Christmas break

Author: Helen

The dawn raid on the Bakhtiyari family (OK, Amanda, so the sun was up and it was technically a breakfast raid. Big deal) and their summary reincarceration and deportation has made me even more cynical and “bah, humbug” about the whole thing. As celebrated in Australia, that is. Christmas? Christian? Huh! But you can’t live with a seven year old boy and maintain the Grinchiness for long. And the smell of the pine tree always gets me.

I probably won’t be posting for a couple of days…Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or the ancient worship of the sacred grove, I wish ALL OF YOU a very safe and happy time. Don’t get killed on the road, and don’t blow a gasket with your more clueless inlaws or relatives.
