To all our "Family" here on HU whether you be in the UK..USA..Africa..NZ or other parts of the globe, Susan and I would like to wish you all a Merry CHRISTmas and a safe 2017.

We have awakened this CHRISTmas morn exchanged gifts and now preparing the spit roast for our family gathering at lunch time.

Last night (CHRISTmas eve) we entertained about 600 visitors who came to share some cake and drink with us. A beautiful night..matched by perfect weather. (Why can't mankind be this well mannered every day)

Today we are having a HOT day 36c. (96.8f)

Sadly this is our last year of doing the CHRISTmas lights as age has caught up with me.

We pray that you good folk will also have perfect weather for tomorrow when the old man in the red pajamas drops in.

GOD bless

Susan & Will

    Nice to hear from you, I did send you an email earlier about catching up in the Alfred. (We were there last week.

    We will be in there in 2 weeks time.

    I will let you know a little closer to the day.

    I was a little concerned when you did not reply to my earlier email, but figured that you may have been busy.

    If you are able to visit us we would love to see you, pref boxing night, as the lights will be on.

    Susan sends her love and is looking forward to catching up.

    Take care of yourself Peter.

    Up with the birds Eh...At least you looked for need..haven't been a good boy this year.

    Like you I wish the entire human race Peace...even if we could do it just on this special day.

    The police foiled a major terrorist threat here two days was the main cathedral..during the packed CHRISTmas day service, along with other heavily visited places.

    Oh... when will the countries leaders invoke the death sentence for treason.

    Enough of my soap box ..... Please enjoy today...and I hope Santa gave you every thing you deserved

    Merry CHRISTmas Velvet & Mr V


  • Hi Will

    How l agree with you.

    Today is supposed to be peace on earth to all men, if only that could come true.

    Let's not forget all the good people in our world, evil will never win.

    8am now and Mr V is still snoring...L think he drank the very large Whiskey l left out for Santa last night πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    If he doesn't wake up soon, l am going to put Cisk our puppy down the bed...He has very sharp needle teeth and is always looking for something to chew πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ That will make him wake up when he gets his ' Baubles ' nipped πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Ho ho ho πŸŽ…


  • Ouch!!

    Enjoy your day as we say goodbye to ours

    Still very hot here


  • Bless you both and have a wonderful time. Too hot for us in Australia. Xxxx

  • Hi Will and Susan. Cheers from Tassie where we are experiencing a heat wave at the moment. Extremely hot and humid. All the best. Gerald.

  • Thank you Gerald.

    We are known as the sun burnt country and today we really lived up to our reputation.

    Last week we had all 4 seasons in one day...Only found in Victoria.

    I trust you had an enjoyable day.


  • Thanks Will. The heat is a little unbearable at the moment. Hopefully it will get a little cooler soon. Gerald

  • Thanks Mate

    I could not agree more

    We are blessed with a great ducted evaporative air con which has been working on max for the day.

    It is a little cooler here at the moment with the sun slowing falling.

    By chance did you manage to see the space station last night?

    It looked like a plane high in the heavens, moving at an unbelievable speed.

    Time to lock up the animals

    Enjoy the evening Gerald


  • Thank you Sassy

    Too hot for me also

    Stayed indoors most of the day with the air con going full pace.

    The grand kids had a ball after opening their presents they played in an inflatable pool supplied by of one my children.

    The sun is slowing dropping and hopefully relief is in sight. Will still remain humid overnight.

    GOD Bless
