As we will be in the USA for Elizabeth's 21st birthday on February 2nd, we decided to celebrate early and give her gifts to her beforehand. We had a Turkey and Salad lunch and champagne to toast her. It was such a lovely day and allowed Granny & Grandad to join in the fun.
A toast from Ivan and I for our special girl.
Now January 2nd, it is time to begin the tidy up.
This morning I woke early - around 4am, managed to stay settled and resting until 6am and then I had to get up. Started taking down the hanging decorations, did 4 loads of washing and tidied up the kitchen. Then Ivan woke and we began the morning with a swim - oh heavenly way to start a day. I did 10 laps of kicking - attempting to remove the Christmas kilograms.
Today I am going to pack away Christmas decorations and tidy up the house. If I achieve that I will be happy.
Then I will make a list for the days to come.
