Back Again

I hope you all had a most enjoyable Christmas.  I certainly did J

I joined one of my brothers and his wife for lunch that day, along with their daughter and children.  I loved it when the youngest one greeted me with a “welcome to the party – the Christmas party!”

For my contribution to lunch I took a platter of savoury eggs with a centre of finely shredded lettuce and halved cherry tomatoes, garnished with parsley and decorated with a marigold flower head.

Son made himself sandwiches for his lunch.  He worked all day, as well as Boxing Day, and grand-daughter is spending the week with her mother.

Boxing Day was spent quietly at home.   Friday I braved the supermarket and it was still busy, busy, busy.  I guess it is the time of year where food takes centre-stage in people’s lives.  The supermarket was only closed for one day but it would be easy to believe they had been shut for a week!

Our weather has been rather pleasant, except for a strong wind the last two days.  It has been warm and dry during the day, and the night temperatures have still been dropping low enough that sleep is still possible. 

We have been having some spectacular sunsets from the smoke in our atmosphere from the terrible bush fires in Australia.

Only a couple of days now until we enter a new decade.  When I was at Primary School in the 1960s our teacher told us that many of us would no doubt live to see in the new millennium – and now here we are twenty years after it!  Time surely does go by.



  1. I was thinking the other day about how far past 2000 we are...hard to believe sometimes.

    That is a fabulous sky! And your sun made a super sandwich...I would like to see him eat it. LOL

  2. You have given me a whole new way to serve devilled eggs.

  3. It is hard to believe that we will be twenty years into the 21st century. Time flies by the older we get it seems.

  4. It's good to hear that you had a nice Christmas. Also that the weather is such that sleeping is comfortable.
    I think back to the rumours that surrounded Jan 1, 2000. Many were convinced terrible things would happen. Luckily they were wrong and the calendar page turned and all was well.

  5. I made the same comment to my hubby, we were so excited to see the new century and now suddenly we are 20 years on, it's just crazy.

  6. Glad you had a lovely Christmas. It is crazy how people seem to go mad at the supermarkets despite the shops only being closed one or two days! Doesn't seem possible that 2020 is almost here! Scary!

  7. It sounds a great Christmas for you!! Love the sunset, a great ending to a great day :)

    Happy New Year from 'My Corner of the World'!
