Merry Christmas

The Christmas dragon and his rider have taken up residence by the (cold) fire and the red gladiolus from the vegetable garden make a lovely bit of color in the corner of the sitting room next to the house elf. Time to sing the Christmas carols and ballads and mourn Joe Cocker. Tomorrow, 40 years since cyclone Tracy devastated Darwin, I remember listening to the wireless details in horror that day. Christmas fires a few days after Sarah was born, I was in hospital, John fighting them and my mother at home with our first child in a panic, she didn't drive, oh what a time that was. Memories of a house full of children and peace on Kangaroo Island, so many memories. May all who read this blog have a very Merry Christmas and a safe and healthy New Year, full of wonderful surprises.
