Well, its been a long time coming but in the last week, we have doubled our cricket watch count to 4!
Yes, you guessed it, we saw some more of Englands finest (well, I suppose thats not saying much but heh!) cricketers today while we were ambling around the centre of Melbourne looking for some swanky clubbing gear. Matthew Hoggard was the first to fall into Pols Celeb Radar and Pol feels that TV does not do him any favours.. he has a "rather pert bottom" and is not as fat as he looks! After some stalking to certify our kill, Pol moved onto some serious shopping while i sauntered to the tram stop to head home. And who should i see in Federation square... none other than Englands Young Cricketer of the Year.... Alastair Cook and his better half! Gosh.. i feel complete now, all i need to see is the poor excuse for a wicket keeper (Geraint Jones!) and ill be happy!
Other news.. Off to see a Dance diva tonight (Inaya Day) courtesy of our Landlord Sean.. we are waiting to go out at the minute so have been sinking the Gin and Tonics and wont be going till 12.30am
Thats your lot for your post Xmas blog... take care all i hope Santa is kind and gives you all what you want (sorry, Pol and i are too big to fit in his sack!) and please spare us a thought on JC's birthday as we will be on the beach while you all are in miserable blighty

Good night and God bless us all

Polly and Ali

Well Ali me lad........Christmas day on the beach eh? Do they do the Turkey bit on the beach? Dave and I spent today visiting mum dad auntie Audrey and playing Santa. It is now 9.10 and we have Peter Pan lined up on DVD to get us into kid like mode. I am missing having the family home and it is a sureal feeling. ba humbug. As usual I have over spent and most of it on food we will not eat. I have dad, wend and co, sara and David on Boxing day but I am doing curry ect and picky bits. I have Tuna steaks in the freezer and wish you and Pol were here to cook them for me. I bought a huge piece of lamb for tomorrow, Xmas Eve, but noone will be coming to eat it. Habits die hard and I am a wee bit sad here tonight. David has gone into depressed mode and wonders what it is all about. lol x
I guess I would rather be there with you in the sun instead of the mist and fog of old england.
Nanna goes into hospital on Wednesday, I am not holding my breath but if they could help her to be calmer it would be a blessing.
I will miss you Ali but would not want you to miss this experience for anything. Have a great Christmas and a not too drunk New Year.
Love Mum.
