Christmas Craziness

Well, our Chrissie was a good one, got lots of nice pressies, ate lots of nice food, and so on … but our quiet little corner of the world had its share of newsworthiness on Christmas Day.

You may have seen on the news that a guy was shot by police following a neighbourhood dispute in Lisarow, which is our suburb! And it happened just a stone’s throw from Rach’s mum’s house, which is a bit scary! The police had the road blocked yesterday, and there were journos nosing about getting quotes from the neighbours for the evening news. On the same day a woman was hit by a van while walking on the footpath just a few streets away from us. And to top it off, a guy was bitten by a shark at Avoca Beach, our latest favourite swimming spot!

Apart from all that the day went fairly smoothly. I was lucky enough to take out the Annual Christmas Day Family Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament – my second win in three years, to blow my own trumpet!

The last two days I’ve done not very much apart from eat leftovers and read my book while keeping an eye on the Boxing Day Test Match. Go Pakistan!
