Well, Christmas was tolerable. A mix of the pleasant relaxation available only in the country, and the unpleasant disappointment of receiving a toolbox as a gift. It is a very comprehensive toolbox, including the humble stanley knife and going all the way up to the hole-borers and other gadgets of which I know not the name. But they did show some good sense, in getting me the Douglas Adams biography and a bottle opener.
So anyway, it was just the four of us, it was lunch at Haguns (far too crowded to be truely enjoyable, but nice enough food), and it was relaxing. I had awful hayfever the whole time and Brad and I got dreadfully mozzie-bitten. Just another bush Christmas!
