Our Christmas

Frank and I had a nice Christmas. We spent 3 days in central Victoria, about two hours’ drive out of Melbourne. We had Christmas dinner with family and friends… it was a hot roast dinner, with a desert of hot plum pudding with brandy sauce and ice cream, inside with air conditioning, with hot weather outside.

I’m thinking Christmas in Australia might be more of a break than it is in the northern hemisphere, because it is our summer holidays as well—everything closes down, so it’s a good time to stop everything (like blogging, for example). I don’t know.

On the way home, we drove up to the top of Mount Alexander… the local mountain, which has the transmission towers on it. Here’s a photo of me looking out at the view (them’s great rocks):

How did you get on over Christmas? Did you survive alright?

  1. Merry Christmas Robin! I love the picture, what a wonderful view! Very cool that you had the opportunity to spend time with family and friends – that’s what is important! My Christmas was wonderful , as well (except more snowy!!). I did enjoy a few days off from everything, away in the quiet countryside with family – a good time to reconnect.

  2. Wow, that sure is a majestic place. Can’t wait to visit your fair land. One day.

    Yes, “survived ” just fine. Kind of ready for a nap now.

    My computer’s being naughty and wont play that clip right now, but I shall return!

  3. I’m technically on a blogging break so I’m not supposed to be here. ;) But the kids are playing nicely with each other for a change so I’m peeking.

    Still a week of winter break ahead of us before school resumes. Last week we went on a ski trip which is always fun. Hanukkah ended last night – we had a bunch of friends over which was nice. These are our closest friends, they’re just like family to us. It feels good to be with people that accept you just the way you are.

    Happy New Year!

  4. Hey,
    Merry Christmas.

    I had gone for a Christmas party to a nearby city. It was fun. Was there all night, got back by 6 AM. They had a Christmas dinner over there and then dancing :)

  5. Hi Robin. Wow, what a view! My Christmas was definitely more snowy and colder than yours. My next post later this week tells the story, with photos of lots of snowmen. Glad you had a good visit with your family. I tried to listen to this clip but everyone appears to be speaking at the same time.

  6. Hi Robin: What a fun chorus! I watched the movie “Australia” on Saturday and absolutely loved it. I wanted to visit Australia before, but that item has now moved up several notches on my life list. (Yes, I realize Hugh Jackman won’t be there :-) ). I’m glad you had a good Christmas Robin, so did I. Happy New Year!

  7. @Lance – glad you had a good Christmas, Lance – it’s hard for me to imagine being in snow (apart from skiing)
    @Jannie – that’s a good way of putting it – it did feel majestic. Hope you are enjoying that nap!
    @Vered – I have to laugh at your “technically on a blogging break” – I had a few peeks while I was on mine. It was quite good, because I knew what I needed to do straight away whan I started again. I’m glad you enjoyed your ski trip.
    @Atif – Hi there and welcome! Must have been good if you stayed to 6 a.m.!
    @Davina – oh dear – maybe my joke isn’t working – I’ve added a note that you would need to listen on a good sound system – otherwise it would sound like mush, I suppose. Looking forward to the snowmen!
    @Marelisa – Thanks about the chorus! I don’t know the movie “Australia” – I wonder if it is anything like my life – those things often aren’t! I could try to find Hugh for you!

  8. I like the picture that you posted. The view sure looks fantastic!

    I have decided to give myself an extended break, after flying home from my vacation. It’s nice to come over to your site and find out that all my favorite bloggers are well and have been having a wonderful time over Christmas.

  9. Merry Christmas, Robin! I’ve always wanted to visit your beautiful and different country. I hope someday I can.

    PS – Just wanted to let you know you’ve been tagged for a meme at my blog. :-)

  10. I loved the chorus. Ahhhh…you can still hear me singing/messing up! This was so much fun.

    Great pictures from a beautiful country.

    Merry Christmas to you and Happy New Year.

  11. Sure is a nice way to spend your Christmas. Most importantly to be with your loved ones and share the joy and happiness together. =) Nice view indeed.

    I spent mine by going on a 1 week trip to Korea with my husband. Met some nice people on the tour and enjoyed every single bit of it. Will blog about it soon. Let me greet you a Happy New Year, 1 day ahead. God bless you and family always. Enjoy!

  12. @Evelyn – great to see you back, Evelyn! I hope you had a good time skiing.
    @Dot – well maybe you and the others should organise a tour bus! Frank and I might need to build some flats in the backyard to fit everyone in.
    @Tammy – love your new cricket avatar – I did think it was funny when you come in!
    @Ching Ya – hello there and welcome! Korea would have been interesting!

  13. Hey hey Robin, season’s greetings! Hey I wanted to go for that recording, but I have missed out because I have been so busy offline. What an interesting piece of music, now I can put the voices to all these faces hey. Thank you and that picture is just beeeaaautifulll.

  15. I spent Christmas at my sister’s house celebrating Hanukkah with family. I LOVED the blogging chorus. It made me think of what it would sound like if we were all at one big party together (face to face).

  17. @Sharon – great to hear from you Sharon – I hope you enjoyed being busy!
    @Patricia – That snow looked amazing – it’s hard to conceive of it here. Glad you had a nice holiday period – it sounds good.
    @Stacey – I’m glad you liked the party concept – we were playing it like that during the production process, and I thought it sounded like a party.
    @Chris – Oh you DON”T (sound like that)
