but as our Christmas cards should be arriving soon (well, depending on the post...)
I thought I better get on with it...
And in fact last year I was only three days earlier!
Covid restrictions have flavoured the year but it has not all been 'doom and gloom' as my Mum would have said!!
In February we will have been in Australia for 2 years - and so far, getting on for 40% of the time we have been in strict lockdown. Much of the rest has been under Covid restrictions. Opportunities to meet up with family and friends here in Victoria have been few and far between; inter-state and overseas non-existent. The last time we went on a plane was when we flew here.
We are fortunate however to have had various stretches of normality throughout the year and we obviously have tried to make the most of them. Now it feels like we are getting back to some kind of normal, although it's not over yet...
We are almost ready for Christmas - although as I write this, Sophie and Kevin are wrapping. I have been pretty late (making and) sending out Christmas cards. The post has been so unreliable I didn't think it would really matter!
We will be meeting up with all the family on Christmas Day but not necessarily all at the same time!
Last year we had everyone here for a Christmas dinner as lockdown had ended and in fact we then had several months with eased restrictions.
