Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and all that...

I know, I know, I'm a bit late. We went home for Christmas (and by home, I of course mean Sydney, Australia) and I was basically only online to check email. But I hope you all had a great time with the people you love.

So we got to spend a grand total of like 9 days back in Oz - kinda annoys me because we planned that based on the school holidays, assuming I would need to be back for the start of term, but anyway, Graeme couldn't have taken too much more time off since we want to do some serious holidaying this year and besides, we will be back in September for a couple of weddings. It was a great holiday actually - we just hung out, played my brother's wii, went shopping, caught up with most of our favourite people. Aside from the jetlag, it was the most relaxing holiday I've had in ages.

I won't bore you with the details, I'll just put up some photos.

me and my sister elizabeth - taken by her
this is NOT the funniest photo of her, but i resisted posting the others because they were pretty embarrassing
just a future warning to everyone reading this: if you strike stupid poses when i point my camera at you, don't be surprised if they end up on the internet

scully on the trampoline
...and just to prove how alike they are...

(to outside observers - the two above boys are not related - scully is part of one of my favourite families that is not related by blood and josh is my brother)

callum and finn
(scully's brothers)
looking great in their matching shirts :)

and finally...
my growing family
me, one husband, two parents, three siblings and a (soon-to-be) sister-in-law
this was the first time in forever that we'd all been together, so mum insisted on a family photo. i set it up and then handed it to my brother's best friend to take them. he took about 20 and this is the one where the percentage of goodness is highest - in almost every other one, someone looks odd...


  1. Nice to see you finally catchup with the last 3 weeks. Love the photos and and would lve to see more of them. I am going to have to learn not to cry when I read your blogs cause I realise how much I miss having you around. Love you sweetheart, look after yourself.

  2. Great to hear your home Ok. Love the photos but then I'm bias! Will update my blog soon! Walking with Dinosaurs on Sat should provide enough to get me started. Keep warm - 40C here today!

  3. Can you believe that Sue and I left comments at almost the same time! Freaky!!
