We had a gorgeous Christmas, nothing beats waking up to an excited child yelling “Santa’s been here, Santa’s been here!”. We were all spoilt with lovely presents, delicious food and wonderful company. So very lucky!
We were away from home from late morning, so when we heard about the huge storms we were very nervous about what we might be getting home to. Thommo took us the long way home and thankfully we managed to avoid the worst of it on the way home, we hit about 30 seconds of heavy heavy rain which was scary but we turned off soon after and drove away from it. And all the worry was for nothing, no damage at home!
The tree has been packed away for another year, although the lounge room is still littered with toys, stray bits of wrapping paper (I’m sure it breeds, I throw it out and more appears) and Iea/flat pack detritus. It’ll get back to normal. One day.
