Today here in Australia, it’s Christmas Eve – I slept in this morning having stayed up until midnight last night playing computer games with Greg (its wonderful not having to watch the clock), and today is going to be more of a slow-moving, get-ready-for-tomorrow sort of day – Being relatively quiet people, we’ve planned a day at home, but everything is pretty well ready, all stocks are in and in good order.
We are not having the traditional sort of meal, but there will be roast meat, and that means cold leftovers later (love leftovers – something to grab, nothing to prepare), some salad, and we’ll go pretty lightly on everything else.
Sadly for me, our idea of a “treat” this year backfired, so Greg inherits all the biscuits (cookies), bread and most of the chocolate. I got a bad reaction when we dived into some decadence the weekend prior to his holidays, then again two days later, thus identifying the culprit as starch, I don’t dare indulge again (one sandwich costs me an entire day). It simply is not worth it. Greg will take it easy, though, because he can get bad reactions, too, but so far he is holding his own.
Weather-wise, here, it’s been warm lately, so we will likely stay inside, but if it is cooler we will sit up the hill and look at the skyline and daydream wonderful things. Basically, we’re going to go with the flow and enjoy our time together.
I hope all your preparations for the holiday season are going to plan and things are looking good for you.
For those out and about, do take care of yourselves. Have a wonderful time, but do get home safely.
That’s it for today. Cheers to all. 😀
