Yesterday I sat down and watched Andre Rieu Australian Concert on DVD...I love it, this man is a entertainer. I would recomend this DVD to anyone, the backdrop was magical a real fairy tale. He shows passion in his music and you can see that every person involved in his performance throughly enjoy being there. I hear he will be back in Australia in 2009 I would love to go and see him.
On New Years Day and the whole year through, I hope the kindness of others returns many time to you, May hope, love, and warmth be in your heart's possessing, and may the New Year bring you and yours many blessings
This year I kept the table setting simple to keep room for all the serving dishes so everybody could help themselves to their meal. I made the little boots and in each was the cutlery wrapped in a serviette along with a small bon bon and a candy cane. The meal was lovely if I say so myself and I hope that body left the table feeling hungry. Each Christmas I try to make the day special for my Mum so I hope she enjoyed HER day. Lunch this year there was 6 of us...us 3, my mum and brother and my sister inlaw Glenys. Glenys is the wife of my brother that passed away, she is still family and each Christmas she is invited for lunch. Boxing day my nephew Glenn his wife Deanne and their twin girls Charli and Jordyn came as did my Niece Kristy and her husband Craig with their beautiful little Girl Caitlyn. They usually try to call in on Christmas Day but it's just so difficult trying to spread themselves around so they came boxing day to see their grandmother. Caitlyn is the sweetest little girl, a beautiful nature, I know if my brother was still alive he would be besotted with his 3 georgous grand dauthers. Below is a picture of Caitlyn.
Off course I have to put a picture of my little cosgrove in his santa hat.

You wouldn't believe it that at this time of the year, I have caught a cold, or a cold has caught me. It all started Thursday, a nagging little tickle in the throat, thursday night the coughing fits started and continued, friday that tickle has gone but a gut wrenching, body aching, rib stabbing cough has taken it's place. Saturday morning feeling like a road train hit me and dragged me to Port Augusta and left me on the side of the road. But Hey I feel great !!. There's housework to be tackled, washing to be done, I have to wash my little dog as I'm sure he snuck out the gate during the day and found a muddy hole to play in, you see it's been raining for the last 24 hours, I'm not complaining as we need the rain but can't it rain during the night and the sun shine during the day, thursday night I put clothes on the line in hindesight I should have taken them of friday morning but nahhh it will be ok, oh oh oh..wrong move, they are now drenched and will have to go back into the LG to get rewashed so that means I'll have to go outside in the rain to get them off the line, prolly end up with pneumonia, as if there isn't enough washing to do without having to rewash clothes. But Hey it's great we've got rain. And to make matters worse my router still hasn't been installed so I still can't use my own computer, looks like all the pics I've taken will have to go on next years christmas blog. Have a great day.
The power supply on the router has died, which means I am unable to use my own computer as I need the router to get wireless. I'm using the main computer which houses the modem to write this post but I can't upload any pictures that I've taken. I tried to install the router but it needs configuring and my Computer guru is in hospital so until he's well I will be posting on this computer.
I know this has nothing to do with Christmas, but in a way it has. For sometime now I've been looking at buying Timeshare. A timeshare is a form of ownership or right to the use of a property, or the term used to describe such properties. Timeshare properties are typically resort condominium units, in which multiple parties hold rights to use the property, and each sharer is allotted a period of time (typically one week) in which they may use the property. Timeshares may be on a part-ownership or lease/"right to use" basis, in which the sharer holds no claim to ownership of the property. Now that interest rates have come down I decided that now is the right time to look into it. I'm so excited that I've finally found the perfect place, lush green lawns, inground pool, playground and the accomodation is out of this world (literally). When I first made the inquiry I was told that if your looking for a place to relax where it's quiet then this would be the perfect place. Below is the photo of my time share.

Each year I like to decorate the Christmas Tree in a theme, pink/silver, red/gold this year I thought I'd go with Blue/Silver, but today I was asked "where is the red" so tonight when I looked at it I thought it needed some color, so not only did I add Red but also Gold. I would love to know what you think of my tree. Normally I would have the tree in the lounge Room, but as we spend the majority of Christmas Day in the Dining Room I thought I'd put it there so it will be seen on the day.
Red, Blue and Gold - Lights off.

That's all there is for tonight, stay tuned for more Christmas 2008 Decorations at Come What May.
Tonight I started doing my Christmas Decorations, the header is just a couple of my Santa's, above is the dresser with my singing bears. Tomorrow night I will finish the tree and put up some more decorations, then I will photograph and upload them.
What is there to tell about me? nothing special !
