We are gearing up for a relaxed Christmas this year. The Madex clan are coming to our place Christmas Day for prawns, lamb shoulder, spuds and salad. Dad is bringing the Christmas pud. Yum. Then Boxing Day we celebrate with my hubby's side of the family - his sister is hosting this year. They're a big family and we rotate around the hosting. Hosts do meat and what not. Everyone else brings a salad and dessert so we always have a big smorgasbord of yummy things. Fortunately his Sydney sister came down a few weeks earlier to stay with family so we can still all get together.
Sending out a hug to anyone who has had to switch plans at the last minute and who can't be together in person with loved ones. The fatigue for change has well and truly set in hasn't it. We are thinking of all those affected.
I really should be having a last minute blitz of cleaning around the house - those cleaning elves haven't visited - but I think I'm having more of a 'find us as we are' vibe this year. I hope any Christmas preparations on your list are all going well and wish you all the best for a festive week.
Take care, Sue
