Jesus had a birthday and I got all the presents

I walked away from Christmas day a little bit pissy and with a nice stash of presents. The most lovely and thoughtful was a little vintage doll dressed in traditional Saami get-up. I got old books for my REread stuff, some pearls, and a Leunig book. Sybil got a vintage copy of Catcher in the rye. She can't read yet so I may have to read it out loud to her. And Popular Penguins were a big hit ...

I also bought myself a wonderful new toy, a Lumix FZ35. Still figuring out how it all works etc. yet from the few photos I have taken yesterday it looks to be a nice little camera.

I am thinking of a new blog, I have had this idea floating around for a while. The concept was 'conceptualised' one Friday night after a few $2 champagnes at the Fox (classy lady). I was waiting for the bus at the cultural center and just marvelling at the weird outfit ensembles that were also riding public transport.

In the new year I will get the blog up an running ... You wear me out, Brisbane. Hopefully the first post will have a few good images courtesy of the new snapper.

Also comment here for a chance to win a heart! or leave a comment on the original giveaway post below. See you in the new year.

Good for you for getting Jesus' presents. I think they suit you better.
