We have had the most enjoyable Christmas in years!
We spent CHristmas Eve with our son and his family; with my Mother In Law and my husband's 93 year old grandmother in attendance-lovely BBQ meal and the 3 grandsons had a ball with the minimum of blood and tears!
Then our middle child became engaged on Christmas Eve to her partner of 6.5 years-they are also expecting their first child in April.
Christmas morning we catered for 11 friends and family for breakfast before the 3 hr drive to my mother's house for CHristmas tea. At her place were my brother & his 2 daughters, my stepbrother together with his wife & two boys-plus our son and his family drove up; as did our daughter and her new fiance!
With 7 children aged 8 & under it was a blissful day!
Since arriving home on Boxing Day we have been busily moving soil to backfill around the new concrete-labourious but satisfying!
Today I have harvested half a kilo of beans-plus I pulled up one of the potato plants and we are having fresh potatos with lunch!
Life is Good!
