it is always so hard for me to get in the christmas spirit down under. i try by decorating the house a bit and wrapping little gifts early; i even made a stocking for
the grinch chris this year. when the actual morning arrives, i put bailey's in my coffee just like at home...but it's usually super hot here, sunshiny (gasp!) and it's just not the same. this year was gloomy, dark, stormy, cold and wet- i could not have asked for more on the day really, unless snow was a possibility in Sydney. i hope you all had a very merry christmas. i am really looking forward to the new year- this past year was one of the best yet (more on that in a later post)- topping it is going to be tricky and so exciting!
