Merry Christmas!

Christmas day is well and truely over here in Australia - it's now 'Boxing Day' :) Had a fantastic day, my 2 boys & my niece (daughter of Kez) & her bf came over for lunch - delish!

A post isn't a post unless there is a photo LOL Below is a gorgeous gift Kez made for me - so much detail - I just love it!  Even the box it all came in was hand made! Thank you! xxx

I bought this little fibre optic tree for $2 at KMart - thought I'd take a pic - so cute!

My gifts were mostly about mini'ing!  This is a tool chest on wheels (like a travel bag) for all my dremel bits!

2 craft totes from my parents :) They will be SO useful!

The big one opens up into sections with pockets

Caliper from my younger Son :) This also will be very very handy!

The upside-down fairy strikes again.. no matter how many times I try to get it the right way up.. it ends up like this! Oh well.. this is from my niece! <3 Dremel stuff!

I was very proud of my first ever attempt at cooking a turkey - sooo good!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

Things that make you go hmmm.....

LOL ok.. false heading.. perhaps.  I'm still around.. and working on my project.. but because it's a bit of a surprise.. I'm not going to show any more pics for a little bit.. :) Been doing bits here and there, but of course with Christmas on the way, my job is keeping me really busy.

Monday (yesterday to me) was SOOO busy, everyone must have decided last weekend that Christmas cards needed to go out!! We are getting SO many! But.. ordinary postie mail delivery isn't where the company money is at.. seems that everyone is shopping online.  The parcel load is insane!

Thankfully, my job doesn't involve either of these things at the moment, however I work with mail redirections and customer complaints primarily - oh wow.. they're coming in thick and fast!! Yes.. people are going away for Christmas.. OR moving house (that reminds me.. got a place i need to look up with a massive garage!).  Keeping me busy but at least *I* get to come home early.. unlike the posties who are working very very long days in any weather.

Don't forget to tip your postman for Christmas!!! they're not paid a huge wage.. they deliver every single day :)

My tree is finally up and decorated and I have the Xmas club savings voucher for Xmas lunch - it's looking good so far :)

Happy silly season!!
