Merry Christmas

I’m finding it really hard to believe that the last day of school for the year is tomorrow and Christmas is next week. It’s really sprung up on me this year and I feel so unorganised. At least the Christmas tree is up and I think the girls have enough gifts to keep them happy and excited, that’s a start I guess.

Mum is arriving next week to stay for Christmas so it will be lovely to have a guest in the house. Hopefully we’ll find enough to do for the 10 days to keep her occupied. Luckily there are lots of little towns we can visit if she doesn’t mind a long drive to get to them. I’ve driven through Bangalow a couple of times and it looks like a great place for coffee or lunch so that might be our first trip.

Minnie is going well. She’s still barking more than we’d like but I’m trying to gain as much knowledge to help with her training and I think she’s improving. At least I hope she is. Just like Alice and Lucy, she doesn’t listen to me so we are working on that too. We’ve been trying to socialise her with other dogs and she’s responding so well which is a huge relief. I think we’ll keep her after all.

I’m not too sure what we will do in the school holidays. I’m hoping we survive without too many fights. It’s hard when they are the only kids in town. I’ll have to make sure we plan lots of day trips to keep us occupied. We do have 2 weeks back on the Central Coast to break up the long school holiday, we are really looking forward to that. It’s going to be a very rushed 2 weeks but I hope we get to catch up with as many family and friends as possible.

That’s about it from us this week, it’s been a quiet one.

From my family to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year.

Andrew Burgess - Thankyou Kathryn, and the same for you and your family. With all the renovating, school, dance, scouts, piano, and now swimming, stuff before the usual chores, and Mikey’s stuff, Im totally with you on the sneaky Christmas theme. Hope to do better next year. The town exploration sounds exciting. Ive snuck out twice this week to see movies at Ettalong, so this has helped reset the machine and eliminate the monotony! Cheers

admin - Sounds like you’ve been super busy Andrew. There’s always something on when it comes to kids isn’t there? Have you seen any good movies? I haven’t yet found where the closes movie theatre is but I’m hoping to take the girls to see The Trolls during the holidays.

admin - Hey Lois! I have heard of the Bangalow Markets but haven’t yet been. They are on Boxing Day so I might make the trip then. I’ve been to the Channon Markets and Byron Bay Markets and I think a lot of the same stallholders go to all 3 so I imagine they’d be good too. Hope Karen didn’t kill you on the hills!!! I miss having people to ride with. I’ve hardly done any exercise since moving here. Love you xx
