Christmas Eve ... Australia ... 2008!

So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young ....

Our beautiful Western Australian Christmas Tree! It is blooming prolifically at the moment - just gorgeous!

Last minute gifts - I rushed in this morning and made another Cabbage Patch Dolly Bag. I have recently been able to buy waffle cloth, so made this tea towel as a Christmas gift for my Mum's hairdresser, Tracey - I think originally I was inspired by Nanette at Freda's Hive, so thank you Nanette! I'll be scouting around after Christmas to get brighter ric-rac!

Am itching to find out what is in this orange cellophane parcel - will have to wait until tomorrow morning, though! Dear friend, Pat, had it dropped off to me yesterday.
And here's our Aussie Christmas Cake - this year a Mango Fruitcake, so that is a little bit different!
I'm off now to finish making Lemon Meringue Pie and then a Pavlova!
I can't help but mention Chris Rea's beautiful Christmas song - Driving Home For Christmas! Sadly my elder son and his partner will not be driving home for Christmas - God Bless and stay safe, Aaron and Oy - love you!
I leave you with the chorus of John Lennon's beautiful song - my very favourite! Have a wonderful Christmas dear Blogland Friends!

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear ...

♥ Hugs ... Lurline ... ♥
