Well Christmas has come and gone, and all of a sudden it is the New Year. Where did that week go. I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year, and may your year be better than the one just gone.
I have been extremely slack and have not done any scrapping or taken any photos of note. I only took a few pics on Christmas day, the phone seemed to be plastered to my ear most of the morning, and I find it pretty hard to take pics one handed. Oh, well the girls didn't mind not having the camera shoved in their faces for hours.
We had a great Christmas Day. Mum and Dad arrived the day before, and one of my four brothers and his fiance arrived in time to have Chrissy lunch with us, seems like all we did was eat all day. We did manage to fit in a swim for the girls and a climb over the rocks on the headland. We found some great things in some of the rock-pools.
Stephen and Sharon stayed Chrissy night, and left the next day, then one of my other brothers turned up on the Sat with more family. We had tent city out in the paddock for a couple of days. There were 12 of us here for awhile. It sure is great seeing family, we sure don't see enough of any of them. Tent city was packed away yesterday, and we lost some of our visitors, Mum and Dad will still be here for another couple of days.
We tried to stay awake for the coming of the New Year last night, not as young as we used to be I am afraid, we could not make it past 11pm. The fireworks in town woke us up at midnight though. The trees across the road blocked most of the action though so I didn't even drag myself out of bed. That is about 3 or 4 years in a row that we have slept the New Year in.
That is enough rambling for me for the night, I will try to do something more constructive in the next few days. We have been a bit busier at the shop, so I don't get to take my scrapping with me anymore. I will just have to find the time to do some at home. With so many visitors I have not been able to bury my kitchen table like I usually do, and the computer desk has been covered with all sorts of stuff, it seems to be the place for miscellaneous junk at the moment.

wow! you seem to have the opposite chrissy to us the victorians stayed at home this year and Karen had lunch with the in-laws so that left just me and mine for xmas lunch at ma's. Tell Tiff the cat's name is just puss but crazy cat sounds like a great name, or rat cat is another name we call him... he is pretty crazy likes to drink straight from the tap in the bathroom and it comes in at night so it does the rounds of the beds...
