Christmas day with my husband, son and mother.

on December 25, 2013

Ants, Ming, Meg and me.


Thanks, Ma, for providing the turkey and the massive pavlova, and enabling us all to have a very cruisy day. Thanks, weather, for not being too hot. Thanks, God, for making today’s church service interesting and down-to-earth. Thanks, Anthony, for squeezing my hand on our way back to the nursing home and wiping my unexpected tears. Thanks, Ming, for being almost okay post-op. and for your humour. Thanks, extended family, for our wonderful night at Meg’s at Christmas Eve, my niece and husband’s homecoming, my brother’s homecoming (just last night!) Oh the list is getting too long so … to be continued ha!

    Sounds like you have a great time with all your family. Must be nice to have Christmas in a warm, sunny country instead of a cold, dark one.

    Severe weather was forecast in the Scotland in Christmas Eve but the hurricane winds never materialised and they were just strong winds.

  13. Sounds like you had a bloody great day
