Whilst Steve and I were in New Zealand we talked about taking it easy on the old dining out in the early part of 2016 and he wanted to lay off the booze a bit. Take it a bit easier he said! So to aid the staying in we bought a Weber! Influenced by James who we stayed with in NZ and seeing it in action contributed to our decision.
Birthday lunch was a delicious birthday burger feast complete with candle with Stef and Royal Stacks and birthday dinner was pasta at Tipo 00 with Kirsty and her mum. And there were more gifts at home and also from Kirsty including a spa voucher from Steve and an additional one from my in laws including parents in law and aunty and uncle in law and cousins in law! Double spa time - winning! Especially in January when Steve works super hard. I think his gift of spa voucher is also a gift in disguise for him as it keeps me out of his hair!
We caught up with Kirsty and her mum after the games on Rod Laver and we enjoyed a Legends game with Ivanisivic, Bahrami, Forget and Pat Cash before an evening wine. It was a great day out and we didn't get home till late.
And now I leave you with a slide show of Amelia's Christmas adventures and some other family pics. She started nursery this week! Such a grown up! We're very proud of her because there's been no crying and she has done so well at settling in. We'll be seeing her in July for a family holiday in Malaysia and I'm so excited. We have proper conversations on the phone now and she really knows how to get round Steve. Her openers have been "I love you. Can we go on holiday?" How can he say no?
