This is a post for a tourist, far far away, Guess what Daddy bought for the family for Christmas. I was having a bad week and when he asked me why we had not yet bought a BBQ, I told him frankly it was because I had (foolishly??) lent our son the money to register his car, several months ago, and had not beeen paid back any of the money yet. (I should say here, I was grateful that I had the money to lend, and yes, despite the slow repayment, would do the same again). But it left us short of spare money.

Anyhow in his own fashion, he declared this to be his Christmas gift to the family. It came flat boxed, with a tonne of wrapping and so on, and sooooo many bits. The lovely Ben and Elizabeth put the beast together over a period of several hours, now all that's left is to get a gas bottle, and blaze away with a cow or sheep on top!! Due to migraine, Ben declined to be in the photos, but he was there all the way through. Davo was used for heavy lifting.

A gift (chocolate hamper) from one of the companies we work with during the year and

Flowers from one of the patients (its okay, the boss got some too). Lovely Proteas and banksias.

More than anything else this tourist is jealous of the short sleeves.

Miss you guys.

That is one spectacular BBQ! My hubby decided that we needed a new BBQ too, so came back from Bunnings with one last week... so there were similar scenes at our house (although yours is more fancy :)

Merry Chrissie!
