Well we went to the country, we arrived at 11pm and saw beautiful over the top lights on houses in country towns (Aberdeen, Musellbrook). I do not have any photos though unfortunately.
I made rocky road chocolate bars from the Nigella recipe which was simple but had to make it twice as the chocolate curdled the first go when adding the golden syrup. So then had to rush to the shops on christmas eve, in the hot hot sun and bought lindt chocolate to replace the curdled chocolate.
It was really yummy and looks good.
Overall had a yummy relaxing christmas. We ate ham, and turkey and salads and there was a lot of seafood (prawns, oysters, bbq scallops with prawn skewers). It was very hot on christmas day and then cooled on boxing day and rained the last few days. There was 100mm of rain in Scone in the last two days. It is beautiful to spend the day looking at the rain and mountains and not doing much. Unfortunately I did not get any photos.
Joaquin also rode on the motorbike with his dad and loved it and wanted more. He got lego, and thomas trucks and dinosaurs and a dinosaur book from christmas. Plus more toys and a little scooter from his nanny and poppy and cousins.
Now back in sydney, the weather is beautiful and sunny but not too hot. The water must be beautiful at the beach.
