oh dear dear dear...Christmas is just around the corner isn't it....I saw Hayley's ticker and tried to ignore it!!
My gosh Kate and Hayley, you certainly have enough Christmas spirit for all of us put together LOL!!!
Hayley that must have been a terrible strain on you guys doing all that travelling in one day!!
Goodness I don't know how you coped!! I am glad that you had a relaxing time last year and hopefully you will again this year too!!
Our Christmas day is spent really relaxed. We only buy the kids presents and we do as little preparing as possible...up here it usually gets pretty close to the 40*mark
, so it is quite hot. My mum ran herself rampant for all the years that I can remember and while everyone else was relaxing, she was running around making sure everyone was ok and never really got to enjoy Christmas. Most of the time my dad was crissed as a picket by 9am in the morning, so after mum and dad divorced when I was 15, the very first Christmas we spent was just enjoying having mum sitting with us for the day. We prepared all cold meats and salads and just sat and enjoyed family time with mum. This year my brother is sharing Christmas with us for the first time in 11 years and we are spending the time out with mum and my brother on their farm. I can't wait!!
