Hibernation, being busy and all

This blog has been in hibernation for over two months now. I have been busy with a lot of things that I haven’t got time to sit down and write. Until now.

At the end of August last year, we moved houses form Cheltenham to Dingley Village. Then, in the first week of November, our office moved to Prahran. My 15-minute travel time to work has become an hour. I drive to Brighton Beach station everyday and take the train from there. This is the most practical route for me to take as Prahran is in the Sandringham Train Line. During these times, I have been busy organising and setting up the lab while at the same time doing work for customers. Once I’m home, we would be busy organising the house. It took us almost three months to get things in order in the house.After this, comes Christmas. For the first time in as many years, Melbourne had a white Christmas. Cold, that is. At about 3:00 Am on Christmas day, a hailstorm came. Our lawn and backyard were all white with ice/snow the size of mung (mongo) grains. There were still a bit left when we got up in the morning. Usually, Christmas is hot here as it is the summer season.

This year, we were the hosts for the family Christmas lunch. Although there were only a few of us plus Janine and Ramille, it was still a bit of work preparing food and organising Christmas decors for the house. But I had fun putting up the Christmas tree and some decors. I even made my own mistletoes. I wanted to really feel the season so I made it a point to decorate the house this year. I suppose everyone enjoyed the meal of roast turkey, fresh salad, roast vegies, prawns in cashew-nuts crumbs and macaroni salad which Ramille made. I cheated a bit though in preparing the turkey. I bought a cooked one so I only have to re-heat it and serve. Mum brought a yummy plum pudding which she served with custard and whipped cream.


I got an Ipod Nano 2nd Gen from Shane this year. I gave him a Polar heart rate monitor. Also, Mum gave us $200 Bunnings Warehouse voucher so we combined that with the $100 cash gift from Papa and we were able to buy the outdoor 7-piece setting we wanted. Very nice Christmas presents.
