ugh - i feel like i'm dragging the chain a bit, but i'm getting there!
Christmas Eve was quite an emotional day for me, but i think once i journal my thoughts and work on that particular page, i'll really feel like i'm in the home stretch
you might not be able to tell from this pic, but my hair had LILAC streaks in it
i loved it!
it was great to have my parents here this Christmas
they stayed in their home town last Christmas and they hadn't been to stay during the year
those rum bottles had dust on them!
i had a few photos i wanted to use for this day, so i made a concertina fold out thingee
this is what it looks like folded up
then folded out
then the reverse side folded out
my eldest and her partner arrived from Auckland later the same day
our house suddenly became [wonderfully] full!
