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.
