I've just arrived home from a quick dash to Harris Scarfe for the BOH's Christmas present.
A set of scales that tell you everything including how many calories you need to keep your present weight or lose weight, $169.00 reduced to $49.95. Bargain.
I've been at the Home for the post Boxing Day BBQ. I have to say that the new head girl has a real team leader spirit and everything event that I dreaded having to go to has been a blast. The staff did all the cooking today, sausages, chops, hamburgers and garlic and herb bread. The sweets were out of this world, trifle made with sponge and crushed strawberries, chocolate ripple cake, fruit salad and one of the nurses husbands turned up with an enormous fresh chocolate cakes with strawberries on top. And icy cold Cascade light beer and wine. But best of all, laughter, lots of it. Something that's been missing for a while and I'm sure it had nothing to do with most of them being half pissed.
If this is my mother's last Christmas, it's been a beauty.
And no, I'm not taking my BGL until the New Year. I would like to enjoy the last days of 2011.
