Xmas/New Year 05-06

Had a pretty cool time of it over Christmas and New Year – most of it spent out of Wellington with family. Random list of stuff we did:

  • cooked a turkey – successfully!

  • had 3 bottles of ’98/’99 Bordeaux – all gone off – what’s the chance of that happening?

  • enjoyed excellent coffee at Brown Sugar Cafe in Taihape

  • was in Whakatane for the national high temperature of 28*C one day

  • made raspberry jam

  • made pavlova

  • read 2 books

  • hacked back the basil plant before we left and it’s coming back for it’s *3rd* crop despite being left without water for 10 days

  • entertained various overseas guests in various places from Basel, Montreal and Blenheim

  • had 3 gift opening sessions

  • watched father shooting rabbits (from such a distance I really only heard the bang)

  • hung out washing on a real clothes line

  • knitted

  • went to Mitre 10 mega.
