Merry Christmas



We had a lovely Christmas shindig/street party at the neighbours house yesterday. We've been neighbours for thirteen years, and it's only been this year that I have socialised with them. They are lovely people and made us feel so welcome.

  

 

Santa dropped in, with goodies for the kids.






Summer charmed the pants of everyone when she sang Jingle Bells with another little girl. She has stage presence apparently. It was uber cute.


The past week and first week of the school holidays was a scorcher. Except for yesterday, we'd been at the swimming lake everyday! We are so lucky to have this awesome asset in our town.

We are as organised as we are ever going to be for Christmas. I have the urge to bake, but just seriously cannot be bothered! I am so looking forward to lunch at Mum's with all the family. Especially my brother who will be home in the next couple of days after his kidney transplant. We have so much to cherish and be thankful for this year.

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas xx

  2. We have a pretty boring street and every year I swear I am going to organise something and then I just get too busy.
