Wishing you all out there across the world a blessed Christmas.
My 'big' girl', Rebecca, was Christmas Day baby at North Shore Hospital, Auckland, 29 years ago tomorrow. That means she was the first one born on Christmas Day (3.25am actually). Tomorrow morning we celebrate her birthday in the morning with the most delicious breakfast and birthday presents for her.
Then we prepare the food for a late lunch. While that is cooking, we open Christmas presents. We are hoping for a lovely day tomorrow, the weather forecast is for 22 deg. C, which if correct, will be the finest and warmest Christmas Day we have had in this house - we may even get to eat outdoors on the deck, play petanque, be serenaded by the chooks and lambs!
Time to send the 'children' off to bed, fill the stockings and get the gifts under the tree.
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"
(from: Twas The Night Before Christmas Poem by Clement Moore 1779 - 1863)
