A Contented Christmas : )

Change is as good as medicine, maybe better. Except when you go on holiday and your body has a distress freak out and you end up with laryngitis, and your look like swamp thing (me at the moment) but back to my point…my Blog layout. It has changed. If you hate it let me know otherwise the change is here to stay…until I get bored again.


Christmas Eve was fantastic! We made it to Shanyn's without any major catastrophe and were amazed at how much trouble she went too – the table, the food, decorations, everything – I was super impressed – all of that on the hottest day ever. Ever. Ever!


Well, I ate Gammon like a pig, Chicken, Potatoes…you name it and I ate it. Pudding was the most delicious Chocolate mousse ever. Ever. Ever! After opening presents we headed home quite late and were all passed out by midnight.


Christmas Day… wow. We had originally planned on a relaxed 9am present opening but with a child in the house we managed to eek our way to 7am.

My Gran, Mom, Step-Dad, Husband, Daughter and Baby all filled our lounge with ripping paper, squeals of delight and general chaos until the presents were opened. Savanna is in heaven!

We all went to a lovely Church service and then spent the day resting and even fitted in a long cat nap (as a family of four we all seem to sleep at the same time in the afternoon – what a blessing!) and in the afternoon we had a stunning, tasty chilled out braai with my Mom and Step-Dad at their place (next door) all together it was one of the nicest Christmas days.


Boxing Day was also amazing; we were spoiled with an incredible lunch at my Aunt Terri and Uncle Leigh's home in Hawaan Forest Estate. The food was delish! I am so heavy! Kelsey slept the whole way (what a star) and Savanna was an angel.


This is one of the nicest Festive Seasons we have ever had. Blessed our socks off!


Hope that your New Years Eve celebrations are safe.
