Happy New Year

January 8th, 2012 No comments

Hello and Happy 2012! Hope you had a wonderful festive season, whatever you were celebrating.

We went the whole hog when decorating this year as we had our lovely niece and nephew here with us and their mother, Al’s sister Samantha of course. The place looks so bare without the twinkly lights and decorations now we’ve taken them down.

So that I can remember where everything goes to get the same effect next year, I’ve taken some photos of our sitting room. You can click to enlarge:

T’was the night before Christmas…

December 28th, 2011 No comments

It’s been a different kind of Christmas this year. Normally it’s just Al and I and my parents. This year we have Al’s sister Samantha and her two children, our nephew and niece, Tyler and Marci here. We were nervous about having children around but it was wonderful to have them here. They made our Christmas really special. There were a lot more presents under the tree this year and Santa and his reindeer got a warmer welcome than normal.

Here they are full of sweets and gingerbread:

Here they are on Christmas day, utterly exhausted after all of the excitement:

Not the best photo I know, but here is Trudi delivering her traditional Christmas message. Special mention was given to her favourite Aunties, Annie and Bertje for their Summer Lovin’. Merry Christmas everyone.
