Merry Christmas To All

As we head into the Christmas season I want to wish you all a safe and happy festive season.

This year we have been really busy so we have paired things right back including the tree which is normally a real one that Hubby cuts down.  This year that was too much work so we opted for a bunch of fallen gum tree branches.

There is now a grand total of 4 gifts below the tree. One for my brother in law, one for our dog Jessie, one for my Mother in Law and one for my best friend.  We do not go crazy with the gifts.  My family are in NZ so we do not buy for them, and with Hubby's family we pick names out of the hat and all buy for one person.  My best friend and I buy for each other and Hubby and I do not buy each other gifts (although Santa usually leaves us a packet of our favorite chocolate in our stockings) as we choose to do something together instead.

This year we are spending the week following Christmas at the Woodford Folk Festival.
We live nearby and we are really looking forward to seeing the huge range of performers, there will be everything from circus and burlesque, comedy and educational speakers to music from Australia and around the world.
I will be reporting back on some of the great stuff we see and am looking forward to sharing it with you.

Do you have anything planned for after Christmas?


  1. Wishing you and hubby a happy and relaxing Christmas. A quiet one here on the back deck with some bevvies and mangoes along with the usual fare. All the best for 2014 too.

  2. I love the simple tree and let's face it it still says Christmas. Have a safe and happy Christmas and look forward to reading your blog again next year. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane, Australia

  3. Hope you have a lovely relaxing break. Enjoy Woodford! cheers Wendy
