An outback Christmas

I am back to civilisation after spending four days on my Uncle's property out near Condoblin ("outback Australia"). No phone service or internet for four days was just what the doctor ordered and I feel very refreshed. We had such a wonderful Christmas- spent mostly opening presents, eating delicious food and drinking beer whilst lazying around the pool. It was a super hot day around 37 degrees celcius (approx 99F) which is my type of weather- luckily we had good air conditioning. Quality time with my family was so enjoyable and there is nothing better then being in the middle of no where with no real world distractions.

Little chicken born on Christmas day, perfect timing?

The following pictures were taken when we went 4 wheel driving - the country is so beautiful at the moment because of all the rain.

A little friend we found on our trip.

Our Chrissie tree, my Aunty did such a good job decorating.

Pre-dinner wine, I love my new dress from my sister.

A delicious Christmas dinner, with perfect company.

I hope your Christmas was magical and I would love to hear about it.


  1. Looks like so much fun! Gorgeous pictures, adorable chick, and I love the purple on the Christmas tree! It still seems SO strange that it's hot for Christmas for you guys. We finally had snow for the first time in quite a few years in Southern Indiana, thank goodness!
