A great day was had by all who attended – Norm (of course….life partner and husband extraordinaire), Rosey, representing all the immediate family and Sharen (cousin) representing all the extended family both those still here and those absent.
Norm and Nola after the investiture in front of the ‘little’ water feature in the garden at Government House
To quote Nola “It was a great honour to experience the investiture and also to just be within Government House, I felt really privileged and enjoyed the fact that I could share that with my family. My Dad would have been stoked that Jeff Hook of Herald Sun cartoon fame received an OAM on the same day”.
Quite a collection to bring home…the kids have made a few interesting comments about who will get what when Nola is no longer here to which her response is …..”Better treat each other well because it all has to stay together”. You have to laugh.
