Christmas is Over

What a whirlwind Christmas is haha. It's all over now. I feel like a big pig after 2 Christmas meals yesterday and today brunch with a girlfriend ... christmas leftovers (seafood chowder, crumbed mussels and home smoked salmon on toast).. oh It was so delicious!! Christmas day was so full on with my four grandies but I have been so spoilt this year. I got wicked pressies. Nette gave me some Estelle Lauder 8 hour cream and hand cream and $$$$$ towards symposium in EAster 09. Haylee gave me some wools and hand dyed yarns and a neat sewing box within a box within a box.

Isn' it so cool. I can't wait to load it up with my bits and pieces.

My grandson bought me a beautiful Santa globe musical ornament. He bought it with his own money (8 yrs old) It is so precious.

Well, off to bed. It's been tiring this year, travelling, long days. I am so glad to be home and having a few days to potter around. My Uncle looks better than he did and he seems okay. Keeping himself busy and lots of friends around. Tomorrow a skip bin arrives and I'm going to tidy up my unloved garden. I've only been home about 9 weeks since Easter and the weeds have gone nuts! Will take some before and after photos tomorrow.

Nite everyone and Happy New Year coming up.
