Merry Christmas to those in the Northern Hemisphere!
It is Boxing Day here in Australia, which means a well-earned rest for some of us but others,it means flocking to the shopping malls for the annual post Christmas sales. Quite frankly, I couldn’t think of anything worse. The thought of being in the middle of a stampede to secure a bargain is just too much, no matter how good the deal is!
We had a beautiful day yesterday, which began early, when Christmas sms greetings began coming through and then phone calls from various friends and relatives.After a leisurely breakfast and opening gifts, we began to prepare for lunch. As is tradition here, we did not eat until about 15:00 and continued until the early evening. It was a lovely day and everything went well. Great company, good food, beautiful gifts and plenty of laughter. I think the lights were finally turned out here at 04:00( this morning)!
The remainder of today is going to be very lazy, with the possibility of a sleep this afternoon. 🙂
