Can you tell I'm tired

Christmas seems to have been happening for the last 3 weeks, first Josh Jaclyn and Charlotte arrived on 18th December before they headed to the Blue Mountains to have Christmas with Jac's family. We had Christmas with Josh Jac and Charlotte, Elizabeth and Jared and exchanged presents on 22nd December.

Christmas day Elizabeth and Jared were here for lunch. After lunch Lego was built.

New Years Day Chris arrived and visited for a week as the firm he works for closed until 7th January, then last Thursday Kate, Lily and Violet surprised me by driving down from Sydney (Steve knew they were coming). They went home Wednesday morning and yesterday we cleaned up and today I have been organising my sewing area which hasn't been touched in weeks.

What have we been up to with all those visitors, a trip to Anglesea to feed Jared's beach mission team. On the way home we stopped at Torquay where Steve watched a wind surfer.

While in Sydney Jac's nana died on 31st December, the funeral was last Thursday, we offered her if she flew to Melbourne we would drive her and Charlotte back to Mildura. Josh had decided on the day they were due to go home (30th) that he needed to be back home for Frankie the cat who was being cared for by friends.
Last Friday we picked up Jaclyn and Charlie at the airport and drove straight out to Mildura, spent Saturday doing stuff with them and then headed back to the surprise visitors at our place. I finally finished hand quilting Charlotte's quilt and gave it to her.
