Ho Ho Ho

Happy Holidays everyone!

Apologies for missing out a week last say it's been hectic is putting it midly! But, with the help of my faithful taxi driver (my wonderful husband), I've managed to organise my girls for the school holidays, complete all my Christmas shopping and do all the Christmas baking (there's not a lot left!).

Christmas biscuits prior to icing and hanging!

Ok, great news first....after winning the Senior Victrix Ludorum at school prizegiving,  my eldest is also a Prefect for 2012! She has had such an amazing year, we are such proud parents

Caitlin (on the left) and her friend Taylor, both in Grade 6 winning the Victrix....they got the most points at the school sports day! 

Two weekends ago, we had our Nipper Christmas party. Everyone was invited...there were presents for every child that was coming, including the Hokisa children (our local orphanage for Aids children) and Father Christmas arrived by sea, accompanied by two elves! He then handed out presents, we had a stunning hot meal with mince pies for dessert! I decided to do something different, seeing as it was a party, and created Christmas crutches...

My Christmas crutches!

The best news, however, is that I ditched my crutches last week Monday and today was told by the physio that I can get rid of the moonboot as well!! I still have a heel support inside my takkies (sneakers for my overseas friends), but at least I can walk around, even if it is rather slowly! 

I'd like to wish all my friends, near and far, a very Merry Christmas! May your Festive Season be special for you and your family and friends. If you're travelling, travel safely, if you're staying at home, have a wonderful rest. All the best for 2012, may you create new things, explore new places and start a whole new creative adventure!

Much love
