Christmas - Days 9 & 10

Day 9 - Yesterday was a fairly ordinary day until about 6.00pm when I went for a Christmas BBQ with Kath, Di and Lyn. I worked with these girls about 7 years ago. Isn't it weird how when we work with people they tend to become your friends by just working with them. It doesn't matter if you have nothing in common with them, you still socialize with them. It isn't until you no longer work with the girls that you realize which ones are real friends and which ones you really don't care if you ever see again. Kath, Lyn, Di and a couple of others who couldn't be there have become some very dear friends to me and I know that we were placed in the same work environment for a reason - to benefit each others lives. Notice how we all how our own variation of red Christmas shoes (mine were actually orange - but that is sort of red if you squint your eyes.

Day 10 - Today's Christmas decoration is the Advent Calender I made last year. I am very pleased how it turned out - how cute is Santa's face. I guess eventually when I have grandchildren the pockets will have lollies as well as numbers!!


  1. I like the Advent calendar. I made one a long time ago, and the kiddies would fight on Christmas Day because they all wanted to put the baby Jesus up. One lad was (nearly) alwasy the first up every year.

  2. LOL Red shoes if you squint, you are priceless my blogger friend! I love the advent calendar that you made and funny to see BBQing near Christmas. I cannot even fathom that while I sit here in -20c and snow covers the bbq as I type. I'd have to shovel the back patio, dig out the BBQ and then freeze my butt off to even think of a BBQ, so ya, I think that I'll wait til spring for that!

  3. I love that picture of the Four Fab Friends' shoesies!

  4. FABULOUS Advent Calendar, Davine. I am enJOYing your Christmas Journey. :)
