Liturgical Year - Christmas
Imperfect Advent, Perfect Christmas
Advent this past year was not ‘perfect’. We managed a little reading but alas no baking, no crafts and no decorating. The last two Sundays we attended Mass hundreds of kilometres away far from our own Parish, and though the Church is Universal it wasn’t the same as being home. Yet despite it being an ‘imperfect Advent’ we still traveled towards His Birth with a sense of Wonder and Awe. Though we were unable to enjoy any of our family’s traditional Advent preparations and were only able to reflect on the excitement of His coming in snatches amongst the many events, tasks and the various to do lists, He still came!…

A Pool For Christmas
This Christmas we rather ambitiously decided to buy a pool, due to budget constraints it was decided that a 2nd hand above ground find from ebay would be the more prudent option.

What back breaking hard labour and whilst all had a turn of helping, the majority of the work was undertaken by Einstein, you’re awesome son!! With Carpenter coming in as second backstop! After the soil was removed it was time to add, spread and…

Enjoying the Christmas Season
We’ve been enjoying a lovely Christmas Season. Christmas Day we experienced rain for the first time in years. However the children were still keen to try out their new trampoline mat. Lots of bouncing and fun. Thank you Aunty Monette and Uncle Michael:) The weather did clear up through the week, enough to enjoy the new slide. For hours at a time. And of course there has been the dune buggy to tinker with. And sliders the ‘right size of me.’ Electronics for the teens; ipods and Kobo ereaders. A slide for the playground awaiting installation, in the meantime this works fine. And more ‘fun in the sun.’ And we…
