I know I'm a week early, but we're heading off on holiday leave on Tuesday night straight after work, so I won't be able to post again until after Christmas.
We are making our annual pilgrimage to Melbourne and Bendigo to visit our families and spend the festive season with the ones we love and who love us. All of the grandparents are very much looking forward to seeing young Romily - she has come along and grown so much since they saw her last in October.
She is becoming a very beautiful person, although she is a real handful. She is the tantrum throwing queen, but then the next minute can be just delightful. It's hard as an adult to remember to not stay mad at littlies! I have to keep reminding myself that I'm the mature one in this relationship, so I'd better start acting like it!
I'm looking forward to showing her off to our families. She won't really 'get' Christmas this year, especially as we don't have our Christmas tree up - we figured since we're going away and she'd only destroy it, there wasn't much point. I will make a big effort next year - and it gives me 12 months to make a tree skirt :)
So Merry Christmas everyone - stay safe, eat too much, drink a bit (but not if you're driving) and enjoy some time away from work and with your loved ones.
