.
Caithe drove her Mum, sister and niece
Just glad to arrive safely, in one piece!
While in Rockhampton, it was lovely to see
~ Owen and Ruth & his thriving family
(Especially seeing as Ruth was told she wouldn’t see much of 2017. The Myeloma is in remission! *flailing Kermit arms*)
Lex went on a Band Trip, we know what happens there
Duncan, Dave and Lex –
Playing (up) in Mackay and Rockhampton square.
Of course, The Clan rehearsed and performed for all
Mackay, Maclean & a concert at Wamuran Hall.
At JB Hi-Fi, Alex is now permanently employed
And Jacki had
Successful lap band surgery; we were overjoyed!
While in May, Haydn & Jasmine pronounced
That in February 2018
A new little Cameron would be announced.
In September, we decided to splurge on a FitBit
To monitor our steps
And compete against each other (although it’s not something we admit)
We’ve stepped and we’ve waved our arms around
To bemuse security monitors
And get that golden record of steps equalling 10 000!
Caithe’s heartrate when sky-high in November; she felt feverish
To only find out
She had Ross River fever and had been eating too much liquorice (seriously!)
She organised 30 ladies to go on a Retreat
At Camp Duckadang
For a weekend of Soul Empowerment – no easy feat.
Just before Christmas, on the twenty-first
We’ll have a party
For Caithe’s Mum’s 90th – to celebrate & converse.
With family and friends from far & wide
It’s lovely to
Acknowledge this milestone by her side.
Lex’s Dad, Alex, also arrives that day
We’ll keep him busy
With mulching & mischief during his stay.
Lex is now a Rail Safety Systems Manager
At Queensland Rail
With travel, tasks and investigations – it’s all a blur
Lex finished his Training & Assessment Certificate 4
He’s on a wee break
He’s found training and study is not such a chore!
In August 2018. We plan to travel overseas
To explore Scotland
To an even deeper and longer degree. Yippee!
Caithe’s work with the Celtic Mystic Market
Took her all
Over Queensland, for laughter and profit.
We lost some loved ones during the year
Sprinkling the year
With sadness, memories and tears.
As we look over 2017, when all is said and done
With only four weekends at home
We certainly toured & travelled while having lots of fun.
Simple joys, little pleasures,
Laughter and smiles in big measures.
Friends, family, togetherness, love…
The choicest blessings from above
Peace, prosperity and happiness too…
All these and more are our wishes for you!
