Christmas Tree and Gifts

Crazy times but it’s all good!

The Christmas season can sometimes get a little crazy!  There are usually lots of parties, too much food, too much alcohol, lots of shopping for gifts (shopping centres and parking wars!), money stress (all that spending!), what to wear to each event (not to mention Christmas day), cooking […]

365 Grateful – Day 91

My favourite part of our Aussie Christmas is all the summer stone fruits – cherries, plums, mango’s, peaches, apricots, nectarines and good ‘ol watermelon.  Who doesn’t have childhood memories of sitting outside eating watermelon with the juices dripping down your arms and spitting out the seeds – pure […]

365 Grateful – Day 90

I haven’t felt well today, so spent most of the day lying down and resting.   It wasn’t until tonight that I began to wonder what I would use as my grateful photo for today.  It is dark outside so I needed to focus on things around me in […]

There were talented singers singing carols, children singing and playing the violin, a lady playing […]

365 Grateful – Day 76

I am grateful to finally have a little bit of Christmas in the MinsMash house with this Clayton’s Christmas Tree that is puppy proof yet still pretty! I went with the minimalist look, putting only my favourite Christmas decorations on this Clayton’s Christmas Tree.  As you can see […]
