Made a Start

Had a lovely day in Sydney on Saturday with Elizabeth and Jenni.  The bride-to-be tried on a few dresses and, although she didn't find one to buy, she's starting to find more in her style.  I was looking for shoes and came home without buying anything, which is unusual for me.

Yesterday we made a good start on Christmas decorating

Family Room
Lounge Room
 Anyone who walked up the front stairs was roped in to help.

Elizabeth sorting out the lights tangle
Mum repotting the begonias.
The family room is pretty much done - some every-day stuff to be put away and a vacuum and it will be finished.  The lights are up outside (we hang a few strings, we don't decorate the whole house with lights) and I have made a small start on the lounge room - will try to finish it off in amongst my socialising this week.

Elizabeth actually came down to see Mum because it's Mum's birthday tomorrow so we had a nice lunch on the verandah (the dining room table was covered with Christmas stuff).

Jenni and Elizabeth giving Mum her presents
but the big excitement of the afternoon was seeing Elizabeth's engagement ring, which Matt gave to her on Saturday evening.
