While friends in the Northern Hemisphere are enjoying their White Christmases, we here down in Australia have been making the most of a beautiful and well deserved Summer Christmas, and loving it. x

Christmas this year was nice. Lindsay and I spent Christmas Eve catching up with some of our best friends. We went to his parents' place for lunch. Lindsay's Mum bought the best bonbons; each one contained a whistle numbered 1-8, and each played different notes. The pack came with a sheet of music and a conductor stick. I was the conductor. We had such a lot of fun with our band after lunch!
I went home to my fams in the afternoon for present opening.My favourite pressies were my record player from Lindsay, a red ukulele from my parents, and a reindeer print from my brother and SIL. Christmas night was spent with family and friends at home, with a big festive dinner for twelve.
Boxing Day was the best! The sun came out and we spent the day dipping in and out of the pool -- just exactly the way as every Aussie knows it should be.
Have you thought of any resolutions for 2014? I have two, and they're both related to FOOD! But I'll keep them under my hat til the 1st of Jan. Til then, keep enjoying your snow and swims. x
