I love Christmas, doesn’t everyone? I love the sacredness, the socialising, the weather (even though I do fantasise about a white Christmas) and the simple fact that a year has been achieved and is in-the-bag!
But don’t get me wrong, I do resent the pressure and the forced ‘jolly’ imposed by the commercial drivers of our society and when there are loads of stakeholders in a family’s Christmas, there are all the more people to keep happy and potentially.. disappoint.

Six kids and living in Sydney.. about as common as spotting a unicorn and about as entertaining. Ranging in ages from 5 to 15. That’s a lot of kid.
