Its almost Christmas and I'm pretty sure my brother doesn't check this blog - I sent it late so I hope it arrives in time for him to have some use of a Darth Vader ornament for his Christmas tree. I'm off to Christchurch today so I've lined up a few posts to publish while I'm away - I can't wait to show you what I bought people for Christmas. I finally convinced my mother this weekend to open the box I sent all the presents in so she could see the wrapping paper. I had such a lovely time wrapping them all and it was a miserable day so it felt a bit more like Christmas. Christmas in the summer sun is still very strange for me!
