Love to you & yours

It's Christmas Eve, hot as all get out. We're doing a Christmas tradition, listening to John Williamson sing about a family Christmas day. It describes the the women cooking, the kids disappearing at photo time and the post Christmas camping trip.
This is the illustration that goes with the words "better give that Nick a thump, think I'll have another beer, runt"
I expect there will be scenes like this all over Oz about 3 o'clock tomorrow arvo :)

Right now I wish you cold beers or hot egg nog, a cool change or a picture perfect snowfall, good company and a sense of peace.

lots of love


  1. Better give that Nick a thump? Not very Christmassy, lol.

    Well, it may be minus whatever outside, but inside Nick Towers the central heating's getting us nice and toasty.

    A Very Happy Christmas to you Kylie. Relax and enjoy!

  2. nick is stealing the cricket bat for the backyard cricket! not too christmassy!

    have a good one, darl :)

  3. At present it's 24C out on our verandah here in Sydney Aus. The people of Port Lincoln South Aust (State) have suffered 40c deg+ and some have lost their home to the flames.4,5 hours away by car in NSW their could be flash floods! on Christmas Day. After carolling with a Salvation Army Band in London 44 years ago, my feet and fingers gradually numbing, I vowed never to complain about sweat, mosquitos,a fly and thirst ever again. Who better to sing of Oz than John Williamson.

  5. Happy Christmas to you and your whole family, Kylie!

    lots of love,


  6. Love to you and yours too! It ain't quite that hot here, but we will for sure be drinking some beer. (We're German-Irish. We need it to survive. Or at least that's what we tell ourselves...)

    Have a wonderful Christmas. I am so glad to know you.

  7. Merry Christmas, Kylie! All the best to you and yours.


  8. BIGGEST HUG EVER!!! Hi honey. I made it. Hopped a ride with Santa! Love you all. Merry Christmas. Love you, love you, love you!!!

    P.S. Dad's funny!

  9. Lots of love and Happy Christmas to you and yours xx

    Cold and sunny here- it will be mulled wine for us :)

  10. I could handle a bit o the warmth but really can't complain because in Detroit it is raining and headed to 40 degrees (f)

  11. Megan,
    What an explosive ethnic heritage you have!

    You'll be able to argue about anything,anytime,anywhere with all the arrogance and self assured,self belief of those teuronic and Celtic inputs --- without even thinking.

    Kylie's Mum is 50% Norwegian though born in New Zealand and her Dad had an Irish surname bur his forbear can ths far be traced to Glasgow. He had plenty other ethnic inputs though.

    As for me my forbears arrived in Sydney in 1788! I'm told they were from Lincolnshire. No guessing as to their status!
