Merry Christmas

Once again ‘Simply Christmas’ has come to an end.

Thank you to everyone who joined in over the 8 weeks of festive fun.


We’ve planned, organised, crafted, baked and decorated our way to an old fashioned homemade and home baked Christmas.

A lot of work goes into the 8 weeks of  ‘Simply Christmas’ and I couldn’t do it all alone.

This year I’d like to sincerely thank my magnificent and entertaining guest posters. . .

Make sure to pop over and say ‘Hi’ to these lovely ladies. . . they are all amazingly talented and creative.



It’s Christmas Eve already in Australia and my family are sticking close to our traditions today.

We were at the supermarket very early. . . battling the crowds and chaos to get our last minute things.

Today we will be baking our Christmas favourites ready for tomorrow. . . there’s a table to be set, meat to be cooked and as it is very hot here in Australia, I’m sure we’ll be cooling off in our pool later this afternoon.

Tonight we’ll be gathered around our Christmas tree watching the Carols by Candlelight from Melbourne (my home town). . . and drinking hot chocolates and singing loudly for all to hear.

I think I love Christmas Eve almost as much as Christmas day!!

From my family to yours, we wish you a blessed and Merry Christmas.
