Bushfires vs Suntans
Mum and Jenny are continuing to have a fun time here despite the dismal weather. Mum doesn’t mind staying indoors and fussing over Beth all day, but Jenny is a real sun seeker so the constant local refrain of “Well, we do need the rain” is failing to cheer her up at all.
Last weekend was the Player family Christmas at Tanglewood which was fun as ever. Christmas Day sees the clan coming over to our place. Yikes! We’ve never hosted before and cooking for 12 adults and 3 kids will be a new experience in itself. To add to our nerves, the fridge is showing signs of having its annual meltdown this week.
Luckily we have
Mapp and Lucia, sorry, Hinge and Brackett, sorry, Mum and Jenny on hand to sort out pavlovas, potato salads etc.
On the work front, I’ve just sent off an article for submission to a scholarly journal. I’ve never been published academically before, so we’ll see how it goes.
Got a spare week? Try this.
