Christmas Eve Dinner
24 Dec 2007

New Farm Community Care Christmas Eve Dinner

Tonight I spent my time helping out at a Community Care dinner for folks around the city who are doing it tough.

I'm really bad at estimating numbers, but I reckon there were about 80-90 guests and around 20 volunteers.

Our regular chef was away for Christmas, so my friend Deb put up her hand to pull together the meal.

She did a great job and we served turkey with cranberry sauce, baked ham with seeded mustard, beans, veggie bake and roasted potatoes. This was followed up with Christmas pudding, custard and caramel sauce. Mmmmmm...

Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the meal and a chat. We even had a visit from Santa! He handed out gifts that had been donated for the event.

The guys in this pic are finishing the massive clean-up.

I've really enjoyed helping out at the dinners over the last few months. I have started to get to know a few of the folk and I'm looking forward to being involved again next year.

Simon & Margaret's house
25 Dec 2007

Christmas Day 2007

My brother is going to kill me if he ever sees that I've used this for my diary... hee hee!!

I spent Christmas at my brother (Simon) and sister-in-law's (Margaret) new house along with my niece (Eliza), Mum, other brother (Michael) and his girfie (Tiffany).

We started the day exchanging and opening gifts, then had a feast of various tasty morsels and when we could eat no more we moved inside to chat, play the Simpson's version of Operation, Cranium and the brain academy on Wii.

It was lovely to just chill out and enjoy the good company and pleasant weather. We've been so fortunate that Summer has still not fully arrived.

At home
26 Dec 2007

Feelin' pretty lucky!

I spent most of the day at home doing a bit of tidying and catching up on sleep that I've missed out on in the last few weeks.

Most Boxing Days I seem to have a crash. I think I must just keep myself going on adrenalin in the lead up to the end of year and when all the work, festive preparations etc are done my body just makes me have a rest.

This is a pic of most of the gifts I received this year. Someone in a group I'm in asked everyone to show what they got from Santa and I thought I'd get a double use out of it because I reckon it's better than showing me sleeping or up to the elbows in housework {:->

Picnic in New Farm Park

Some friends were visiting family in Brisbane over Christmas and organised a picnic to catch up with everyone.

It was great because I got to see quite a few folk that I haven't seen for a while.

Bathroom Selfie

Did some stuff around the house, chatted to a friend on IM for a while and generally chilled out.

Went to the shops to get some groceries and when I got home discovered that the checkout chick forgot to put my strawberries in the bag... sigh...
BellaGaia PRO 11 years ago
I've been catching up with your pre-Christmas festivities -- busy girl! I agree with your comments on the 26th -- I crashed that day too -- slept 11 hours! Looks like you got a lot of nice gifts -- great tripod! Any other toys for your camera?

oohhh I hate it when that happens, arriving home and not having what we expect in the bag :P

Couple weeks ago, I got a bag of frozen chicken along with bunch of groceries... Forgot about the chicken until 3 or 4 days later left it in the car... OMG. Thank god it was cold so it didn't stink up everything haha
Lalalian PRO 11 years ago
Hi Bella. While I do have a kick-ass tripod, the thing in the photo of my birthday haul is a collapsible carry basket. I didn't get any photo related gifts this year, which is fine, because I've pretty much got everything I need for the camera I have. It's very economical because it has a fixed lens, so I don't have the temptation to go out and buy a million things for it {:->

Eeeeeeew, Tim. You're are so lucky it was cold out. Chicken stinks to high heaven when it goes off. I know this because my fridge/freezer died last year and I got to experience the "aroma" for myself... bleergh...

South Bank Parkland

Sand Sculptor

My mate from Scotland flew in to visit for a few days before jetting off to continue his travels in the land of the long white cloud.

In an effort to keep the dreaded jetlag at bay we tootled into the city to meet up with a friend, get some fresh air and check out what South Bank had to offer.

Swallow

Well, today was the last service of my church in it's current form.

From 1 January we will be assimilated and become part of the collective of the larger church that has taken our congregation over.

It was a bit sad, but I guess we just have to tighten our bootstraps and march on into the new year.

Caught up with the lovely Renata and Christine for lunch and then jumped on the City Cat ferry to show Simon around a bit more.

Jase & Shelley's

New Years Eve

I had a pretty chilled New Year's Eve at Jase and Shelley's with a group of my lovely friends.

After a while the guys pulled out their instruments for a jam session. Niiiiiice {:->

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has come to spend time visiting my diary this year.

While I haven't been able to keep up with everyone's diaries, I have enjoyed our conversations and appreciated your honesty, humour and creativity.

I wish you all the good things for 2008 and I hope to catch up with some of you in the new diary group.
