Journal Entry:
Christmas day. Breakfast of various treats - chocolates, cakes, etc. I got a Christmas card with a scratch lotto ticket in it and won eight dollars! Lounged around drinking Champaign then Sof and Chris went to Chris' family's Christmas. I went for a walk to the beach and along the shore of Bouddi National Park with Albert and Judy (Sof's parents). After the walk had a fantastic Christmas feat - turkey, chicken, many vegetables, and all topped off with Christmas pudding - though my piece didn't have any coins in it.

Spent the afternoon hanging out talking then rested, called home, and worked on my Icon program. In the evening Chris and Sof came back and then Chris' parents and Laura (his sister) came by. Laura gave me an excellent Christmas present - a map of Sydney on a handkerchief! Chris, Albert and I spent a bit of time cleaning up the boat so it would be ready for skiing tomorrow. When Chris' family left we ate a bit of leftovers then had margaritas. Albert and I sat up late again finishing off the pitcher (made to much again...)
