OMG! It's Christmas!

Yes, it's that time of year where we're all shocked to find ourselves in December again. The Christmas decorations have gone up, the cards are starting to arrive in the mail from very organised people, it's getting hot and stormy and the kids don't disappear off to school in the morning and leave you alone until 3pm.

I took this photo the other morning on my way in to work the sky was just lovely and the tree and Treasury Casino looked so good, I whipped my camera out of my bag (I take my camera everywhere) and snapped off a couple of shots.

I was in the US this time last year. San Francisco on the 5th of December, which was awesome. Mythbuster territory. It was clear and cool and rather delicious.

I spent Christmas in Michigan, and was lucky enough to have a white Christmas. Christmas in the US is absolutely magical, they really know how to do it over there. It's like one of those Christmas specials you see on TV - all warm and fuzzy and merry. I'd happily spend every Christmas in the US, no problem at all. Mostly because I hate Summer.

So who is coming to the BCCLS Christmas picnic next Sunday? The email went out to everyone a couple of weeks ago, but if you need the details, email me. I'll be there, and I hope to see lots of other folks there.
