    Up and about. Raining (again). Champagne done, might have to start cooking soon.
    Have a peaceful one.

  • Long lie after a few episodes of Ray Donovan last night.

    Early sitting for lunch, then darts and dominoes or maybe a film, then calling the family to hear them all having a great day

    Still lots of bobbing about though, weather is pish out here.

    Best wishes to all that celebrate today. Hope yours is a good one.
    Trek,,,, too cool for school ,, apparently
  • Yep, Merry Christmas to you lot! Mine is pretty much all done and dusted. Just me and the other half this year for a change, which was delightful. Spent the day on a beach with a select few complete strangers who kept to themselves too... so peaceful for once. Picnic lunch, a snooze, a swim or 6, then dinner and a walk under a full moon.

    Given how the rest of this year has gone, today has been a standout highlight. :D

    Merry Christmas all.

    Now to get my aris moving and start the Christmas dinner. May have to hire a skip to put all of the council estate kak in that the toots got. If I see another Disney Frozen article of clothing, I might scream and jump up and down, whilst throwing my toys out of the pram.

    Laters.

    Does Fedex do same day delivery on Christmas and wear body cams? :lol:

    Happy Christmas to you all and your loved ones.

    That's a hell of a man cave PB.


    Christmas lunch, cooked, served and everything squared away.

    Just vegging out with the family watching top of the pops and just about to put nation lampoons Christmas vacation which is a sort of a traditional in our household.

  • It's not on that scale I'm afraid PB.

    Just about to get the dinner going but I'd best watch my portion size as I'm riding the velodrome in 5 days time.

    That's not PB's man cave. Don't be daft.

    It's more like this:

    Happy Christmas all. Feeling a bit bloated at the moment for some reason. Maybe I should eat something. Christmas pud and Nonna's tiramisu incoming.

    Of course it's not my man cave, that's why it would have impressed me. :lol:
    The one directly above has far too little clutter for it to be mine.

    ride, eat, nap, pressies, eat, more pressies, family and mrs sungod have given me sufficient chocolate and extreme biscuits to trigger type 2 diabetes

    currently replete on a large portion of stir fried pork loin with pineapple, red pepper and chillis, with sweetcorn and rosti accompaniment, can't beat the traditional crimbo feast in sungod villas

    time for the red wine, florentines and crisps

    Very late Christmas lunch, we've still got the pud to eat. Got myself a nice new rucksack for a pressie which will do me just fine. Now tucking into some decent plonk and getting the dessert wine ready.

    At least some exercise was had this afternoon at the cost of a very muddy hound.

    Now do deal with Pinno's Chrimbo quiz. This may need port, as my box of red wine is empty :evil:

    It's actually right in the middle of Sydney Harbour, at the end of a *very* posh suburb, but thankfully is still a National Park area.

    Daughter is in Oz. She celebrated Xmas on Bondi Beach. Burger for Xmas dinner from a cafe, accompanied by vodka & lemonade in a water bottle to avoid confiscation.
    Such is life! so said Oz's most famous son.
