A Minimalist Christmas

Yep! That's what it is, a very minimalistic Christmas. Our two boys are overseas and our usual open house Christmas breakfast is cancelled due to the relocation operation to the country. I'm sure we will get our festive mojo back next year when we move into our (very) new home.

Having said that, I had my work breakup, we celebrated a friend's 60th birthday today and had Sue's brother and sister with respective spouses around for gift giving, eating and drinking and lots of laughter. The festive mojo is still lurking in the background.

Tomorrow My daughter Carly, her partner Sharn and Sharn's parents from the Gold Coast QLD join us for Christmas Lunch. It will be a great day.

So that is what I call our minimalistic Christmas (check out the Chrissy tree - its absolutely anorexic) for 2015. Sue and I wish our followers a very, very enjoyable and safe festive season and good health for 2016. If you can achieve both those goals, you will be very rich.

Thank you for reading whoever you may be out there.

    What is that pier facility, at the very top of your blog?

    1. It was the Mentone Pier - I have other photos of it before it was demolished.

  3. A Happy Christmas doesn't have to be an excess of everything. It means spending time with friends or family, either physically or in your heart.

    Best wishes for 2016 and the challenges and opportunities that come with it.

    1. Currently the winds are blowing the trees wildly so it may just be an indoors day with the temperature in the 30s. Thank you for your good wishes and the same from us to you both. May see you next October.
