A pile of pics of what's been happening the last couple of days.
Christmas Eve (around 11.40pm) Lyndon, his parents and I were chatting in the lounge and all of a sudden there was this almighty bang and a loud swish of water. The front glass pane on Tom's tank had given way and exploded out onto the deck. I saw Tom riding the flood of water before hitting the deck several metres from the tank, he quickly scurried over to the wall and stayed there while we cleaned up.
We put him in our portable tank and he was very shaken up. He sat for about 20 minutes on the rock and hardly moved at all.
Then he went under the rock and tried to hide. Poor little thing. He seems much better now though and doesn't seem to have broken anything.
Christmas Eve the presents were wrapped, the stockings were filled and all under the tree.
"Do not touch. Please go and ask Mummy first!" hehehee It worked!
Jingle had left a special breakfast for us, waffles, syrups, whipped cream and loads of fresh fruit. Delicious!
After the kids had finished breakfast, dressed and hair done they opened their stockings (note it's still dark outside!!)
I gave him a gong :-) The kids had great fun with it.
Santa bought me this awesome word art. Love it. Has some very good words on it for me (and the kids!! e.g. 3rd line from the top!!)
Yesterday Lyndon went off and bought a new tank for Tom. Unfortunately they didn't have the same size in stock, so this one is a little bit shorter. But it's much better than his portable one.
So that's been us. Today has been quiet too. The kids have been bike riding this morning and now Lyndon, Maddison and the grandparents are off to visit the Islamic Arts Museum. Tonight we are going out for dinner with friends.
Thanks for visiting.
