We've had a lovely two days. The highlight of Christmas Day was watching Amelia open her presents over Skype. The quality was patchy but the delight was all there and it was just so lovely.
Amelia blew us kisses. She brought her gifts right up to the camera so we could see and she got stuck into mothering her new dolly which we'd sent her!
Christmas Day started off overcast but it was glorious late afternoon so Steve and I headed to St Kilda beach where we had an ice cream and a swim and a little sit on the sand. It was busy but not too over crowded and we were definitely pleased we ventured out.
Other awesome Christmas news...my little cousin (not so little now and proper grown up) said yes to her childhood sweetheart Chris's proposal...So happy for them! Congratulations guys.
There was World record attendance of 91,092 which whilst seated in the grounds didn't seem bad especially as queues for beer, food and bathrooms were not long at all but the walk home over the bridge as the bottom right picture shows, proves there were a lot of people; so much so we decided to avoid the direct route of the bridge and wandered through East Melbourne and into the CBD instead.
So now we're back home, half packed for our South Australia road trip and had a dinner of leftovers...Next post will be about our exciting trip....whoop whoop!
