It was proposed that we decorate our pods at work. I don’t sit in a pod so thought I was off the hook, then the people on the five loose desks near mine called a meeting to discuss ideas. Nobody had any, so I mentioned my hair-brained, elaborate plan of having one desk as a sleigh, pulled by the other desks. This was declared a great idea and with that it was on.
I now have this as my desk for the next two weeks. Will we win??
We noticed last year at work that one Christmas decoration was not all he seemed. He’s back for 2014 and pride of place on the tree.
You would be forgiven for thinking, if you live in Dunedin New Zealand, that you had teleported to a town in the Northern hemisphere and were in for a winter Christmas. We have had weeks of rain, wind and hail.
Today was supposed to be the start of summer, instead I packed a scarf for work this morning. However, as it was also the start of December we had the start of the festivities at work to warm our hearts.
Christmas bake-off brought out the creativity (and the laziness of people like me who chose to sample instead).
Santa knows everything and now I know how. He had been wedged behind a cabinet at work since January! Spying.
This is Tangaroa (God of the Sea and Fertility) celebrating Christmas in Rarotonga. It was odd to see Santa and tinsel in such a tropical place!
(He was wearing a red skirt today, but he is usually not so modest. He is the god of fertility after all…)
Spent the morning assembling my Hobbit Lego and greenhouse from Mr Pigalina, had lunch with his family and then a water fight at the park.
A great Christmas Eve relaxing at the beach and home.
Santa Paws modelling his gift from Mummy Pigalina.
One family Christmas down, two to go.
One of the houses in my ‘hood. I didn’t want to look like a weirdo taking a picture of someone’s house so not the best angle. A house in my street had a huge, inflatable, snow globe which is what I had set out to get a photo of but it was gone when I got home from work 😦
