Post No. 87 - Well, Blow me down

It so doesn't feel like Xmas.

It's so's hot, Mariah Carey's All I want for Christmas is NOT playing in the shops (how disappointed am I), the Woolies advert isn't on every other advert and I don't have an advent calendar. Its just all so totally wrong! But kinda good too!

Me and Dad strung xmas lights up on the balcony (photo to follow when we take one!) and they are about the only xmas lights I have seen.

But the cool things about Xmas in NZ...practically every morning this week, we have opened our front door to find a parcel on our doorstep, BBQs (I don't think I need to say anything else about that do I?), the birds singing, the sun shining and the prospect of spending Xmas day on the beach (definetly photos to follow on that just to rub it in!)

Of course, we have never had to worry about getting sunburn in December before...leading to us having plenty of sunburn! Whoops!

Yesterday we took Dad out to the Wind Farm....the one which we eventually found after weeks of searching and we didn't actually have the camera with us - d'oh!

Well we had a camera yesterday and got some photos. It was a little strange though as there was no wind on them there hills, its was so still and the rain was bucketing down. Hardly any of the turbines were going around.

So there you have it!
