How did your Christmas Day pan out? Mine was spent at this lovely old house on the NSW South Coast, surrounded by piles of pressies and happy faces.
The eldest was totally stoked with her life-sized tiger and the youngest didn’t grumble TOO much about not getting a life-sized baby giraffe.
My Doctor Who gingerbread Tardis was gobbled up. Yuuuuum. And lunch was an incredible feast created by my brother-in-law with roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, roast pork loin, roast potatoes, salads, ham, turkey, prawns …
I didn’t lift a finger … Except to raise a fork to my mouth repeatedly.
After lunch and so many hugs, I hit the road back to Sydney. Things got pretty stormy both outside and inside the car as I drove away. Adele’s 21 album possibly wasn’t THE best choice for the car stereo.
Three hours later I was home to put the bins out, then I got back in the car and headed north for some Moët & sympathy.
Meanwhile, here’s an incomplete selection of pics of how the stars celebrated Christmas. The internet connection is shite in the back of beyond and I’ve given up in frustration.
PS The pic above shows the youngest testing out her cousin’s new canoe in the pool. As you do.
