Christmas Eve

Well I've had a good start to the day by playing Croquet with the handful of us whose enthusiasm prevailed above the things that we ought to have been doing. Or - as we were all male - perhaps had left partners to do what needed to be done. Anyway it just means that I now have to get a spurt on and get presents sorted and delivered and get home in time to make some things to contribute to the table for tomorrow and Boxing Day.

We are hoping to have a pickathon tomorrow and a BBQ. Today is a real scorcher with clear blue skies and temperatures up in the late 20s already but showers are forecast for tomorrow in one place in New Zealand. Guess where. Hawkes Bay in the afternoon. Ain't life fun!

Have a very Happy Christmas Eve!

  1. OK, so what is a pickathon???? Possibilities that come to mind include playing 'Pick up sticks' for hours on end; a sort of buffet all day meal; remove thons from the rear end of a donkey...

    Puttin it in Google led me to Pampelmoose/ sparks / innovation which didn't help me at all...
