The Best Christmas Present Ever

Tomorrow our two daughters will be arriving home for Christmas with their partners. What better Christmas present could we wish for? Can you guess how excited we are? We haven't had them all here before and it is a long time since we have had the girls together for Christmas.
Sonya left home when she was 19, she is now 34, and Carol-Ann left home when she was 24, she is now 36.
Sonya has lived in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. She has travelled with her job to Adelaide and overseas to U.K. and Europe. She has been lucky enough to have had holidays in Switzerland, The Greek Isles and Thailand. She now lives in Sydney.
Carol-Ann has lived in Brisbane, Melbourne and London. She has travelled with her job to Europe, U.S.A and Dubai. She has been lucky enough to have holidays in Switzerland, France. Italy, Spain, Singapore and now Australia. Yippee! She now lives in London.
Carol-Ann is married to David. She is an interior designer and he is a composer.
Sonya's partner is Bernie. She is a production manager and he is an actor.
So there is my brag session for the day, as you can see we are very proud of them and are thrilled to bits that they will all be here for Christmas!!!


  1. Congratulations! What a fun Christmas this will be for you.

  2. What a blessed Christmas! Your daughters and their sweeties are beautiful!:)
    Merry Christmas!
    God Bless,

  3. Sounds like a fun Christmas! You have a great family.

  4. Have a lovely time with your family.....Cheers, lizzie B.

  5. Diane you are a mother and it`s your right to brag about your children....They are very beautiful looking girls and you have every right to be proud of them....

    Have a Merry Christmas...

  6. Its lovely to hear about peoples lives - good and bad. We took it as the 'norm' when we had our family Christmas's - whole of my mum's family and relies from Sydney . Then things changed - separations, passings, partners to consider etc... oh I miss the 'old days'.

    Anyway this year its my Mum's turn again to be here with us so it will be special, given her medical issues the last 15 years, we are lucky to have her here (dont get me wrong she is fit and healthy now - even rowing! she's 67)

    Have a lovely time with your family, they are all very 'arty' with their careers arent they!

    Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year to you all....

  7. Just left a heartfelt comment and its time now to re-write (and I thought that only happened over at Bigblooog)

    Have a lovely time with your family and all the best for the festive season and 2009!


  8. Oh just saw the 'visible after approval' bit sorry....

  9. Hi there Di, I've had lots of problems with pc all's well now. Love to you and your family on christmas.
