Christmas is finally here and what a year it has been. I think back to the start of the year and how we had no idea of what was about to happen.
In Melbourne, we had some of the toughest restrictions in the world. From March to November, we could hardly leave our house except for supermarket shopping. We weren't allowed to drive or walk more than 5k from our home and were not allowed to be out after 8pm at night. I remember how quiet it was with no traffic noise.
Luckily, those tough restrictions worked and we have been zero cases for 6 weeks now. After what we have been through, most people have been talking about what a great Christmas they want. The shops have been really busy. We went shopping on the first weekend that they were allowed to open and we couldn't believe how full of toys all the shelves were. When I went shopping last week, there was row after row of empty shelves, people have been shopping!
Christmas is at our place this year and so I bought some new decorations to add to our collection.
I bought a white Santa, trees and reindeers to stand out against the brown wood.
I went shopping last week with my daughter, Alison and Savannah, who is 6 years old now. She is such a good girl and never complains.
We had to have a photo with Santa, even though it was a socially distanced one. My other daughter, Bec was in the photo this year.
So, Christmas is here and I know that we are very lucky compared to other countries who are in winter and that virus keeps spreading. Stay safe everyone.
Thank you to the people who read my blog, I don't expect anyone to read it but I do enjoy it when I get some comments.
Bye for now,
