xmas day was great. Kids woke about 9-ish, which they thought was a bit early, but there was no way the kids were waiting and we unwrapped present with Nanny and Poppy enjoying it with us on skype. Kids pretty happy and we loved watchingthe 4 of them together.
Kids sang on Claudia´s Wi-sing for a few hours and we read/slept through the noise. The boys also played Wi test cricket, which ali got for christmas.
Dan and i made a scrumptious xmas lunch which we ate about 4.30pm!
We then got dressed up again. set a fancy table and shared a late xmas dinner at about 10.30 pm. we were all tired, but once we sat down to prawns, salmon and crab, with red wine (not Dan) and then apple cake and Dan´s version of Cold Rock we all had energy to have a Wi-sing comp until about 1.30 in the morning! Myriam has a very good voice, but I pipped her in 1 song; Grame lost all but one of his and josie got the award for most enthusiaastic singer (absolutley tone deaf!!!).
All slept in until about 12 yesterday as so worn out after our late nights out.
We headed into Seville with millions of other families and wandered the winding cobbled streets, did some window shopping, were thrilled by the xmas lights again and had another fantastic meal of beer and taps at a great little bar in the city. It is the best way to eat with a group as ther is always something for everyone.
Today has been a rest day. Graeme worked, Dan and I played cricket with the boys and went for a run in the olive groves. Josie and Clauida drew up a list of 10 games /activities they wanted to play today and have been busy completing it all day. I went into Seville with Grame for a couple of hours while he gave a lesson and >i got to shop by myself and found a couple of bargains. i want boots, but am yet to find the perfect ones.
More singing tonight if the kids get their way.
Weather has been fantastic the whole time and looks to be good until at least the New Year.
