Christmas 2010

I tried to post some Christmas Day photos yesterday but the internet was on a go slow, so I gave up. Here are the photos of a lovely relaxing Christmas Day here in NZ........

View from the spa Christmas morning
Breakfast, note Michael's cheerful demeanour! Once upon a time he would wake us up before sun up yelling 'Santa's been!!'
Not any more, this morning we woke him only to hear him yell, 'FFS it's only 9am!!'
Ham and eggs
