Summer Days

... are the best days.

Sarah is home.  Eight glorious weeks of everybody under one roof.  This afternoon after school the tree went up.

With Christmas carols playing loudly, accompanied by raucous out-of-tune girls, Mr Buble filled the house with joy.

Fairly lights are strung along the verandah.  For the second night in succession we've eaten dinner out there

and will continue to do so through these Summer months.

Tomorrow the excitement continues.

We've an eleventh birthday to celebrate.


  1. It's looking very festive at your place Fiona! Love your verandah. We still have 3 weeks of school left down here..ugh!!! Enjoy your holidays and a very happy birthday to Jess for tomorrow :-) Mel x

  2. Enjoy having all of your kiddies home Fiona as you get into the Christmas spirit! Happy 11th birthday for tomorrow - you always make the best cakes for your kids birthdays!
