On On: Lake Leschenaultia
Today we celebrated Christmas, but it was also GPS’s 10th anniversary with Hills Hash. So to mark the occasion he sent us off around the lake to suffer under the blazing sun.
Luckily, he let us do less of it than usual, and in short we returned to the eskis and finger foods.
Kidlets waded and paddled on the lip of the lake. Beverages were consumed and nibblies were nibbled. Being a celebratory kind of day our numbers were well stocked, and I must say it was a very pleasant afternoon there on the grass. Jolly old Saint Nic turned up, and then another smaller one as well, who–rather inexplicably–began to disrobe, revealing himself to actually be the small female child known as Jessie.
So the presents were given and dinner was splayed out–and in response we ate it. Those who had room gobbled down desserts, and then our numbers gradually dwindled as we approached the end of day. Until just Pink Bits was left, gathering up her things and hoping she still had her car keys. (I hope she did, or she is probably still there.)
A lovely day, and special thanks to everyone who helped it happen.
P.S. I’ll add pics as they arrive. If you have any good ones, email them to me.
P.P.S. March Flies: I hate you. One day I will train my friends the bull ants to fly, and then you’ll be in strife! Until then I will dream about the forty or fifty of you that I swatted today.
[Answer of the day: X represents the Greek letter Chi, which means Christ–or so my friend Google told me (although, sometimes my friend Google has been known to exaggerate quite a bit.]
