Christmas Eve. Christmas Day. Boxing Day

So I'm a few days late on the Christmas wishes.  I have no internet at home til at least the 8th of Jan and I've maxed out my monthly data limit :(

How was your Christmas?  Did you attempt the Boxing Day sales?

Merry Christmas from my family to yours!
Hehe

My cousin made an amazing pomegranate pavlova for Christmas Eve

My Christmas period was pretty standard - working Christmas Eve then popping over to my extended family do followed by my immediate family's present opening party.

I LOVE PRESENTS


Christmas Day at Wayside Chapel volunteering to feed the homeless followed by lunch/dinner/games with Tom's extended family.


Yesterday something strange came over me and I had the urge to GO TO A PHYSICAL SHOP and do some Boxing Day Sale shopping.  No idea why, I don't even go into stores the rest of the year.

I wore my new Seed Espadrilles which are beyond ridic comfy for my wide-ass foot.  Also wore my new scarf I got for Christmas and my used-to-be-white-but-now-pink tee from Everlane.


Westfield Bondi Junction was a nightmare.  We eventually got into the centre and bought a single item - Maxwell and Williams tumblers.  That's it.  Then we went down the road to Eastgate shopping centre and picked up some pots+pans from Aldi, and a fruit bowl from Kmart.

Do you like me $5 Kmart fruit bowl?

Half price Maxwell & Williams tumblers
Our ex-flatmate came over and we had our annual leftover ham meal - Jamie Oliver's Turkey con chilli but we use ham instead because we always have heaps of ham leftover.  This year we also decided to have the Heston Blumenthal pudding from Coles.  Yum yum yum.




Aaaand now it's the 27th and I'm back at work in an office that only I seem to inhabit.

  1. I had the urge to go Boxing Day shopping & came home empty handed. Soooo many people buy crap I swear they don't even need. Everyone goes nuts

    1. That's so true, people buy for the sake of buying.

      Good on you for not falling into that trap.

  2. Merry Christmas! Not really bad thing that you didn't get much at the sales? More money so you can splurge during the year instead? :)

    Ps: I like your fruit bowl. Should go to my local k-mart and get one myself
