did santa bring you something nice?

i hope so. we had a lovely day and i was spoilt by the family. silk kaftan, bracelet made out of a silver fork (i know it sounds a bit strange, but it's really nice), painting, and a praying monk statue. all very lovely. we had a lovely lunch and the only fly in the ointment was that my sister had to go back to wallaroo that night. big trip for her and was really great that she was able to come down. kids are on holidays and so am i. at least for a week. i have plans of course but so far i haven't really done much. i'm going to wallaroo wednesday. all good. i hope you had a lovely day too and are enjoying this holiday period. pic is of the girls. sister, dil, daughter and g/daughter.

i have to work today

i spent yesterday at home. couldn't be bothered going anywhere. feel a bit off but nothing serious. i want to purchase a new overlocker. if you saw the one i have it's practically an antique and dammit i deserve a new one. i got a great deal but have to wonder if i'll use it very much. i'll get it on thursday. i had to buy an indoor antenna for the tv downstairs the other day coz i couldn't get sbs or the local adelaide channel. the signal would come and go. might be the weather. the one upstairs is fine. weather here is damp and cool atm. i hope it stays that way for a little while yet. kids are coming for christmas tea. my sister is coming down too so that will be nice. i am downsizing presents this year. only one each. except my sister and the g/kids. :( i'm going quite well with the carbs except that yesterday i ate some chocolates. very nice they were too. i've been going through my wardrobe and altering clothes that don't fit. all good
