Hi, Merry Christmas!! Hope you all got through the chaos intact!
It is Boxing Day here, an official holiday but since trading rules were relaxed a few years ago all the big retailers open for their huge post Christmas sales...am i shopping??
Not bl---- likely!!!!!!
I am having just about my favourite day of the year...get up in time for the cricket, give thanks to God for children who are now old enough to pour milk for their own cereal, take their own highly involved packaging from their presents and use screwdrivers to insert batteries....have coffee with husband who has come in for breakfast after starting at 4.30 am cutting the second cut of Shaftell clover and say.."well done you!!" Then move to couch and watch cricket in peace!
I have also just managed to have a shower, make the bed and do two loads of washing but that is the extent of the day. So to all of you who told me to chill out, I'll tell my husband I am just acting under blogger's orders!!
I had my family here yesterday, then I had to wander 20 metres to my MIL's for tea. Lovely to not have to travel, which we have done all bar 2 times in our married life Christmas days.
My sister and I had a good laugh, she gave me S*x and the City and I gave it to her!! I even scored the perfume off my lovely friend Robyn...if you are checking on me Rob, I hope you are having a great time..(and Caz!) Mum decided I needed a bag like in the movie, my sister suggested I was nearly right for bags, but it is here and looks like I need a chihuaha!! A few other things spread around so I am very fortunate.
I finally got to open my SSCS and I was very lucky there as well! All from Lynn E in Canada,
Thank you so much Lynn, this was great fun to open and all beautiful!
My daughter participated in the swap as well, she swapped with Chooky Blue's daughter, the present will have to wait, she has gone off with her Dad for a while and Baby born has gone with, securely wrapped in her new Heather Bailey quilt!! Baby born slept with her mother wrapped in it last night as well, so thanks Fairy Girl, it was gorgeous!
And finally...a little of the reason for the season.
Here is the bulk of them at the finish. Sorry, the quality is not great, I was upstairs singing in the choir and it was getting dark.
Hope everyone else is in rest mode...love Tracey
