Well the weather outside is delightful, we have settled into a pattern of cool strong sea breezes and a bit of overcast, the odd short sharp shower. Yes the cycling kit still splats when it hits the floor, but it is summer after all. The air con has been off all week though, and I am relieved.
It is a bit hard to wrap your brain around Christmas when it is summer. Yes there are lots of boozy parties, strange seasonal finger foods like cheerios
Which are like small red hot dogs, but not as nice. This is the one time of the year when you see them served in preference to snags (BBQ sausages). Tomorrow we will do the boozy lunch thing at work, and next week you should be able to fire a cannon at the Uni and not hit anybody, even I am staying home, I think this is the first time I haven't worked til Christmas eve but meh....
So I'll have time for some cycling! I intend to cycle, bake, nap, cuddle my dog on what is probably his last Christmas, and generally chill out. Bliss. Life is good.
