Some Christmas Pictures

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?)

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.

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

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.

    I have come back to ogle at that Christmas Pudding three or four times. It must have tasted wonderful….

    Schutz, Old Man Murray looks a bit full.All the runoff from the rains in Channel country and coming down the Darling and Murrumbidgee Rivers have helped.
    All the best for New Year

      “Old Man Murray”? Interesting, as we had this discussion on the banks of the river that day. Is the Murray a “he” or a “she”? We know that the Missisippi is a “he” (“Old Man River” and all that), but the Ganges is a “she” – and I think the Nile was too….

      As for looking a bit full, the spot we were at is virtually a lake – there is no flow – only the locks keep the level as it is. Although the current floods in NSW might have an effect.
