A free escorted visit to the park, and now I am going to be escorted to the ocean. Probably get escorted to an ice cream shop too.

Couple of PC games - the boy will have those.
Chocolates.
A few bits and bobs for around the house.

And feeling stuffed from eating and drinking to much (wont do that again - till tomorrow) :lol:

We may look at getting a new bigger BBQ tomorrow - Mrs said a few places are having big sales.

Run off my feet.
Slung in the ocean.
Over fed at lunchtime.
Some more running around like a lunatic.
Now threatened with a roast pork meal - and maybe a beer or two.

This is what I did today:



I get one of those containers a day now, chopped the **** out of them and there's still loads.

My neighbour over the fence now has a raspberry patch too.
Ooops......

More chocolate. More cash. A Santa hat, just as Christmas is winding down.

Oh well, now I'm only $150 off a Flip Mino HD :D

Yum - I'm picking raspberries here too! Not as many as you though - lucky if I get a container like that a week!! (Only a few canes though, but more every year!)

Chocolate (which, of course, becomes "family" chocolate as soon as it's opened)
Books (Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman's adventures through Africa and Boorman's trip to Aussie)
A shirt (too small, so immediately becomes property of my 15 year old son)
6 x 570ml red wine glasses
A new beach towel (to replace my last beach towel, which I was given as a 21st birthday present, and is - shock! horror! - threadbare)

And over-fed: steak, sausages, guacamole, fancy bread, green stuff (AKA 'salad', I understand), beer, pavlova and strawberries - plenty left for a picnic tomorrow...

Got an empty box that had my PlayTV which arrived a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't wait to open.

A foot bath/massager from Santa Pictur frames from Son/D in L and a notebook from Grandaughter.

To much food as usual - but had a great Christmas with family and friends.

How's the playtv going?

Brilliant - except it has only a few hours ahead on the EPG. Great interface and simple to use. Only can record 1 channel at a time but you can watch another or previously recorded stuff. When they get the EPG sorted with Freeview it should be released for sale here. The Freeview EPG will degrade it though as it is pretty crap, but I believe Sony is looking to a software solution using the info but showing their own EPG. Who knows??

If you have a PS3 it is really cheap way of going the PVR way. Cost me $143 all up from "My Memory" in the UK (Channel Islands) and arrived in 5 days from ordering. Setup was simple and a firmware (1.21) download is needed to see NZ stuff. That is easy to do as well.

In all... chuffed with it!

Interesting. Let me know how they progress.
I'd tried it up there but raspberries like to be frosted when dormant.

SWMBO bought me a plant a couple of year ago that fruits Spring and Autumn (however my experience is that it doesn't actually stop fruiting except in Winter). I usually get enough fruit for a couple of desserts a week (which suits me fine because I'm the only one who like them).

The raspberries area little larger - almost like small boysenberry size - and a little darker than traditional berries, but just as tasty!!!

Thank you beetle.
Because of the risk of infection I spent the Xmas on my own. My wife and her son are in Russia this Xmas but I will visit my only remaining daughter for New Year.
I will have another Xmas in Russia when I get there mid April.

I loved to read about your presents from you kiddies, bought back lots of memories and happier days when I had three kiddies who did similar things. I still have a lot of the home made cards and things they made. I value them far more than anything they could have purchased. Keep yours in a safe place.

Brought myself a $30 dvd player a couple of days ago. I guess that counts, right? Unfortunately the internals are too small and uninteresting to do anything with.

Oh, and a 2200uf capacitor from jaycar. Got an amp thats got a ruptured one. Truly spectacular failure too.
