So that's Christmas done with then. For us it meant the usual consumption of food and drink, with the added bonus of aches and muscle spasms. Because this year, we got a Wii.

Don't get me wrong, it's great. We got a selection of games that everyone could play and a fun time was had by the entire crowd of family and friends with whom we spent Christmas Day. The problem is that after a few hours of boxing, bowling and lightsaber duelling, my shoulders and arms started to feel like they'd been beaten with a sockful of loose change. The damn thing really ought to come with a health warning (Do Not Operate to Excess. Do Not Operate Under the Influence of Alcohol).

Apart from that, it's been reasonably quiet and enjoyable, as Christmases go. Not everyone was so lucky, however, with a fatal shark attack just 15 minutes up the coast from where we went to the beach on Boxing Day. Puts that post I made a few days back about Australia's dangerous wildlife into perspective.

Apart from that it's back to work today - there's still a bit to do yet before New Year kicks in. More later.

True enough - it's funny for a bit ("I'm going to play with my Wii") but then the muscle cramps kick in ...
