Merry whatever...

We had quite a lovely Christmas Day, despite having Old Nana taken to hospital with pneumonia and our family 'drunkle' (that's a drunken uncle) having a go at us for turning in at 10pm. So after a very non-christian-or-christmas outburst at my drunkle this morning * we departed to Nowra to have a second Christmas day with Nath's family. The kids had a lovely day - a quality present which delighted Lily and lots of cars for Paddy which kept him enthralled for hours. Lil also got an Astroboy toy from my sister which was a huge hit. Those of you who've been around for a while may remember Lil's desire for an Astroboy during the "Front" knitting incident last year. Its cause a few sharing issues but they've generally been delightful.

*After he bought my mother to tears I said to him 'Nice to know that it not just your own family's Christmas' that you f*** up, and that you don't mind f***ing ours up either'. I then dramatically closed the door and the curtains so he couldn't respond. Not very mature. And I'm not 100% proud of it. But I'm sick of letting people do/say awful things and get away with it. As the other resident drunk (currently on the wagon) I was the only one that could say it and get away with it.

I don't know - I think you said what desperately needed to be said to the drunkle. Plus he brought your mum to tears and that's just not cool.

Happy Christmas! Glad it was mostly a good one. Hope Old Nana comes good quickly.

Merry Christmas! I'm glad it was mostly a good day, and hope your Nana gets better soon.

For what it's worth, I agree with Michelle. It sounds like drunkle needed to be told.

I agree with those guys - sometimes people just need to be told - christmas or not! =)

Gorgeous photo of the kids! =)
