Merry Christmas ...

I hope everyone had wonderful Christmas celebrations with their family and friends.

We had a fantastic time starting the day opening our presents ... now this is quite unnatural for us to open presents on Christmas Day because our ancestry is Dutch and we've always had a Christmas dinner and present opening ceremony on Christmas Eve, but as my parents stayed in Sydney this year, we decided it would be nicer for my niece and nephew to open their presents when they wake up on Christmas Day.  We went and visited friends for a little while around lunch time and finished the day with a turkey, ham, potato and salmon salad feast that finished off with a divine trifle ... oh, and a few too many wines.


"Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time."
