5 years as Mrs Shah-Shah!

Sham and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary last week. Firstly, I can't believe its been FIVE years, and secondly, wow so much has happened in 5 years!!
To celebrate we went to a place a few hours drive south of Sydney call Kiama. We drove through the Royal National Park (which is the second oldest national park in the world..). Unfortunately, I was sick with a sinking cold, so I slept through some of the drive. But that gave Sham the chance to stop and take some pictures without me moaning about it being boring!

Kiama is a pretty coastal town which is famous for its blow hole.

On our way back to Sydney, we went on a bit of a pilgrimage - stopping at a Buddhist temple, a Hindu temple and a home show!!

If you, like us, can't believe its been 5 years, here is a little reminder...
Look how young we look!!

Love you Sham - here's to many more anniversaries!

10) ok guys - one from you for number 10... come on tell us what's been happening with you!

Merry Christmas!

Legend has it, Christmas in July started here because a bunch of Irish people were sat in a pub in the Blue Mountains reminiscing about what Christmas at home is like - crisp and cold - perfect weather for mulled wine, LOTS of stodgey food and being huddled around a fire... the landlord of the pub heard them and had a great idea - and so Christmas in July was invented! So this year, a few of us went to the Blue Mountains for Christmas as it should be! We hired a cute little house with lovely views!
It also had a fire - perfect for how cold it was up there!
Of course a real fire meant that the real men had to chop wood!!
Christmas Day was on the Saturday for us - the girls cooked,

the boys drank and played with fire and then we feasted!

A LOT of mulled wine and silliness...

It was a really nice chilled weekend of doing not a lot - just what we needed!
