We needed an outing, so I took the boys to a little town 50 minutes south of Canberra towards the Snowy Mountains. Not for the scenery; for pancakes and the world-renowned (well, maybe not really) Bredbo Christmas Barn. There's an enthusiastic Christmas lady who has a truly astonishing very large shop filled with Christmas things. It's all very well designed and laid out and there are some lovely things but my goodness you get a little bit crazy in there after a while. It's hard to describe, like some overwhelming Christmassy fever. This picture doesn't do it at all justice - it is overwhelming.
The boys enjoyed it and we all picked out a Christmas decoration to add to our motley collection. It took a while, so much choice! And one polar bear that we couldn't leave behind. We're going to nestle him into the tree so he's just poking out.
