Christmas Wishes To All

Wishing all my readers a very Merry Christmas from the great southern land.  I hope you all have a wonderful day filled with lots of laughter and merriment, great food and fond memories.

I thought I'd add one of our silly Aussie Christmas Carols to my post today.  Sing along! 




Deck the sheds with bits of wattle, fa la la la la, la la la la,
Whack some gum leaves in a bottle, fa la la la la, la la la la,
All the shops are open Sundies, fa la la la la, la la la la,
Buy your Dad some socks and undies, fa la la la la, la la la la.

Deck the sheds with bits of gumtree, fa la la la la, la la, la la,
Hang the deco's off the plum tree, fa la la la la, la la la la,
Plant some kisses on the missus, fa la la la la, la la la la,
Have a ripper Aussie Christmas, fa la la la la, la la la la.

Say g'day to friends and rellies, fa la la la, la la la la,
Wave them off with bulging bellies, fa la la la, la la la la la,
Kids and babies, youngies, oldies, fa la la la, la la la la,
May your fridge be full of coldies, fa la la la, la la la la la.

Chop the wood and stoke the barbie, fa la la la la, la la la la,
Ring the folks in Abudabe, fa la la la la, la la la la,
Pop the stuffing in the turkey, fa la la la la, la la la la,
Little Mary's feeling ercky, fa la la la la, la la la la.

Rally rally round the table, fa la la la la, la la la la,
Fill your belly while you're able, fa la la la la, la la la la,
Joyce and Joaney, Dave and Darryl, fa la la la la, la la la la,
Sing an Aussie Christmas carol, fa la la la la, la la la la.

    1. It's hot and steamy here, Anna, typical for our Christmas here. We will still sit down to a fabulous Christmas dinner with all the trimmings though. There's just nothing better, even in the heat and humidity. Enjoy your cold and snowy Christmas.

    1. Blembry, it's hot and steamy here. That's our usual Christmas weather. I've never experienced a white Christmas and it's on my bucket list. Enjoy yours.

    1. Thank you so much, David. I wish you and yours all the very best in the coming new year too. I'm so looking forward to getting back home. I've been away a while and getting worried about the garden. I'm afraid my darling other half doesn't have the same love of gardening as I do, and finds caring for it rather tiresome. I think I'll have a bit of work to do when I get back.

    1. I am having a lovely Christmas break, thanks Jennifer. It was a little stressful a couple of weeks ago, but thankfully things have settled down now and I'm actually getting to put my feet up and relax a bit. Every other week I also get to spend time with my precious grandchildren which is a real bonus.

  11. Now I'm going to be singing that version of it for the rest of the day - LOL! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Bernie and that your New Year is a good one.

    1. Thanks Jayne for your Christmas wishes. It was a lovely day thank you, all the more enjoyable because I got to spend part of the day with my grandchildren. I'm still away from home and away from garden, and I think the poor garden is starting to suffer a bit. I'm not sure what will greet me when I finally return. Fingers crossed it's not too bad.

    I'm looking forward to following along to see what grows in your part of the world. Happy Holidays!

    1. Thanks for visiting, Ricki. I'm on a bit of a hiatus at the moment as it's our long school holidays. I'm just popping in occasionally to check out comments, but I will be back adding posts in the new year.
