Merry Christmas All from the Antipodes

Christmas Day has just ticked over here in the southern hemisphere.  Everyone else has gone to bed and I'm taking a few moments to myself to drink some water and blog a little.

Today has been busy.  Wrapping presents takes on a whole new meaning when you're dealing with gifts for children.  You have to wait until they go to bed – which means until very late when one of the children is Petra – then engage in a frenzy of paper-folding, tape-sticking, and label-writing.  The end result of our burst of activity is a truly impressive number of parcels under the tree waiting for Olivia and Petra.  Petra's still too young to really care – the paper will amuse her as much as the presents themselves – but Olivia at 3 1/2 is old enough to be very very excited about it.  Watching her enthusiasm will be fun.  I just hope she doesn't get up too too early……
