... on more christmassing!

There has been quite a lot of christmas action happening around here.
 There has been the making of cards and the sprinkling of glitter.
 There has been much construction of lunch-paper pompoms to adorn presents and bonbon hats.
There has been the acquisition of a casuarina for our family christmas tree, undertaken with a certain degree of stealth, at dusk. (Thinned from the side of the road down near the creek... since the bushfire two years ago they've grown up so thickly they can't all survive!)
There has been the cutting of my Ma's christmas cake.
There has been a daily inspection by the chooks about how things are going inside the house. "Get out, Boyd!"
... and there has been some degree of craftiness going on. It's time to clean up! Wrap those last presents! Crack open a bottle of Rekorderlig Strawberry and Lime cider and... "ahhhh!"

I can see your pooch WILLING the cake to topple off the edge of the bench. Priceless. Have a very happy Christmas.
