Happy Boxing Day to you all!!

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

I’m not going to admit to a belated happy Xmas or even a belated merry Xmas I am just going to wish you all a very happy – magnificent even – Boxing Day.

I was pretty busy yesterday cooking stuffing, lighting the webber, stuffing the turkey, carving the ham, opening presents, opening champagne, cooking the turkey, playing with the kids, hugging the wife, eating, drinking, playing some more and generally being merry with my very beautiful family. It was a wonderful day. We were joined by Jack (Elise’s boyfriend) in the evening and had a lovely evening.

I did manage to send out Xmas wishes via my 4 face book pages (really I need to have four???) and over twitter so I felt like I covered  as much as I could on the day.

A lot has changed in my life over the last 6 months – changed for good – in fact changed for all  of us here under the Mercurio house hold roof (a new one too as we moved again in November) so having a solid Xmas day together just the five of us was really important. Erin’s boyfriend Jordy popped over for an hour of present exchanging in the morning and probably some lip locking (see what I mean about change?) For the rest of the day the five of us had a really special day just sharing time and space with each other.

So we had a lovely Xmas together, we all just embraced it and held on to it as we all know not where or what each of us will be doing next year because change is in the air.

Merry Boxing Day!


Very Very lucky!

So starting from today I have been married to my wonderful wife Andrea for 25 years! Yes I count myself very lucky – lucky to have met her, lucky to have married her, lucky to have forged the relationship I have with her, lucky to have made three beautiful daughters with her and lucky to know we will be continuing on with our lifes journey together well into the future.

I take nothing for granted, we have had our ups and downs, our highs and lows, our good days and our bad days but over all life with Andrea is blessed. She is a wonderful friend, lover, confidant, mother and soul mate.

We have already stepped into the next 25 years and so far so good!

Thank you sweetheart – I love you.
