Today is definitely the day for sitting in front of the telly and not moving very far!! We had a lovely Christmas Day. The day started off early as it always does in our house... the sky starts to lighten around 4.45am and once the sky is light the cats are awake, and when the cats are awake so is Daisy and that means it's time for Mum and Dad to get up too..... We did manage to get a sleep in yesterday to about 5.30am... bonus!
After feeding the grey wonders and having a cup of tea in bed, we took Daisy dog out for a early walk. Then it was ham and eggs for breakfast and hey presto before you know it's time to put the turkey in the oven! We then opened the couple of presents that were under the tree and gave the furry ones their stockings. Daisy enjoys the unwrapping but the cats aren't that fussed! However there were some little things in a stocking for them.

After lunch we had an hour of sitting outside on the patio listening to some good old Aussie pub rock (Micheal Buble was all worned out!) and enjoying the very mild summer's day! (Most unusual for this time of the year in Perth). My brother rocked up around 4pm, stayed for a leftovers dinner and the night. It wasn't a late night though as we were all knackered and in bed by 9pm!
So after a big day yesterday, today is a very quiet day doing nothing in front of the telly. Hubby is trying to keep busy though so that he doesn't worry too much about his eldest son who is currently sailing in the "Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race" in a 50ft yacht called "Knee Deep". We watched the start of the race and tried to catch a glimpse of Knee Deep - they were up with the big boys in the first starting line this year, but unfortunately "Wild Oats XI" is apparently the only boat in the race... or at least that's what it seems like as Channel 7 only really showed Wild Oats XI. Never mind.... For the next few days now Hubby will have to be content with following the race via the yacht tracker.....
We have now switched channels and are watching the Boxing Day test between Australia and India. Sailing and Cricket are the two main staples of an Aussie Boxing Day!! Oh and of course turkey sandwiches and left over trifle and/or Christmas pud. Oh my goodness... more food! Oh well the diet will start next week....
That's all from me for now. I hope that everyone is enjoying their Christmas holidays.
Til next time, take care...
