I have my Christmas present early. A beautiful Asus Notebook PC - I actually went to buy a Toshiba, but the salesman at Officeworks recommended this one. The keyboard is gorgeous. It has a full size keyboard and a numeric keypad, which DH and I really love. DH won't need to bring his laptop home now for me to use at night. He is very happy about that.
On Friday I went to Melbourne for the day - not shopping - I actually didn't venture far from the airport. Dear Son graduated as an Aviation Fire and Rescue Fire Fighter and his Dad and I went to his graduation. We were extremely proud of him. He was so glad to finish his training. Our flight home was delayed for FIVE hours, so we were all exhausted by the time we arrived home at midnight!
Dear Daughter had a birthday and Dear Son-in-Law graduated as a Teacher, so it was all happening this weekend.
Dear Grand-daughter is quite unwell with suspected glandular fever. I do hope she is feeling much better soon. She has had a huge year, winning lots of awards and being chosen as Deputy Head Prefect for next year. She really needs a rest.

Yay, I have actually started my Christmas shopping. I know, I'm very naughty this year. I've usually nearly finished by now.
I have decided that we are all too spoilt. No-one really needs anything. Everyone seems to buy whatever they want or need and not have to wait for much any more. Usually I know exactly what I will buy people, but not this year. Anyway, I have made a start. All the littles are nearly finished and I just need to work out what to give my older "kids".
