(*) Connected to the fan

Well, mum's place has finally sold today... $25k less than we anticipated, but it's sold - that's the main thing. My brother and I are just happy and also mixed feelings - it's like the very last thing to wrap up after mum passed away back in April... hmmm...
Haven't seen the boys for two weeks - yes, it's the middle of the school holidays but for two weeks keep getting the 'raincheck' message - too much happening, apparently. Next week onwards is looking better tho - bout fucking time! heh heh. They're well... SJ won't go swimming in their dam again for a while... discovered the hard way that Yabbies (like a freswater crayfish) like toes to nip on! He's not hurt, just shaken!
Went sailing on the 2nd day of the year - and as I'm pulling my boat up the beach - I accidently snapped the rudder! Took some serious glue but it seems all fixed again now. Sailing again this Sunday with two races again... lovin' it. The boys' mum refuses to allow them anywhere near the dam where we all go sailing... just being overprotective... give her a year or two... but sailing is majestic fun for me... absolutely lovin' it!
I had the best Xmas in 4 years... just hanging out with my brother was really really relaxing and refreshing for two days in a row. Even had a few people her for New Years' Eve for a BBQ and a laff... lots of fun. Yeah, this festive season's been one of the best ones for many a year for me here - yay! 'bout bloody time, eh? heh heh. I haven't even pulled the Xmas Tree down yet... the lights are connected to the fan, so... what's the hurry?
I spent a few days casual fruit packing (early-season peaches) in a large steel shed in the middle of a stinking hot sumer... needless to say it wasn't too much fun... everyone was having a hard time of it... tempers were short... not the most pleasant environment to work in... thankfully that's over with for now.
