Merry Christmas

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas!

We had a fine time, probably the nicest day in years.

The weather was perfect, everybody was pleasant, and I even went swimming a few times, which made the warm day much more bearable.

My brother managed another truly random and interesting present (a tradition of his) - he gave me a voodoo doll toothpick holder. It may have a similar future to that of Yay's family Christmas pigs, we will have to see.

For us, Summer Christmas in the tropics consists of cool drinks, cold meats, salads, cold desserts, snoozing, backyard cricket and swimming in the pool. People from the northern hemisphere often complain that "it just isn't Christmas", but to me, it is perfect.
