Slow starts to the day, water sports and family time have been the mainstays of our holiday time during Christmas-New Year week. The weather has been gradually warming up during the week and we are heading for a scorcher of 41C (106F) on New Year’s Eve. The boys have been kept occupied by boogie-boarding at the beach and “donut” rides behind the boat interspersed with watching and playing backyard cricket. Matthew even had a try at water-skiing and nearly got up and going. Perhaps he will be successful next time.
I have been sleeping in well past 9am most mornings and breakfast seems to blur into morning tea and into lunch very quickly. However, it doesn’t really matter as everyone is chilling out this week with DH on holidays as well.
