This holiday season has been so much fun. I feel like I have done plenty.
When I finished work for the year on Friday 21 December, my holiday started. That evening I met my friend at her house and we tootled on down to our local to enjoy an evening with friends and a Pink Floyd cover band for entertainment. Not only was it a lovely evening, but the weather was fantastic and it did not get cold once that night.
The next day was my friends birthday, so it was back to her house again and ready to celebrate. We spent the day sitting on her deck – in the shade though, and I still managed to get sunburnt. It was a fun day just three of us friends, her granddad and her mum, having conversations, sharing jokes, laughing. In the afternoon we got into our togs and went to the beach where we played in the ocean in a blow up boat – or should I say we rode the waves with a blow up boat, it was fun fun fun.
On Sunday I had some me and Mum time, we went to the local, caught up with some people and saw some Christmas lights. Christmas Eve was on Monday and it was $5 pints all day so one of the new friends I made in 2012 spent some time drinking those.
I must say being just Mum and I in the house this year, it didn’t really feel too much like Christmas. However, on Christmas day I started singing “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!”
Mum and I had pancakes for Christmas breakfast, then we got ready and went to my brothers house for the day. It was so nice, Tyler was so excited with all the presents he got and I was awfully excited with mine. An X-box and the perfume I've been after for a long while. Christmas lunch was yummy and scrummy – we had Ham and Turkey, and lots of salads and yum yum yummy! And the deserts were scrummy as well!
I went and spent Christmas night at a friends house which was more fun, and then was off to another friends house on Boxing Day.
On the 27/12 Mum and I went out for the arvo and then came home and spent until midnight playing X-box Kinect – what a hoot we had!
I dropped Mum at the air port of Friday. She was off to Wellington and then Picton for New Years, so I had the house to myself.
On Sunday I left for my New Years trip. A few friends and I went down to Taupo and stayed in a back packers for three nights. It was so much fun. We swam in the lake and made lots of new friends, and went to the museum and ate yummy food, and celebrated the new year. When we were out celebrating New Years Eve I ran into my cousin from Wellington which was a wicked way to end the year!
We arrived back in Auckland on the 2nd January and I have still been having an absolute blast enjoying my summer holiday. It’s Sunday now and I don’t go back to work till Wednesday – woot woot two more days of holiday!
