Christmas Day


Dereck, Grant, Lauren and I with our Christmas gifts!

The Ramsay family came round and spent quite a bit of time in the pool. It was Lesley, Alex, Nicholas, Papi (Dereck's mom), Joanne, Brendon, Kerin, Ryan and Mrs Daye. In the pictures above, Kerin and Ryan are holding up the crackers to show Leanne that they were Winnie the Pooh crackers!

Lunch consisted of cold gammon, roast lamb, potatoe bake, noodle salad, green salad and garlic bread, followed by pudding being trifle, ginger pudding with custard, banana fridge tart, mince pies and fruit squares.

Thereafter we did a secret Santa present swap - we had each drawn a name out of a hat and we had to buy a present for that person. I got a lovely fold up beach chair. We all retired to the lounge where we played a few games of "Buzz". This was a lot of fun.


I couldn't resist putting in this picture of Ryan in the goggles. He put these on, then climbed into the pool on the first step and put his head under the water to look what was there - he was so cute!

Christmas'd out singning off ...

Haven't heard yet what she got, but we put some money in her account to spoil herself and have sent some goodies back with my friend who has just been to SA.
