We had a wonderful mid winter christmas party on Saturday night. I was caught having a glass of wine in the kitchen. The men of the family watch the rugby Aussies vs Springboks after everyone had gone. Clean-up was a long slow process on Sunday with timeouts for cups of tea and coffee. As usual to much food but as we noted it all got consumed well nearly all the birds got some nice mid winter treats on Sunday morning.If any out there reads this, we have just had the final Dr Who episode, I have been disappointed this series the Dr I can live with but Amy Pond and Ryan are awful, and the sooner Riversong is lost in cyber space, any thoughts from anyone would be welcome we are very divided in our house so let me know. Washing machine went on the blink yesterday, $69.00 call out fee today and I came home and have fixed it myself , I hope it lasts . Love all Aunt Bee. Off to watch New Trickslove that show.

It seems that the frost just stays on the ground and never melts. Love this plate.Another find, I am obviously going through a rose phase at the moment.I bought the nutcracker tin and the little one in the background and now they sit on the window sill in front of the sink.Went to watch Aj play rugby last weekend and by the time I found a park and walked to where the game was been played, I had lost sight of him. I had to ask a man on the sideline which teams were playing, as he was supporting the opposition he was evasive, and I thought I was at the wrong game. I hasten to add there were 2 of our school teams playing 2 of their teams. It took me 10 minutes to identify that I was at the right place and that Aj was on the field playing, but was so covered in mud I couldn't tell it was him. Of course in a fit of the Raleighs I threw my jacket down on the car seat so he didn't get my car all muddy, we mothers are really stupid sometimes aren't we. Aj worked this first week of the school holidays, this means he needed to be at work at 7.30am so I dropped him off and went on to work although I got there 1 hour before I needed to be. Some of the staff start at 8 so I only waited for 30 minutes in the freezing cold. I am glad he's not working this week as he wants a holiday and has some work to do for NCEA.
