Gold Coast diary

We headed to the Gold Coast on New Year's Day to catch up with family and enjoy a little beach time. The boys enjoyed hanging out with their cousins, a morning visit to Surfers Paradise + Time Zone, a day at Wet n Wild and then we finished up our trip with a couple of nights at Burleigh Heads.

It was a lovely start to 2020 and a pause before we dive into the busyness of the year ahead.

Well, 2020 wasn't the start we were hoping for. 

I still don't have words. Our beautiful country is still burning. Please keep donating, keep talking about these fires and keep supporting those that need our help.  Thoughts, prayers and action.

Christmas 2019

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

We had a lovely Christmas Day just the 5 of us for the first time ever. With family spread out, bush fires, work commitments and a busy year,  Christmas Day this year was a much quieter day than previous years. As we usually host Christmas, it was definitely a different vibe!

Noah began our day nice and early at 5.30am due to excitement and the need to check if Santa had been! There is nothing better than a child's happiness on Christmas morning. Bliss!

We pottered around in the morning speaking to family and wishing them a Merry Christmas, preparing lunch and the boys playing with their new gifts.

I set the table using my beautiful hydrangeas as the centrepiece. Everything else was kept pretty simple to complement them. I used my yellow gingham napkins as they hadn't been used in a while, gold chargers + cutlery and metallic crackers were the finishing touches. A shiny, festive feel.

Even though it was just the 5 of us for lunch we had all the trimmings. Turkey, pork, roast veggies and stuffing balls and of course 3 different desserts. It's not Christmas without enough food for leftovers! Mum popped over after work for a late lunch so there was plenty to go around ;)

So Christmas is done and dusted for another year. I have pulled all the decorations down already and packed them away due to our renovations, so the house is back to normal.  Although I always feel that the house looks a little bare once the Christmas decorations are down. 
It takes a couple of days to settle back into normality.

How was your day?
