Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas to everyone!
We have had a lovely, quiet day at home opening presents, eating seafood, drinking wine and now eating chocolates and drinking cups of tea! The wet weather that was forecast for our area did not come through and we have had a bright, sunny and a very warm day - a perfect Australian Christmas.
I'm now relaxing with my new copy of the BBC edition of Pride and Prejudice on DVD while glancing over at our Christmas tree to admire the gorgeous decorations - especially the Royal Doulton tea cup and teapot given to me by my best friend and my boy - they know me so well!

Sounds like a wonderful day Karen! I love those decorations - what tree doesn't need a tea cup and teapot? A Very Happy Christmas to you and yours!

Glad to hear you had a lovely day! Warmth and sunshine sounds heavenly--could you package some up and send it my way! Enjoy the rest of the holiday!

Karen said...

Thanks Jill - you too!

Hi Frances - it was a lovely day - hope you had the same!

Hi Claire - I love my decorations too - a perfect representation of me I think!

Merry Christmas Karen. It's great the rain stayed away for Christmas, now we just need a miracle at the MCG!

Merry belated Christmas... I miss Australian Christmases and am so glad that this one was beautiful for you.

And the tree decorations are awesome :)

Hi Yvann - I became a little obsessed by Christmas decorations this year I think!
