It’s Chriiiiistmaaaas

on December 26, 2009 in Australia, Wot I Did on My Holidays

Rather damp here, the remains of Cyclone Lawrence that hit the North West coast last week has brought a constant rainshower for Christmas day.

We’ve been to Helen’s parents up in Faulconbridge and even with 16 of us there we still didn’t make it through all the food, the ham had to be seen to be believed, not the usual Sunday joint we get back home but geting close to half a full grown pig! The sort of thing that Obelix used to carry around as a light snack in the comics. One thing I’m going to have to remember to make when I get back home is the balsamic cherries, a great alternative to cranberry sauce.

Even with the rain it was still good to go swimming at 11pm, although the local residents were considering it (at 24°C) a bit chilly.
