And there is not a moment to waste, it would seem, on the renovation front...as you will note from the images below:

|Replacing the rotted timber. He bought the timber just before the timber place shut at midday today!|
I asked Jason if it was plantation timber, but he didn't give me a direct answer so I suspect we have orangutan blood on our hands!
|Jason is realising the impromptu renovating is harder than he initially thought!|
You have to love his industrious ways.
There are many incomplete jobs to be finished around the house, so Jason will tackle those one by one. Our bedroom is only half painted, there is a half slab of concrete waiting to be smashed up and the deck painting will need to be finished. There is plenty to do and no time to get restless.
He assured me that tomorrow, Christmas Day, he won't do anything around the house. (Just between you and me, I'm assuming the inclement weather, with rain predicted, was responsible for that decision.)
We are having another quiet one here, at home. I know, we are a bit anti-social this time of year, preferring to socialise with family and friends after the Christmas period.
For us Christmas Day is for the children and for them to play at home...it is a nice way to spend the day, watching them play with their new toys while we slowly get sloshed.

Tonight I will be roasting a duck for our Christmas Eve dinner and making some profiteroles for dessert. Jason's work colleagues have generously provided our Christmas beverages again.
So, with that Jason and I will say cheers to you all.
Thank you for another fun year of blogging and for the fabulous comments. May the year 2011 be equally as fun.
