Finally we sail away

I wanted to get away on Boxing Day but the boat wasn't ready, and we decided we would get packed and get going first thing yesterday. Well that didn't happen because Lynette texted to tell us to come spend the day/night at the farm and break in the new pizza oven. Well how could we turn that offer down? So we spent yesterday/last night at the farm scoffing wood fired pizzas made from homemade dough and leftover Xmas ham with fresh pineapple. Lots of fun was had in the kitchen singing/dancing/rolling dough/adding toppings/eating - good times! 

We did well to get away from the farm mid morning, finish our last bit of shopping for perishables, get on the boat and stowed 436 million bags away, and finally set sail. Kien was keen to get to a sandy beach, and after promising him he would have plenty of time play when we got to our chosen destination for the night. 

So we got here an hour ago.

Still waiting....

When the kid finally wakes up we will kayak to the beach with bucket and spade, and he can dig and make sand castles to his hearts content. I'm hoping it will be soon!

Christmas morning

Last night Kien was wondering whether he had been good all day so that he would get a visit from Santa. We reminded him he had to have been good all year, and we asked if he had been. "I think I have been good, sometimes." he said. I asked him if he thinks Santa will be coming. He said, "I'm pretty sure Santa will come, but maybe he will only give me 1 present." Well it was 10:30pm when Kien finally put out a tart and beer for Santa (but he had to taste the tart first, apparently, to make sure it was OK for Santa. 2 bites later...). Straight to bed without any stories because it was way too late - he yammered on about Santa and having to go to sleep before he could come along and how Santa will have to come through the door instead of the chimney because we don't have one. Finally, he fell asleep.

I was awoken by a kid who sprung out of bed and asked excitedly if he could go and see if Santa had visited. Thump thump thump as he trotted downstairs, and then silence, and then a very surprised/excited, "Mummy! Santa DID visit last night, and he left presents!"

Right, so I've got to get up and changed so we can officially start our day. Have a happy day!
