Christmas is on the way!

Happy Weekend bloggers & blogettes!

It is with much regret and a heavy heart to say that I will be taking a small break from blogging. 😦

Fret not my wonderful people, I will be returning when things get less hectic! 🙂

Having Christmas at home this year requires a lot of preparation and I am finding it hard to keep up with my daily blogging + organizing. (Pfft, and we women are meant to be good at multi-tasking!) Hahaha. 😉

Have a wonderful and Merry Christmas and a happy holidays to all of you and your families! 🙂

I look forward to sharing my holidays when I return and reading about the wonderful gifts and experiences everyone has! 🙂

Love you all.

The Big Day!!

Not mine, but with the presents gathered, easily mistaken. 😉

So, the big day is nearly here! *yaahhhh*

I’m from a very large family so Christmas time is fun and hectic! Soo many presents you’d die!! *laughing* I think, what the hell!?  It’s once a year, so I’ll soak up every minute of it!

I’m not religious and so therefore I would have to say it’s about getting together with your family, having a great time and being extremely materialistic! *laughing* Hey, that’s about the the truth of it!

Australia and especially Western Australia, where I’m from, the temperature on Christmas day can be 40 degrees celcius and hotter! Having a pool is very handy.
One Christmas at my brother’s, we had a watergun fight to keep cool! Plenty of enjoyment for the kids and quietly, the adults too. 😉

Although the weather is getting a bit confused as to what season we are right now, it goes from boiling hot to raining and humid!
I suppose the day will be a lucky dip!

So you put the air conditioning  on, check eskis  are filled with ice, start the music and when family start arriving then the drinks begin to flow!
I’ve said it many times in my blog, drinking and I go waaayyyy back! So moderation is the key here!
I’m getting good at this. 🙂 🙂

Everyone’s here? check!
Okay, get excited everyone, cause here comes Santa!
The kids love him giving out the presents and so do I! *laughing*

Presents done, swimming’s done? Check! Okay, food time!

This is our menu for the day: each family brings something but the host buys the majority as it’s always been that way.
With such a big family it takes ages before it’s your turn again! So no big deal really! *smiling*

Okay keep up, this is the menu!! *laughing*  roughly 40 people!

Antipasto platter, feta tomato and olive salad, crackers and some dips.

Glazed Ham, Turkey, Roast Pork- Dinner rolls

Green salad, Cous Cous salad, fig salad, Bean salad, Mexican salad, Beetroot, Asparagus, Coleslaw, Garlic potato

Fish mornay, Prawns, Calamari, Japanese Squid salad

Pavlova, Cheesecake, Sherry trifle, Bowl of cherries, fresh fruit salad and cream,

An hour or 2 later! *smiling*

Tea, coffee, short-bread, chocolates, fruit cake and cheese platter.

It’s only once a year so ‘pfft’ to the weight gain on the day!

Do you celebrate Christmas? if so, what do you do?

Super dooper Christmas hugs to you all!!!!

Depression Exists? (Part 2)

Depression Exists: Along with many other Mental Illnesses!   Yes or No?

Have a look at this interesting post all about someone stating that they do not believe in mental disorders.

Make sure you then click on the link about mental disorders as well!

As far as I’m concerned these exist. But at times wish it wasn’t true! So what happens when you tell the millions of people suffering world wide… it’s NOT!   This is what I recently read about them NOT EXISTING and that we are all being conned!  It’s a very controversial post.

I pondered as to whether or not to talk about it. But what the hell! You be the judge.

Have a read and tell me what you think. Just don’t shoot the messenger!
