Christmas 2019

We had our family celebration on Boxing Day at our home.
Beautiful festive food and treats galore.......rumballs from DD a Christmas tradition.
No.1 Son a Toblerone tragic was very pleased with his haul.....
Gifts from the youngest generation to the oldest.....Miss E and her fruit cake and Miss C. rocky road....Great Granddad was impressed!

We had remote control car action from the boys....Miss E. kind enough to lend hers for the contest!
Relaxing with icypoles and planning the next lot of mischief lol!
A fun day for all.......
On Christmas day hubby and I relaxed after preparations for yesterday were done and enjoyed a very quiet time.
One of my favourite bits of Christmas music was listened to and enjoyed with a cuppa and shortbread.  Tony O'Connor is no longer with us. I adore his soft instrumental treatment of Christmas classics accompanied by Aussie birdsong and Bush sounds......beautiful!

I am pleased to have another little sewing tin to use when the goodies are gone...thanks Kay xx
Santa bought me another birdbath to help our feathered friends in this heat and a new DVD.....which I also enjoyed watching on Christmas Day.
Rest day today....May even see if I can find my stitching!
Namaste and blessings Michelle xxx
