Well today is the Australian holiday called Boxing Day. From what we got out of it, it is when everyone rushes to the store for all of the sales and even take back some of those boxes they didn't want. Is that right? Good day for them to have this holiday, even though a lot of them have the next week off as a holiday and most businesses are closed. It is a great day to stay home and watch some Cricket if you are not into shopping. Australia and England are still playing for 'The Ashes' and they are currently playing in Melbourne.
We though we would update the blog, watch some of the game and eat some leftovers. Since it was a rainy day we though that was a perfect idea to just relax at Nadia and Luke's. But soon we got a call to come over to the Bartorillo's, where Lennie and Scott and the kids were and to help eat some left overs. Not a problem for us, it was almost lunch time already and I had already added a few pictures on the blog.
Luke picked Robert up to go and get Franks car, which they are kindly letting us use for a couple of days. Once Robert returned we were on our way back over to their house. Everyone was there waiting for us with all the food on the table. Somemore of that ham hit the spot! As well as the chicken from Red Roaster, it was surprisingly good. A few Italian items were added to the spread which were very tasty as well (Franks famous roasted red capsicums (peppers)). After some desert, Cheese Cake and Ice Cream, which I never pass up cheese cake, I was ready for a little nap. Robert was at the table talking about family history, so I decide to see what the kids were up to. The were watching Ice Age II. I relaxed on the bed and watched with them, soon I realize I dozed off for a bit. The movie was over the they wanted to play cards, we played Go Fish, Rummy, and Scratch or Snap, can't seem to remember right now. A little game Jacinta made up.
Now realizing that time flies when you are having fun, we started to get a little tired and hungry again. It was 7:30PM, time to go back to Nadia and Luke's house. This time to a dark house. They went up the coast to Noosa to visit Luke's parents and took Giger with them.
I made some dinner, we watched one of Nadia's movies, added some more pictures to the blog and went to bed pretty late around 1AM. Long day.
