So that was Christmas then.
I’ve already packed away the tree and decorations. It’s not that I don’t enjoy Christmas; it’s just that every year my side of the family all meet at Mums on the first Sunday of December for lunch and I consider that to be my Christmas day. Then I have a lunch with my old friends during the next week and a lunch with my new friends the week after so by the time the 25th rolls around I’m kind of over it. Anyway I hate how everyone puts the focus on that one day – as if Christmas is just that one meal.
It was extra special at Mums this year as we have two new babies! Yes, the children of the original siblings have started breeding. Two of my nephews and their wives have had babies and they were so cute when they saw each other for the first time.
Here they are with my Mum who is now a mother of four, grandmother of eleven and great-grandmother of two.
Here I am with my girls – pity they’re so ugly though.
It’s really weird sometimes to look at photos of your kids and realise that you actually grew them – crazy shit.
I think Emjays daughter would like a little baby, here she is with her nephew and my daughter. Aww they’re so cute when you can hand them back.
It’s amazing how quickly the kids have all grown. It’s not a table of kids anymore but a table of adults – with babies! One little blondie niece in there amongst all the dark heads.
Ok, well bring on the new year I guess.
