OK. Am ready. Bring on Christmas

Tree is decorated. Presents are all wrapped. Menu planned. House is clean & tidy (well almost).

Roll on Christmas, and the following two work-free weeks in the sunshine. Nothing planned except laziness and relaxation.

Tuesday we are having a barbecue for my work colleagues, then on Friday, we are having a family Christmas here

My new board game arrived in the post. Am looking forward to playing Tobago tomorrow. Sounds good from this review.

Warming up

Summer well and truly arrived this week. We sweltered on Tuesday and most of the week was pretty warm too. Humidity got up to 100%

I posted my overseas selection of Xmas parcels, to the tune of $270 in postage. Next year I will send lighter things, I keep telling myself this every year and the P.O just gets richer.

Yesterday our present to ourselves arrived: 2 new leather sofas, which look great. Placement of these spurred on a much needed clean out & rearrangement of the living areas. Paul & Kylie inherited the old lounge suite for their new place.

I don't get all the Jewish references / jokes in this video so my sincere apologies if posting this causes anyone any upset....

Only 44 years on...

A new Dylan outtake called 'California' from 1965 has surfaced....

"Well, I got my dark sunglasses
I got for good luck my black tooth
Don't ask me nothin' about nothin'
I might just tell you the truuuuth"
