Well hello there everyone and a very merry Christmas to you all. This year has been so very busy for me. It's the first time in years that I have been working up to Christmas, and I hate to admit it I am not as organised as I used to think I was. I guess it's easy to be organised when you don't work and have ample time to fit everything in.
But finally the tree is decorated, the food bought the gifts wrapped and the food under way. This year we will have a Christmas Eve celebration. That isn't the way over here in Australia. Here we do Christmas on Christmas Day. We are usually preparing on Christmas Eve, either travelling to friends and family or greeting them as they arrive. But we are now among the many who have to share our daughters with other families. Alicia of course has to spend some time with Paul's family so this year, she will come to us on Christmas Eve.
We are going to have baked ham, Creme Brulee and rosemary roasted potatoes.
Adrian has made the Creme Brulee's and they are ready for their crunchy topping tonight. The ham is scored and cloved and ready to be glazed for baking in a few hours. The table is set.
I've opted for a blue theme this year, the poppers and bon bons still need to be put out, and the wine glasses set.
Elle is getting a bright red mini cooper s from us, it's battery operated and goes 4km's an hour. I can't wait to see her scooting round the driveway in it.
Cute or what. Here she is feeding the ducks, well sort of, she ate most of the bread ha ha!!
And of course once again the girls true to form, gave me their best shots, at a recent cousins lunch. Really girls!!!!!
So to you and all of your families, I wish you a very merry Christmas and a brilliant 2013.
Love to you all
