I did intend to do a post before Christmas day wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, but the madness of pre-christmas set in and I forgot completely. So ..... Merry Christmas!
My brother and his family came and stayed this year and it was really nice seeing and sharing my niece and nephew's excitement Christmas morning.
Christmas lunch is always a roast dinner with all the trimmings. This year we had 14 for lunch.
Tea on the other hand, is leftovers and salads plus far too many desserts!
Big and little cousins keeping each other amused playing X Box.
Poor little Buddy trying to have a rest after such a big day entertaining the visitors.
This is the beautiful big bunch of Kangaroo Paws that my girlfriend gave me from her garden. They are magnificent and I think the perfect floral arrangement for an Aussie Christmas.
I decided to take advantage of Nic being home and took off to Melbourne for a couple of days this week. I stayed with my girlfriend and we had a great time time shopping, dining out and catching up with a few other friends. I discovered a "new to me" shop called Zetta Florence. I wish I had money to burn as I could have spent a fortune, but I was good and came home with only a couple of things. I am in love with all the stationery and the whole atmosphere of the shop.
I want to wish all my fellow bloggers, followers and friends and very Happy New Year and a wonderful 2012.
