Happy Midwinter!

Last year I didn't want to do a big Christmas celebration because I think midsummer should be beer and prawns with feet up and fishing rod in hand on the most remote beach possible. Most of the family agreed to Christmas in July so last Saturday our family got together for a traditional dinner. In my opinion it worked well because in cold weather we all had appetites for rich food. Also the absence of Christmas advertisements meant low expectations from kids for presents so the focus became the food and the family. What made it better was, no one had engagements elsewhere and could devote their full day instead of rushing off to the next affair. It was certainly a far more relaxed and enjoyable day. Thankyou all for coming to the party ;-)
