Merry Christmas everyone!

We have had a lovely Christmas day celebration with the family here. Lovely lamb leg on the BBQ and a smoked ham with salad and desserts treats until there were no more room left in the tummy. Luckily, the weather stayed dry so we could sit outside enjoying the delicious food.

I never really get into the Christmas spirit during the summer, but since we have our own house I wanted to decorate a bit inside. We moved most of the decorations we had in Norway, but there it felt like we had heaps of it as the apartment was small. Now, I need more of it!!! We didn't get a Christmas tree this year, but I am considering getting a plastic fantastic Christmas tree when the sale starts (probably started weeks ago)...

Below is some decorations from the house:

Big, old Santa with his friends

The wine mouse has moved over to the penguins and two Santa's.

Hadeland and Kosta Boda Santa's. Always classy.

...and this is the most beautiful decoration I have. Mum has embroidered it.

I am quite impressed by the decorations in shops and streets. Some decorations are special for the summer Christmas, but I think that is quite good as we don't have snow here, so why not fit it in with the summer!

Check out the lovely Pohutukawa (also called NZ Christmas tree). It blossoms around Christmas time and make a natural outdoor decoration. The colors are amazing.

Just a short one from me this time. Have a lovely Christmas time & holiday & Happy New Year!
Back to work again for another couple of days before another lovely long weekend is here.

All the best from us down under
