Merry Christmas  everyone.  What a great day we had.  We talked, opened presents, ate, relaxed, ate again and played with the pressies.  The kids loved all the presents they got.  It's kept them very busy and quiet.  Sorry no photos I'm still waiting on my brother to send them to me.  So this one will have to do.

New Years Eve was spent at home on the couch I was too sick to go out (story below) and the kids and hubby played all the games they got for Christmas.  Scrabble, Monopoly and Cluedo they had a great time.  At 12.00 we went outside to watch the fireworks that were in our street.  I hope you all had a happy and safe one.

We were supposed to go away to the beach house for a few weeks but I came down with a virus the Sunday after Christmas and by Wednesday I felt like I'd been hit by a bus so I went to see the doctor who informed me that I had a chest and throat infection.  I got some drugs which really didn't help that much I'm still feeling pretty crappy so I went to see him again today and he has given me another course to take.  It has really knocked me out.  I have just been spending my days on the couch and not doing much else I haven't had the energy.  My hubby said I must be pretty sick to not even get onto the he knows me well.

As soon as I feel better we will go to the beach house it will be great for the kids to get out of the house and we are going to have some great beach weather this week.

I'll be around to visit your blogs soon.  It feels like I have been away for months.

Take care.
