Even though I’ve had the last week off I haven’t had much time to write here. I’ve been busy socialising and cleaning out kitchen cupboards. What an achievement, being able to open my plastics cupboard without taking a deep breath every time because something is bound to fall out.
Taking a little step back, we had a lovely christmas. We spent Christmas Eve with The Surfer’s kids and his parents and worked out that we needed to save some presents to open in the morning. This was the year that JJ finally admitted that he knows I have been Santa so I don’t need to try and keep up that pretence any longer. I was never any good at remembering what Santa gave him or what I gave him so it’s quite a relief.
After we dropped the kids off at their mum’s we proceeded to my sister’s place in the Kombi and spent two days there. It was the first time The Surfer has met my sister and it all went very well.
It was nice to finally relax after the big buildup to Christmas and apart from cleaning out cupboards that’s pretty much what I’ve been doing since.
I’ve still got two weeks of my holidays left and plan to make the most of them by going away and relaxing some more.
I’ll be out of action here for another week or so. I hope you all had a great Christmas and have a fantastic year in 2011.
