Hi everyone just letting you know that I am back ...yay...maybe...
I will try and put photos of holiday/wedding up soon but at the moment this computer won't let me upload them!!!
I hope everyone had a great christmas. Present wise I am reasonably happy. My mum gave me tickets to two Bell Shakespheare Plays at the Opera House (we go every year). Twelth Night and something else. I really enjoyed Twelth Night last time I saw it performed. She also gave me some new books (I rely on her giving me books each year). They were as follows
* The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver
* The Lost Life by Steven Carroll (and it autographed ...yay)
* Love Song by Alex Miller
* Too much happiness by Alice Munro
all of which look great.
I also got some cds, a glass lizard, bracelet, fudge and a calender from other relatives. And my boyfriend...Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters and something which is arriving in the post but has been delayed...still not shipped yet :( :(
With my Dad's family we donate money to charity instead. So all up we donated $1100 to UNHCR so I am happy with that
My christmas day was spent very quietly (apart from the excited noises and present playing of Kaia (Daria's son)). just relaxing. Watched lots of tv. Played trivia.
