I'll Be Home for Christmas!

I am so sorry I have not posted for such a long time ..... I have been quite busy as I know you all have but also a little sick!  It was my birthday last week and I actually was sick on my birthday and for some days afterwards.  Nevermind tomorrow is another day and I am dreaming of this beautiful Dior Christmas scene .... so perfect, golden and tranquil!

I love Christmas time and I especially love the fact that we can all feel like children at least for a little while .....

I am very excited as I found this image which I know was on Anita's blog and I love it as I actually have these very same Christmas decorations on our tree which I will show you soon .....

I definitely will be enjoying some of this as we are gearing up for a week of 30 -35 degree days with late afternoon storms .....

and this would be heavenly ..... after a very big year ....

some champagne truffles .... parfait ....

but most of all I would love this and do love this image so much ... it reminds me of my tufted salon chairs and I feel like I should pull them out down to the beach on an overcast day and listen to classical music and just be happy and grateful which I truly am .... I have Dominic home and Alexander due home tomorrow from America  and Georgiana just bursting with enthusiam making sure that there is nothing in front of the fireplace for Santa's arrival ...... as she told me "Mum he is quite large and there must be plenty of room!"  I will post soon on our Christmas tree and what I have in store for Christmas day including two very large turkeys and a plum pudding that I did with my mum in the traditional cloth and boiled for four hours!  Happy Christmas!!!!!!!

Hi Fran, so sorry you were sick on your birthday miserable. I'm so pleased you have your family together for Christmas day - just as well you have a pool because you might just be needing it on Christmas day this year. My house is going to be stinking hot after I cook a turkey & pudding - will have to escape to the beach for the afternoon before our seafood dinner! I look forward to seeing your Christmas tree photos. Work is winding up nicely - hope yours is too.

Happy New Year Fran and I hope you and the family have a great year in 2012!
I love Hayman Island - we were there a couple of years ago but lucked out with the weather. Spent more time reading indoors rather than cocktailing by the pool! Derek & I just arrived back from a 12 day road trip to Kangaroo Island - great to spend so much time having fun, not working & eating seafood! At least we come back to a beach house, great weather and beautiful beaches!
