An true Aussie Christmas

I often get the idea that many of the O/S readers esp to Jspace don’t quite get what a true Xmas should be. None of this cold and snow (unless you’re unlucky enough to live in Melbourne in which case you could get a bit of both worlds!).

Christmas is about eating, drinking, cricket and messing about by (or on) the sea.

Christmas started early this year (about 7 am) and as the SS Chaz is currently still not sea worthy….


It was necessary to do other things. So it was off to be healthy and having a brisk morning walk and take in a bit of urban tranquility. So Marcela and I wandered down to Herissen island a little island in the middle of the Swan River with great views of the city. It’s a lovely little place and also has a small mob of grey kangeroos.

Had a chat with a ranger who’d also popped down to make sure that no ferals had wrecked the palce the night before and then communed with some local marsupials


and then it was time for some food….to-dinner

I guess all you foreigners know we’re the only nation to eat its national emblem?

Anyway had a good feed and drank a fair amount. In time to sober up for Boxing day and what should have been a humilating defeat heaped on South Africa’s cricketers…well yes needless to say what Cricket Australia should have wished for Xmas was a new team. :((

Hope everyones Xmas was good and enjoyable and as it’s now NYE I wish you all a great New Year.

    Facebook sucks like a ten buck hooker with the US Sixth Fleet in harbour. Yes, I have a page there… but I studiously try to avoid it. Nice to see you found a place to play here, though.

  12. Girl Clumsy Says:

    Hey Chaz – I’m just tracking down all of the J-Space refugees!

    I’m on Blogger over at Hope I might see you there every now and then!!

    Appreciate all your comments in the past, and wish you all the best for 2009.

    Cheers, Natalie.
