I'm having my last Milo-mocha of 2007. You'll probably think it's gross (1 tsp Nescafe, 3 tsp Milo, dash of boiling water to melt it all, then milk and ice). Yuri is in the front yard planting some of yesterday's Gardens R Us loot. Dax is lounging on the couch, Weensie is upstairs on the bed. It was supposed to get really hot today, but maybe we've dodged it.|
Gotta have a booze-free night soon, but not tonight. Maybe I'll finish The Idiot by tonight - 200 pages to go. On second thoughts, maybe not.
I'm loving this time off work, though. Another week to go. Maybe even a getaway in that time? Whatever. This house still feels like a great place for a holiday.
So. Christmas was at sister's place, Mum and Len, Stephen's father Bob (Sarah's father-in-law), us, the Thompsons. Pork roasted on the bbq. Cheese that we bought at the local fancy cheese shop on Darling St. Booze, prezzies.
Boxing day was here in Balmain with another bbq for friends. Mum roped us in for a drive to Palm Beach and back on the 27th. Taronga Zoo on the 28th. Lazing at home watching the cricket on the 29th. Out to Gardens R Us yesterday, then Jeff's birthday party in Darlington. Booze every night. Tonight is more booze, this time in Rose Bay. Tomorrow shall be booze free.
