What a busy day we had yesterday, up early to make a potato salad as we were having our Xmas break-up at my bosses place. Oysters, prawns, lamb, turkey roll, and salad, very nice. Unfortunately we had to leave before dessert came out, baked cheesecake and Pavlova, but let’s face it, neither of us really needed it. Anyway my boss sent home a serving of each for us today which was lovely of her.
From there we had to go to our six-year-old granddaughter Jade’s birthday party. All the grandchildren had a ball on the bouncy castle, not to mention the wet balloon fights. I also got to catch up with my former sister-in-law and her granddaughter which was nice. My niece and her children were also there, I don’t get to see her often either thanks to my dysfunctional family.
Things are definitely winding down at the office, a very quite day, too many more of these and I will be scratching for something to do during these last couple of weeks before our Xmas shutdown.
I hear that 53 world leaders are descending on South Africa for the memorial service for Nelson Mandela, and justifiably so. I am pleased that Tony Abbott will be representing Australia, but what I do not understand is why Bill Shorten is attending, he is not a world leader, he is in opposition. Just who is footing the bill for that one?
What an absolute load of rubbish on television tonight, you can tell the ratings season is over. Roll on 2014.
