When I opened up my calendar of events on my phone last Thursday I thought this is going to be a big day of eating and celebrating. Three of the groups that I belong to were all having their Christmas celebration on the same day. Oh dear its a hard life but I managed somehow.
In the morning we played tennis and then had a special morning tea as it was our last game for the year. It was a very hot day so we had cool drinks instead of hot tea. Helen and I both had to rush home have a shower and dress for lunch with the Birthday Bear group.
We celebrate Christmas with Birthday Bear after all it is Jesus' birthday.
Chris dressed bear for the festive season. Bear also brought some little bears to share with all of us.
Knowing that I had another dinner to go to on that night, I ordered the smallest meal at the "Black Forest German Restaurant". There was enough ham to feed me for a week. We got home in time for me to get ready for the next outing.
The Playgroup Ladies of the 70's have a Christmas get together every year as a reunion of the times when we used to meet with our toddlers to play together. Now we share stories of our adult children and our grandchildren. We were at Belesis Restaurant. It was a bit noisy sitting outside near the road. I rolled home with the fattest tummy that night. Three parties in one day not bad for an oldie but now I have to try and lose some weight,
