I hope you had a happy day too. I'm looking forward to that after Christmas feeling, hopefully some lovely days with the kids and Mark, swimming, making things, gardening, cooking, all the things I love. I'm finding myself going all vague and easily distracted so I haven't been blogging as much as usual. It's harder to find that quiet space lately - this is something I find a bit challenging about school holidays! But I'm trying to just go with the flow. One of my aims for the holidays is to have some special time with each of the kids, and Mark. Do you have any holiday plans? Take care lovelies, see you soon xo

Did you have a merry Christmas?
Did your kids wake up super early and hang out near the tree eying off presents? Ours did.
After breakfast we headed down to Hepburn to spend the day with mum and our extended family. We don't see some of them very much so it was fantastic to catch up.
Mum's place wasn't quite big enough for all 27 people so we set up a marquee outside and had a delicious lunch, champagne and fun!
The best thing about Christmas, for me, is the celebration of family.
Being together, sharing, having a laugh, chatting, hearing the news, eating, being silly,
dogs and all.
Our kids got to hang out with their cousins, it didn't seem to bother Bill that he was the only boy out of ten kids!
It was great to see my dad who I haven't caught up with for a long time, and his partner Margaret, and of course Tilly the Jack Russell!
( is Mark getting told off in the background?)
Two more sweeties, aren't they cute?
