It is xmas eve here, and I doubt I will be posting tomorrow as we will be buried in torn xmas paper and eating inappropriate breakfast food, shortbread and chocolate mainly.
In the spirit of xmas here is one of the best Australian songs of all time, How to Make Gravy by the wonderful Paul Kelly.
It is a great song about being away from your family at xmas time, and, of course, how to make gravy “Just add flour, salt, a little red wine and don’t forget a dollop of tomato sauce for sweetness and that extra tang“.
Even though his live versions are always fantastic, I chose to post this film clip because they are singing on a rooftop under that most Aussie of xmas things, a tinsel adorned Hills Hoist.
I hope you all have a great day and that santa brings you exactly what you need. I have requested peace and happiness and a sleep-in.
With the kids already crying out in anguish “Oh why isn’t it xmas already!” at every turn I think the last is a little optimistic though…..
Merry xmas everyone 😀
