Happy New Year

Here's our very own Christmas Angel. Jaxi knows exactly what to do with those decorations. It is the night after Christmas and all through the house Nothing is stirring, not even a mouse The turkey's been eaten, the presents unwrapped And all Santa's helpers are taking a nap Now that the fireworks have died away and the evil spirits have been well and truly intimidated, it's 2007 and time to wish you all HAPPY NEW YEAR , GOOD HEALTH and GOOD LUCK for any new or ongoing endeavours. Forget all those resolutions. Just do it and enjoy it. I really love the Japanese New Year custom of having Old Year Forgetting parties so that each New Year is an entirely new beginning. December has been a really busy month with lots of comings and goings. Most members of this somewhat peripatetic family were here for Christmas including baby Jaxi and her proud parents and my son Cluan, who now lives in Canberra. Ross is missing as usual at this time of year
