On the First day of Christmas...
I bought the holly..
constructed a Yule Log..
baked a Glazed Ham..
made a stocking for Little Aussie..
made more stockings for Sydneysider son and Irish Lass..
wore my new white linen, sparkled it up with an angel pin, rhinestone art deco earrings and bracelet, half price at the Mall...
went to church and sang 'Joy to the World, the Lord Has Come!'
Later that night, Santa came....
On Christmas morn, Little Aussie arrived - and after exchanging Greetings, said in his best, and most polite tone "I was hoping I might find a present under the tree" ..
and lo, so he did!
loved his little sleepover bed..
and his Iron Man suit
Mr C spoilt me with a silk kimono gown from The Happiness Place..
and among other goodies, Germaine Greer's latest book..
The young ones gave me this to read - an excellent choice!
my favourite spritz..
and some seriously good health foods..
to counteract this:
Later that day, it was so humid, I wore (shock, horror) Shorts!
In Queensland, there is no upper age limit to being cool in the Summer..
and so the Grandparents were Very Happy!
