Which do I prefer? Growing up in South Africa meant Christmas Day was generally hot and sunny. I remember one Christmas being spent on Durban beach when we were children. Jon and I spent our first Christmas together at his sister, Penny’s house where we had a traditional roast turkey and all the trimmings followed by a swim in the pool! Our first Christmas back in the UK felt so different. It was dark by 4pm and much colder but it felt almost magical! The children loved going in to town in the afternoons to see the Christmas lights. And, when it rained, we could stay cozy inside. Both places have wonderful memories for me but I think a cold Christmas is the one I prefer. Today’s max. temp. was 10 C and Durban’s max. temp was 22 C
I've probably spent more time than I should on this today but I'm glad to have completed my second page. Looking forward to seeing everyone elses pages too.
We've had our first morning of frost here and it came on 01 December, which seemed quite appropriate ;o). I was relieved when we went out to the car this morning and it had been raining so I didn't have to scrape the windscreen. I had a couple of errands to do in town this morning after dropping Claire off and got caught in the rain at one stage. I was glad it was a light shower rather than a downpour - didn't do much for the hair though - haha!!
Today, I have been making lists and trying to be a bit more organised. I still need to review my Christmas card list and think about food for the Christmas period as I would prefer not to have to fight my way through the crowds in the supermarkets in the days before Christmas.
For now though, I'm off to do a bit more sewing before it's time to start dinner.
