Sorry to have missed my usual posts - I lost my Mojo!!!!!Yes, that's it, I knocked off work and just stopped everything. Blogging was one of those things that took a back seat. 2012 has been one of the most busiest working years I can remember in my 16 years with the company. I guess I shouldn't complain - many companies are finding that the economy is slower than previous. It will be interesting to see how our retail sector performs after all the post Christmas sales.
Again I digress - it happens often at my age..........
So what have we been up to since December 21st - our last post. Shopping, cooking, eating, drinking, riding and relaxing.
Oh, yes and enjoying family. Our son Andrew is home from England for Christmas. Our other son has a friend he met in Montreal staying with us until the first week of January.
I thought I would just post some pictures of the last week.
My first day of rest involved - naturally a ride on my favorite piece of road with what I believe meets the expectations of any place in the world - sometimes because I ride this piece of road several times a week, I take it for granted.
|It's summer in Bayside Mentone and there's no better place for me than to be riding my bike om Beach Road.|
|Even an Angel needs his after ride caffeine.|
|In fact the whole crew enjoy their after ride coffee - it's a Melbourne tradition.|

Our big festive meal is Christmas day. However with our Canadian friend staying and unable to have Christmas lunch with us due to an invitation from other Aussie friends, we decided to treat him to a Christmas Eve meal.
|Mussels done in Sue's special way.|
|And then, tiger prawns.|
|Enjoyed with a salad of lettuce, beetroot, walnuts and feta cheese and a drizzle of olive oil.|
|To cleanse the palette, nectarine, grapes, cherries, and cantaloupe or rock melon.|
There is only one resolution and that is to enjoy family, friends and life. Oh yes, and to get back to regular blogging.
Hope your festive season has been as enjoyable as ours. Tomorrow is Funky Friday..........
