Well we just got the newsletter out in the nick of time. I am going to have to do better next year - some people whizz one out each week. I don't know how they can do it. When I started writing them, there were hardly any around and some businesses charged for their newsletters. We do try to make them interesting. If you aren't on our mailing list and want a copy, just email us.
Ian was up at 6am to go and get the meat. I spent an hour queued up to get the prawns (so I bought a crayfish for our dinner tonight as a reward). The shopping is all done. The icecream is made, the summer pudding is made (with our mulberries), the pavlova is about to be made, some purple onions are about to go in the oven to roast before some tomatoes join them, the presents are all wrapped (and at last I see some for me under the tree selfish person that I am) and in the morning we will light the webber and get ready for our outdoor Christmas feast. It is going to be 35degrees but I am delighted for the people in Sydney with rain and Melbourne with 16 degrees. Sure is a strange world. For those in the northern hemisphere, hope you have snow.
In fact where-ever you are I hope you have a wonderful relaxing day.
