“Mum” otherwise known as my mother-in-law Anna, recently purchased a new place for herself, and we were all grateful to her for opening up her home to host Christmas. Matt & I, Nat & Tim and little Kai, and Tim’s family and relatives all settled in to Mum’s cozy house, safely sheltered away from the sudden onset of rain and thunderstorms.
It was yet another relaxed afternoon of full bellies and big smiles. “Happy Christmas” is what they say down here, and a happy one it was. Except for the part where Matt started to feel ill. More about that later.
