I was a bit remiss on Christmas day, didn't take a single photo! MR and I spent it out in the bush with his family before driving back Christmas night so I could drop him at the airport at 5am on Boxing Day to head back to work. We had a lovely day catching up with extended family we don't see very often and eating plenty of yummy food. Somehow I managed to not overeat, we'll put that down to the sweltering 39 degree weather. As to my side of the family, we don't really do extended family things so we had lunch with Dad and my sister on the 23rd and my sister and I are doing a high tea Christmas meal with Mum tomorrow evening.
The weather is fairly dreadful here at the moment - forecast for 39-41 all week in fact! Thankfully I realised it's late night shopping tonight so I'll head out in a couple of hours once it has cooled down a tad to pick up a bit of food and have a quick look at some of the sales.
Merry Christmas everyone, I hope you had a happy and safe one with plenty of yummies on your table. x
