Xmas Day

The coldest one since 1935- black ice on the roads of Melbourne and hailstones the size of tennis balls pelting down on the windows threatening to break the glass...Scarves, gloves, cardigans and hats came out for the day and us Poms were gutted by the lack of hospitality of the Aussie Climate.

We spent xmas day at Wendy & Craigs (andreas big sister) who live on a kinda farm with more rooms than you can shake a stick at, eating xmas dinner in the car port (see pics). It was a great day filled with all the usual eating and drinking too much and boardgames with the occasional car journey out to check the coastline out which is more or less Andreas back garden.

The Poms came in for some derseved ridicule re the cricket and we settled into xmas day night with the anticipation of a pasting come the opening boxing day test match at the MCG in Melbourne.
