Christmas day is over.

Christmas is over for another year. It was a wonderful day, fun, exciting and absolutely exhausting. Every year, the day after the event, I make a promise to myself not to do it again the next year… but time erases the amount of time and energy needed and we do it all over again, and again and again.

It’s a bit like having a baby really. The ultimate benefits outweigh  the pain.!!!!

The family arrived one by one, each  laden with goodies to share during the day.

Presents were placed under the tree and the small grandchildren could hardly contain themselves with excitement

The temperature was in the low 80’s and under a clear skyDsc07594 we shared a traditional Christmas Dinner.

The parrots and Kookaburras, joined in the Christmas chorus as the boys played cricket for several hours on the back block..

I spotted a possum watching us from the branches above in the evening and and Rachael saw a rather large Koala…. so I guess you can’t get more Australian than that.

The evening meal saw more friends and relatives arrive and the the tables were laden with seafood and salad…

Today, we just relaxed with friends, we sat in the garden and finished off the rest of the prawns and Christmas pudding….

I’ll take another day off and then back to work on some serious stuff….

So I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
