Christmas Lunch Squared

House to Home

Toast & Tables

This is where Son #4 will be spending his Christmas Day this year.

Sadly Son #4 will be away working remotely on Christmas Day this year, so we are having a special Christmas lunch for him on Sunday, as he's home at the moment on his 6 day break. I'll have to turn around & repeat the whole exercise again on Christmas Day, but hey that's what Mums are for! We will really miss him, but he loves his job, so we need to make sure his family Christmas is wonderful, albeit on a different day.

As of today I'm officially on holidays, & am not due to return to work until January 20th - happy, happy days! However, I do have a couple of urgent things to complete, so I'll be hard at it until mid-afternoon & then that's it!! I do need to start the serious task of wrapping gifts ready for Sunday, so here's some ideas that caught my eye. A very happy weekend to you all, I'm sure most of you will be very busy, but please find time to relax for a few precious moments.


  1. Millie...It is nice that the beginning of your one month time off coincides with #4 son's 6-day break. Enjoy your pre-Christmas festivities with him and keep MOTH away from the computer. Have a lovely holiday. ♥Rosemary

  2. well that post just made me want to unwrap and re wrap all my christmas gifts!!! lovely finds!

  3. I'm very break doesn't start until Tuesday and isn't nearly as long. Still, you deserve it!

    Sorry son #4 can't be with you!

  4. Wow! now that is a hole. My 6 year old would love to see that and the machinery it takes to dig it. I hope you have a great time with your boys. TTFN Ta Ta For Now. Heidi

  5. I have been too busy with kids, mondo cherry and Christmas to read my favourite blogs this week, and what gorgeousness I have missed. Maybe not the hole in the ground, and definitely not the Melbourne dressing ground, but the pressies look gorgeous. And as for that little bub... makes me think that I could do it all again, 9 months of morning sickness and all!
    Enjoy your Christmas #1

  6. Yay, holidays!!! That looks like a hole in the ground where your son will be though. Your sunday Lunch sounds lovely, I hope you all have a great day. Those images are beautiful. I have yet to wrap mine and have gotten some fabulous ideas from your post.

    tous ces jolis paquets!!!
    je suis en train de faire les miens
    et vous?
    bon noël

  8. Hope you all have a great Christmas celebration on Sunday.
    Wish my pressies looked as good as these all wrapped up - I'm all fingers and thumbs when it comes to wrapping so they always look like they've been wrapped by a 5 year old!

  9. Enjoy it all Millie! I desperately need to start my wrapping and can't stop procrastinating.

Without a quickening of the heart.
