Merry Christmas

Christmas was its usual quiet self in our house,with just the four of us. The weather was much cooler and very pleasant - we even had a sprinkle or two of rain in the afternoon. In the morning, presents were handed out ... I'm not sure about the hat. I don't think it's Christmas related.

Crackers were pulled at the lunch ... which was prawns and salad. The prawns featured again at dinner (hot garlic) with scallops, and rice paper rolls which were number two son's pick. He likes them and even better he likes making them, and needs minimal assistance. We had chocolate covered cherries for dessert, and some very good King Island brie for a pre-bed snack. All delicious, and no leftovers at all.

Other than that we watched our new Dr Who DVDs  - read our new books - built our new lego. One of us had a nap and did some sewing ... others went for a walk up to the trig point. A bottle or two of red sparkling wine may have also featured.


  1. it looks like you had a nice Christmas with your family. those prawns are huge! the boys look happy. glad you got some time to sew. the only sewing it did today was to repair a pair of my son's slacks.

  2. That looks lovely. Have you no relations, though? Until recently we had Christmas with 13 or 14... all change now. It was certainly more restful yesterday with just four and two small children (yes, not THAT restful...) but I miss the way it was.

    Anyway, glad you had a nice time.
