Merry Christmas + A Happy New Year Ginoid!
Al the best for 2007 from Down Under. Sounds like you're having great time - the 'no fuss' pre-Christmas thing was similar out here too AND IT WAS GREAT! I even went shopping on Christmas Eve and had no queues. (Granted that was at about 8.30am!!) We're having a grand time - on hols for a couple of weeks so heading to Melbourne next week for our first real trip. We'll be sunbaking for a few days before that. Enjoy!
Love Hazel + Al xxxxx
