I have had a productive weekend and two Christmas finishes are now done.
Neither would be given a 100% pass mark for construction but given they will appear for only one month each year I am happy with them and will enjoy them
Yesterday the DBEM and I went to the shopping mall for the last time until 2018. An aged parent using a Zimmer Frame and the Christmas crowds do not mix well and it was a test of patience for both of us. We are having a quiet Christmas this year - just the two of us - and with the DBEM's dietary limitations it will not be the traditional fare either. If the weatherman is to be believed it will be fine and hot so we may take a gourmet picnic to the park and enjoy the wonderful Pohutukawa which flowers Christmas Scarlet at this time of the year.
