12 Days of Christmas

Sorry for the lack of updates for the last 9 days. I had unfortunately caught the flu during this festive season a few days prior to Christmas from the mad rush of trying to complete my Christmas shopping. Needless to say, with my less than perfect immune system at this point in time, I had a few relapses with the flu and fever all attacking my body at once. Somehow I managed to drag the achy and painful joints for family mass on Christmas eve on top of a very red nose which refused to stop flowing, watched a midnight movie with the family to celebrate the stroke of Christmas, pulled off the family dinner with mum and suffered dearly for the consequences the day(s) after.

Today might actually be the first day I got out of bed proper. Somehow after this illness, I tire out so easily that I just end up sleeping the day away in order to restore what little energy I have left. This is making me age faster than I actually am.

But the spirit of Christmas and of course family is what has gotten me going during this period and definitely dragging my body up for the food and somehow with mummy’s curry and the sweet desserts on the table, I managed to forget the pain for about an hour or two. We ended the night by watching daddy and mummy’s wedding tape from 28 years ago and laughing over the fashion from the 80s. I like Christmas and family time and dinners together with the whole family and opening presents :)

The sister’s boyfriend bought a very tempting box of sweets and goodies when he came over for dinner from Coffee Bean! Gingerbread man, chocolate fudge cups with mini Santas sticking out of them, brownies with fake axes and fruit cakes. I think he became my favourite person that night! Why am I such an easy person to bribe?? ><

Nothing Says Christmas Like Good Food & Good Company

First Christmas party of the season at Mable’s house with everyone who is in town at the moment!

Mable dear sure knows how to throw a house party with the roasted turkey,honey baked ham and mashed potatoes with cranberry and vanilla pineapple sauces from Goodwood Hotel, colorful and pretty macarons, pizza, chocolate profiteroles, cupcakes and a huge jug of trifle with 5 layers, it was almost like a buffet :)

Adelaide Eats: Chocola Tree

Best way to end a Saturday night after a 21st birthday party of a good friend? A lovely surprise of chocolates from Chocola Tree delivered to the doorstep and Hot Chocolate from Chocolate Bean. Sugar overdose much? I like :) Topped off with good news from Jie back home. I am so happy for you love! You deserve every bit of happiness xx Im going to sleep a very happy and contented girl. Who cares about the stiff and achy wrist/knee/ankle joints. I’ll worry about you tomorrow. Meanwhile I’ll just OD on NSAIDs and some yummy chocs :D
