Christmas is o-v-a-h

29 Dec

Normally i’m a very meticulous speller, but that’s a Kath & Kim reference, teehee!

Anyway, this year i’m flying in the face of tradition and have taken all the decorations, cards and the tree down early. The tree was annoying me because we’d moved the dining table to make room for it, and once i got in the swing of things i got a bit carried away and it’s all boxed up for another year. It’s a little bit sad that you can literally just box up a whole month and not even look at it for the next 11 months!

Evidence:

It appears we’ve accumulated a significant amount of christmassy things this year!

So that leaves me with a month or so of undecorated-ness before i start going crazy for Valentines day….kidding…..kind of 😛

Our Christmas

26 Dec

Yesterday was Christmas Day, and what a lovely day it was. Being just the two of us this year, we slept in a little, had a coffee and opened our (ridiculously huge amount of) presents at a leisurely pace.

We had a lovely lunch of salad, cold ham, garlic prawns, and lots of little treats. And a rather potent punch to wash it all down!

And we spoke to our loved ones who we were so far away from. Cue the (mostly) happy tears!

 All in all we ate, we drank and we were merry.

Today is all about relaxing, watching cricket and eating leftovers. I’d show you a picture of the leftovers but most of them somehow ended up in my belly 😉
