Merry Christmas and a happy new year to all our friends out there.
Love to you all.
Mahdi has a new friend, Murphy. He is named after Greg Murphy the V8 supercar driver.
It's 6.15 pm. The new potatoes are cooking, the lamb is in the oven, Jonts is cooking some ham steaks and the table is laden with food and wine.
