A summer Christmas

A beautiful, sunny day in Hobart after a windy night which dried my washing drip drying in the wind.  I've already placed another load outside to dry fast in the sunshine.

I'm listening to Spotify music on my smart phone and finishing my second cup of coffee in my pink mug received a few Christmases ago.

I forget that I can stream music now with unlimited broadband, at the moment there is the odd commercial because I am not paying premium.  I will pay for the service if I use it more.  The cafe chill song mix was making me feel a little blue, so I've changed to one of their Christmas channels.

I started the day woken by The Head Gardener in an unusually chatty mood (for the hour) while I was under-caffeinated for the conversation.  After a minute I was a little more lucid.  I'll tell you what woke me up, having to report an incident to police.  Honestly, that will get the adrenaline going. Other people turn a blind eye but my concerns were definitely worth getting the police to follow up.

On a more cheerful note, I thought you might like some Christmas decoration inspiration:
