Christmas eve and all is well

I’m sitting on my little patio sipping a delicious pomegranate cocktail and munching on fresh cherries while waiting for some friends to arrive for Christmas eve drinks (and a barbecue later). 

It’s a clear blue sky day and it’s getting a bit warmer as the afternoon progresses. Even though it doesn’t get horribly hot in NZ, we do have very thin ozone which equals a killer sun. This reminds me I better go slap on some sunscreen and get the sun umbrella out before I start to grow a melanoma glow.

Have a merry Christmas all.  Stay safe and enjoy your loved ones if you’re lucky enough to be spending time with them this season. Stay warm if it’s cold where you are and stay cool if it’s warm.

I’ll catch all of my lovely bloggy friends after Christmas and remember; you can’t make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in.


Westhaven_Marina_Auckland_New_ZealandI dropped Rory off here to Westhaven Marina earlier today where his dad’s boat is moored so they can go sailing for the day.  The sea breeze was lovely and I almost wished I could tag along.


  1. Sounds like you are already having a 'Merry Christmas'. What a wonderful way for your son to spend Christmas Eve.

    Wishing you all the best for 2010!


  2. I hope you have a great Christmas! I have to say I'm jealous, I would love to be sailing not to mention it is only 13° here in Pittsburgh.... Take care

  3. Not sunscreen weather here but at least we won't have any snow this year.
    Merry Christmas Lou.
    Have a great holiday season and we will see you soon.

  4. Merry Christmas, Lou!
    Though it's already Christmas for you!

  5. Happy Christmas, Lou! I was in the kitchen ready to hit the cocktails at 8 a.m., but thought better of it...

  6. I've seen that marina!!! Sounds like a heavenly Christmas Lou - enjoy and we will see you soon.

  7. HA! I love that line about stalking someone till they give in! I hope you've had a lovely more to go!

    I thought of you today whilst cruising the NZ aisle of the savignon blancs!


Make my day and leave a comment. C'mon you can do it.
