Another favorite Christmas present!

Well Santa did well at our house this Christmas and both kids received presents they really loved. The 'horsey' one got her 'Jellibaff' and HS got a ginger beer home brew (both relatively inexpensive!!). He has been kept busy over the last few days cleaning and preparing the equipment. We already had the brew set as SH used to brew his own beer but it had all been gathering dust after he gave it up as a bad joke when we lived in Broome and it used to be ready so quickly, no need for the heat pad there!!! Last night was the night for our kitchen to be turned into a brewery!!! As it is non alcoholic ginger beer it only needed to sit for around 3 hours before being bottled. The boys had fun, what a great bonding activity. The crate of ginger beer will be ready to be sampled in 3 weeks on Australia Day and we can't wait!!!






We are 'Darby and Joan' at home for the next two nights, HS is staying out of town at his girlfriends and I made a flying trip to Mt Gambier after work today so the 'horsey' one can spend a few days with a friend in the back of a horse truck - fun for some but not for me!!!! Not sure I like this new phase of our lives we are beginning to enter.....

It is odd when the children grow up & develop their own lives! It is quite nice being Darby & Joan! Have fun!

Enjoy being Darby and Joan. My mum loves it! She loves us coming to visit but she definately loves it when we go home! Hope you have a nice time to yourselves!

If you are desperate for some noise and mess I can send my three over.....wicked grin. Enjoy this phase. It's just another stepping stone in life and at least you are getting used to it in little pieces and not all at once. I'm green with envy.
