And so excited about today!
Mike and Joyce are arriving from Palmerston North. We expect them mid to late afternoon. I won't be able to relax until they are safely here.
Until they get here, we have lots to do.
The guys are going to do a little work on the playground/monkey bar structure and Bex and I are going to get some grocery shopping done.
Steve was given a turkey from his boss... so that is going in the oven today too.
Tonight I am making our Christmas trifle... in the big fish bowl. This time I hope to get the layers right.
And that's all I have for now. I hope your final day before Christmas goes well and you are anticipating a wonderful, family filled day tomorrow.
I know our day is going to be the BEST in a long time.
So far so good. Groceries are done. Turkey is in the oven. The guys have the construction materials, and are working on the playground.
I feel guilty as hell, Steve only has two days off, and I've got him working! Luckily, he loves me so much he would do anything for me.
That's the sort of love you appreciate from your kids.
ABOVE: And the construction starts on PHASE ONE.
ABOVE: The kids are getting excited... but it's still not finished quite yet.
Once this part is done, I will consider what PHASE TWO will be. Cos there will be more added at some point.
ABOVE: PHASE ONE ... DONE.
ABOVE: 'BOB' aka Steve, taking a well earned break. Stew and him did a really excellent job... so thankful they are so handy. They work well together.
ABOVE: The kids, even the big ones, enjoying the playground.
Utterly shattered. It's been a long, hot day.
I will be having a quick nap soon, before Mike and Joyce arrive!
Then it will be time to make the trifle for tomorrow, then go to bed.
