Judging from my blog reading the last few days it sounds like you have all survived the "silly season" fairly well. I know we all ate and drank a bit too much, but that was to be expected.
We had a lovely Christmas with family. I went to see my three littles and DD and DS-in-law early on Christmas morning. Nothing like the happiness on childrens' faces when they open their presents is there?! I only stayed a short while and we went back there later for a lovely tea and drinks.
My Dear Son and his partner stayed here on Christmas Eve and for breakfast on Christmas Day. We were all a bit sad though as they were preparing to move States! They have moved to the Sunshine Coast in Queensland! They have been wanting to try a "seachange" for a while and the opportunity came up, so they grabbed it. I hope they are happy. He told me not to be sad, just think of it as a new holiday destination. It is SO far away though! I know he is 29, but he is still my little boy! I made him "Auntie's Chocolate Cake" with little cars around the edge.
Dear Daughter said, "you still have us" and I say thank goodness for that. I would HATE them to move too!!!
Anyway, they are keeping in touch. They took their car and have spent a few days visiting friends in Canberra and Newcastle on the way. I had a call from him yesterday and they have arrived safely and are in their new house (albeit with no furniture except a blow-up mattress, TV, toaster and kettle until all their wordly goods arrive in three days!).
I have been keeping myself busy sewing. DH gave me a new sewing machine for Christmas. More about that another day......
