okay so I know we are already half way thru and really I have no real excuse for not blogging.
So Christmas has been and gone, the kids like their gifts. Laura got a magazine subscription to Creme and some clothes/PJ's. Alexander got a scooter, some tech deck and clothes/PJ's. Plus the family gift of the basketball hoop and ball. There is a little story to that too, we were looking and mitre 10 had them on special but when Justin went to get one it was to small so the only other place that had them was Kmart but it was alot dearer. So as I was lugging it up to the counter I asked the guy if it was the same as the one on display as it was the height I was after and he didn't really know but said yes it will just have a different picture on the board. So anyway I got it wrapped at the mall and brought it home. When Justin was putting it up it was the wrong height so I had to take it back! when I told them the girl seemed to think they didn't have any taller ones in stock, but then another guy came along and went and found one which happened to be one special so not only did I get a bigger (height) one but I got it for less $$$.
Christmas day was average, Mum and Dad had stayed Christmas eve ( i didn't get to bed until 12:30 and had been up since 3:20 and worked 7-7 at Farmers) and was awake on Christmas Day before anyone else, like I was up at 5:30-6am. we waited until 7am to wake Laura who had told us the night before not to wake her! Even Justin was up and showered before that and she still wasn't happy at us waking her up, sure signs of age!!
We had waffles for breakfast with fresh berries and yogurt and hazelnut spread, yum. Lunch was also at our house with Justin's family here. Everyone just brings a main and a dessert pretty causal affair really. Tea was just us here and I think we had something exciting like toasted sandwiches!!
Boxing Day and we had decided to head away with the Browns to Kurow, kinda last minute but good to get away if only for a few days, since I had to be back at work on Monday. Saturday I spent most of the day laying/sleeping as I felt like crap, sore eyes and just tired. it didn't stop me from hanging out with everyone, we went down with the boat and all the kids went on the biscuit which looked like great fun. I would have had a go if I felt better. I did manage to dip myself in the water after another snooze when we got back to the house. I was fine the next day and although it wasn't as warm as the previous it was still good and I went on the biscuit after Brownie had been. I didn't fall off but I think they were relatively nice to me although I did get airborne for a second or two! Justin even had a go after I had been on. All good fun, shame we had to come home.
