christmas day evening

christmas e

Christmas for me involves lots (and lots and lots) of days of celebrating with family. We started on Christmas Eve day – the morning – and were home for Boxing Day. No sales for us though. Just some much needed sleep.

It was absolutely lovely, and, after all the build up, even more enjoyable than I had hoped. These are from our Christmas Day's evening, a much smaller party than Christmas Eve's one, with just eleven of us. Fried cheese (I can't say its name, never mind spell it; I must get it written down for me) with vanilla-and-pepper figs is delicious. Yum.

We also had terrible storms on Christmas Day. We were lucky and escaped with just two leaks in our roof and, magically, thankfully, no broken windows. We then ended up driving through the storm – well, I suppose it was a white Christmas of sorts, although I don't think hail stones were quite what were in mind! Not everyone was as lucky as us. I do hope you and your homes are all ok.

I also hope you've had a wonderful few days, too! x

Yikes! Scary weather is terrible! We had a tornado while I was a work last year and a tree fell on the building and made a massive hole in the roof and rain water was poring in and we had to scramble to move all of the books (I'm a librarian) and it was a miserable mess. Glad you had a nice holiday :)

I can't believe you guys had a storm! We had a nice quiet weekend at my boyfriends. But it felt more like an ordinary day rather than Christmas. The only thing that was exiting was when we opened our gifts on Christmas eve at 7am!, but that still didn't last long. Soon after we spend the whole weekend just sitting around, playing wii, or watching tv. No decorations or anything! I guess even though you guys had a storm, I still had less of a wonderful Christmas. It was fun and stuff but it wasn't Christmas. Next year, I am spending Christmas at my house. It's always filled with big trees and decorations! Hope you had a magical time and let us know about that cheese!

That storm was so typically Melbourne....It was only a couple of days before I was telling some guy from Chicago (contracting at my work) that in Melbourne you can expect hail in the middle of summer.....and lo and behold, we have quite the example. I hope he had a fun Australian Christmas! haha.

Lucky you guys were safe and came out of it with little damage. Does Babycat get a bit scared of the hail? Our kitties didn't know what was happening at all.
