It was a very pleasant week-end here in suburban Melbourne. Good weather and we had visitors on and off all week-end. D managed to get the whipper snipper (weed whacker), which has been sitting idle in some dark recess of the garage working again so the yards were trimmed and just about anything else that did not move, was given a good haircut! I swear, something comes over D when he gets that thing in his hands. LOL The edges look neat and tidy, the yards have been reined in and everything looks presentable again.Weather permitting, I hope to have Christmas lunch outdoors this year. It is much more relaxed and considering most of the food is going to prepared on the BBQ, a practical option.Christmas! I have no idea who will be here this year. It could be 3 or it could be 6-10. That’s the way we roll here. Each year we have people who would normally spend the day alone, join us. It is a noisy day and we always eat late and continue the festivities well into the night.
Tonight , I am going to the course graduation. I am not particularly fond of such events but I will wait until each student receives their diploma, then make a discreet exit. Some of these ceremonies go on until quite late, then there are usually invitations to party or club afterward(normally in the city) but I think I will leave that to the younger students! 🙂
