Today's been an alright day, and I'll probably write more tomorrow as I don't feel particularly in the mood to write extensively now. It's definitely been one of our coolest Christmases in a while after a run of stinkers - in fact, all of December's been abnormally cooler than usual, which makes a nice change. Yes, I realise that sounds demented to those of you in the Northern Hemisphere. The remarkable thing is that down in the township of Mount Buller in Victoria, they actually had a white Christmas! There is something seriously wrong about having a white Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere, but Mount Buller certainly needed it after the dreadful bushfires that have been raging in that part of the state.
I really don't feel like it's been Christmas at all, to be honest. Well, at least there were fruit mince pies to eat, Christmas carols I actually enjoy due to the prog rock goodness of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and the first day of the Boxing Day test is obviously tomorrow even if England's abysmal performances in losing the first three of five games in the Ashes has renderred my favourite Christmas tradition a dead rubber. Thanks, guys.
Have a good one, folks.
