Christmas is all around


It’s Thursday the 27th of December here in Melbourne, Australia. 30 Degrees celisus and extremly windy. I am just having the last bites of my Christmas Pavlova and sipping on a hot chocolate.

In my current state I feel a sugar coma about to commence, I’m tired, not at all hungry and can’t stop sneezing. The celebrations of Christmas is over but the holiday itself still pushes on.

Since the 20th of December I have been in a whirlwind of family. My Auntie and Uncle are visiting from DC (Washington) which is always a time of excitment and chaos…

It started with dinner at a favourite middle eastern restaurant…then a long trip to my grandparents farm… then to my mother’s house at the beach… by the 23rd –  17 of my family members including myself sat down for an assortment of foods for our Christmas lunch…
by Christmas eve it was just Mum, my brother and myself… and Christmas Day we enjoyed the meal pictured above…

And here I am feeling relieved to spend time with myself… contemplating what the new year is yet to bring while occassionally taking a glimpse at the pile of washing waiting to washed.

“Oh there’s always tomorrow!” I say to myself

But no seriously it really has to be done…

The day itself is over. But as I look out the window or wander through my house.

I see that Christmas really is all around…

Signing off because the sugar coma really is setting in…

PS Do I sound like Hugh Grant in Love Actually??

    Not like Hugh Grant – like the elderly rocker character that sings the song!!! Really enjoyed that lunch with you and Tom too.
