Photo A Day Challenge - December

I've been playing along with the Photo a Day Challenge set by
since August.

It's so much fun I'm at it again for December.
I add to this post daily
and also put the photos on

Farewell 2012, you were a good year...mostly.

30. Something That Made You Smile This Year - My Miss 5's drawing of her brother with the Christmas tree.

29. Hot - The sun is already too hot at 9am.

28. Cold - On hot days like this I have loads of these...glasses of icy water!

27. How You Relax - I relax by lying on my bed with a good book or three.

26. Mess - Boxing Day at Grandma's after all the presents have been opened.

25. Lunchtime - Lunchtime on Christmas Day...cold meats, beautiful homemade salads, wine, my brother's home brew, air-conditioning and the whole doesn't get any better than that!

24. Tradition - Every year (since I made them 3 or 4 years ago) the kids put out their Santa Sacks on Christmas Eve ready for Santa to fill them with presents.

23. Joy is finally signing the contract! Say hello to our block of land!!

22. Decoration - This is my favourite Christmas tree decoration. I bought it in Munich on our European honeymoon ten years ago today!

21. Tree - We picnicked under this tree last weekend.


20. Weather - The weather is so hot and so dry here that the grass has turned brown and is crunching under our feet! I think I need to learn how to do a rain dance.
