Christmas Day, the real story.

I am back to tell the truth, I said the weather was beautiful and it was Christmas Day, till the afternoon. It didn't ruin our walk in the Botanic Gardens, and it's rained every day since. I can't pretend sometimes at 
The Rose garden, Barry , me and 3 German tourists.
Driving through town.
No one in the streets, but us idiots.
Christmas time the weather is horrendous, it's a bit hit and miss whether we get a hot day. So here is the proof.
Not cold but torrential rain

Merry Christmas

Vege from the garden, spuds, beans, peas and lettuce for Christmas lunch.
Christmas tree, slightly wonky photo
While out Christmas shopping took this photo of the many wall murals to be seen in the city.
Yesterday morning early morning walk on the beach.
I am now of to dip me truffles in chocolate, fish and chips for dinner, a tradition in our house Christmas Eve.
I am organised and almost relaxed, probably because I had most of the presents ordered and delivered by November. Roast Lamb, Roast Chicken, salad, vege, etc and for a little nostalgia I am doing the famous Chocolate log plus Pavlova for dessert. That's Choco log, with biscuits dunked in Baileys, then sandwiched with cream and cocoa mixture, and chilled. Some raspberries to decorate, then served, Yummy sounding, but the proof is in the pudding. MERRY CHRISTMAS, I hope you have a lovely day, and get something nice. Aunt Bee.

Google made it very hard for a technophope to find her own blog.

Sorry about not posting, couldn't find my blog on my own Google account..............says much more about me than about Google I think. Couldn't remember how to download my photos from own phone. There is a pattern here. 
First news is Aj has gone flatting, (small dance of happiness allowed here), love him to bits, but he has learnt a few things already, mostly of the budgeting money to last a fortnight kind, and wasn't it easy living at home. Tom has applied for Secondary Teaching, one more year at Uni, although he graduates on Wednesday afternoon, with a BA. At last, I thing he will be with us at least one more year.
I will bore you now with photos.

The photos are
The last spring flowers from the garden.
Shepherds Pie
Lights from the Sensory Room
Catholic Cathedral at sunset 
Pink sky at night
The last photo is the a*** end of a reindeer going to the 
Santa parade, when we passed it we noticed it had no head, that was on the truck in front, and too think I thought they flew.
