I hope you have enjoyed your Christmas day with family and friends if you are in Australia or are getting ready to do just that if you are elsewhere in the world!
I just wanted to give you a quick update on how we survived our frugal Christmas Day!!
You would all know that I’ve been a little freaked out about how the kids would cope without an enormous pile of gifts under (our imaginery) Christmas tree! No big parcels, no little parcels, no christmas stockings and no surprise family gift from Santa this year…….
Well, I am pleased to report, that all went well!! Jono was up early to claim his book and the girls slept late as there was no need to get up early! Kate even wrote on facebook that she wasn’t appearing until lunch was served! Brittney, of course was thrilled with her new socks!!!
It was a nice relaxed day with lots of laughs and way too much food – food we will be eating for the next week or so.
Gert is back out on the road tomorrow and I have two more days off from work to get some serious travel planning done. I’ve bought a few extra packing boxes to start getting rid of the last of the stuff we needed to keep out of storage and some serious backpack loading will be happening. I think it’s time to separate out the clothes I’m taking and stop wearing them. Don’t worry – I have plenty of other clothes to wear so there’ll be no naked photos to scar you all for life!!
Here’s some pics of our Christmas Day food. Check out those big fat prawns – we’ll be eating the leftovers for breakfast tomorrow!!
And the Pavlova – ohmogosh it was good!! And almost Weight Watchers approved!!
I wonder what we’ll be eating for Christmas next year?
