Silly Santas

Rear left to right: Safari Santa, Daft Punk Santa, Barbecue Santa. Front left to right: Sporty Santa, Bad Santa, Security Santa and Rockabilly Santa
It's a lot of hoo-har for a single day but the sun shone. Half our family was absent but that didn't stop the Bainos and Babysis from dressing up and behaving badly.  It always seems a little strange celebrating Christmas on a 27 degree day with blazing sunshine. We're not very traditional down here with food being tasty nibbly bits through the day, then a glazed ham and sweet, fragrant pear salad, potato bake and followed by a forest berry trifle. All washed down with copious amounts of Champagne and finished with a few Baileys on ice. Lubly. Of course, upon my return home, the rain's set in and my internet is behaving badly again. Hope yours was happy and safe.

Yep there's always someone who has to turn his shorts into a bra. I guess it's marginally better than wearing them on your head!




Spoke too soon!
