Christmas time for me is usually a time to reflect on times past, people who are no longer with us (such as my beautiful Mum), happy times with family, friends and neighbours and travels - just to name a few.
Last Sunday afternoon was spent with our fantastic neighbours. We dressed up and celebrated Christmas with a huge lunch, a game of backyard cricket and a few glasses of cheer. A wonderful day. There are no incriminating photos of me attempting to hit a cricket ball. DH thought he had taped it all on his ‘not so smart phone’ but, alas, it did not work - (insert big huge laugh from me here!)
Our hosts, Colin & Julie (Mr & Mrs Claus)
DH dressed up as a Christmas Yobbo. If you don’t know what a yobbo is, it is a belligerent Australian male with a big beer belly who enjoys way too many beers. A yobbo has no dress sense and has very little social etiquette – ha ha ha – sooo unlike my husband really is (apart from the bit about enjoying beer – LOL)!
I dressed as a Christmas tree and luckily it was a cooler than average day because this fabric was very hot and sweaty.
Yesterday I was fortunate to spend a lovely long lunch with two of my wonderful friends who make my world a better place.
Joan on the left, Marleen on the right. Marleen decorates her house beautifully with her Christmas wall hangings and hand made decorations along with other gifts from friends.
Our little granddaughter, Lilian, has just turned 5 years old and we gave her a toy camera – a Barbie one (because she is into Barbie’s at the moment).
It took a few shots of her finger before the real good photos were taken :- )))
Hoping you are also making some memories to reflect on
Until next time………………Dianne.
