our holiday: christmas in riebeek west

This year, for the first time in a while, we spent Christmas with my family. We've been to Rudi's folks in Colesburg the last couple of years and I don't mind in the least as I feel we see them so little that of course we'll go there for the holidays, but it was a nice change this year.

And it was wonderful spending the 5 days there, spending the day reading or swimming and the evenings out on the stoep just watching it get dark.

Christmas day was a very relaxed lazy affair, just how I like it. I'm not too big on having to go all out with the food and presents. The simpler the better.

I also spent quite a bit of time in my mom and dads new garden, taking photos of all their little plants.

All it all it was a very good way to start our holiday.


  1. Thanks M :)

    I hope you had a great break too. We were on holiday for almost a month and I'm now finding it very hard to get back into the swing of things :P
