a merry Christmas to all...
So, to see the sun and some blue sky today is glorious. We had a good day last weekend with the family together. The rain held off, although it was very grey all day. We didn't get to the beach but enjoyed a meal together and then the grandchildren played backyard cricket. They used Master Six's set with tiny stumps and a small wicket. No one suggested backyard cricket, I think this might be a genetic trait in Aussie kids! LOL. The game just happened.
I'll be at home by myself tomorrow. Don't feel sorry for me, this is a conscious decision I have made with no pressure on me. Both sons with children asked me to lunch, but both are going out mid-afternoon. Neither place is easy to get to by public transport on a public holiday, especially for just a short time frame. Other son is away for several days. I'm happy to be here, I have prawns and other food and drink. I will have a quiet day and think about the get together last weekend.
Church will be at 9:30 tomorrow and I'm planning to get to that. I'd go to the midnight service tonight too if I still lived with son and DIL a few minutes walk from the church.
On Monday, friend and I were going to have lunch or dinner. We hadn't made up our minds. He rang the other day and we are going to friends of his for lunch and dinner. I haven't seen these friends for a couple of years and will be glad to catch up. Lovely people, easy to talk to and we all have a lot in common. They live in the Blue Mountains so it will be enjoyable there too.
My brother and sister both were impressed with the tapestries I had framed for them. I'm glad of that.
Have a great time everyone and I'll be back in a few days.
