I don’t normally clog up my blog with personal pictures. But we have had a good Christmas, and so I thought I might share a few memories with you.
Our Christmas Tree and our "new" lounge suite ($300 from the Salvos!)
Our new nativity set - on sale at the closing down of Unibooks in Little Collins Street. Missing Boy and Donkey. Not essential characters...
The Christmas Tree at St Paul's Lutheran Church Box Hill - for scale, see the door on the left!
Mama's Christmas Plum Pudding (see the flames?)
At every family celebration at the in-laws there is a competition to see who can get the streamers from their poppers to hang on the chandelier above the dining table
A very nice bottle of wine which I received as a gift from one of my students which I shared with my honourable mother-in-law on Christmas Day.
My brother's speed boat on the Murray River. Yes, I did go water skiing for the first time in 20 years. Not very elegant.
The local accountancy firm in my brother's town. I was amused by the rather ecumenical partnership.
- My brother is looking after a friend’s Bentley. Now that’s style!
My father and brothers with the Bentley down by the river.
Mia jumping of the "jetty" down by the river
Me taking flying lessons. Unsuccessful.
