Buon Natale!

It's a bit of a windy day in Nuova Lazio and it looks like it could rain.
I'm writing before 7am.

Our preferred dry weather option for Christmas lunch.
As I write the big jobs of preparing breakfast and Christmas lunch lie ahead.
This is a day for being jolly and saying Merry Christmas to everyone one meets or has a quick encounter with.
Uncle Steve is already up so I'm not feeling lonely.
The book is working though and he's occupied.
After a while Christmas days tend to run into each other a bit. I suppose it must be worse for Angry Jesus because this is his 2017th in a row.

"I'm popping around to Richard (of RBB)'s today.
I bet it will be bloody lasagna and pizza again!"
I think that most of the Bass Bagging Confederation will be popping in today. We'll need a very big lasagna and lots of pizza. Phillip Nis will be in Auckland, but I think we'll survive him not being here. Bunny said he's off to a barbeque in Naenae. Again I think we'll survive. I wonder if they barbeque carrots in Naenae? Terry McDougal will turn up but he never brings anything and drinks most of the beer. I must be honest and say it's not good to get stuck in a corner with him after he's downed a few. I'll introduce him to Uncle Steve.
Dave Shaw's flight from Dunedin has been delayed. He'll need to be picked up from the airport at some point. Bin said he'd do that. He'll head straight for my bass when he arrives. Dave has a healthy ego but he can't play jazz so he probably won't be jamming with us. George will play bass for the jam. I've put Dave in the same room as Uncle Steve. Call it revenge if you want but we haven't got that much room. I don't know if Different Time Zone Bill will show up - he's probably having Christmas dinner right now in some time zone as I write. Akish can be a bit of a pain at Christmas. He's a hard guest to satisfy - there always seems to be something wrong.

Anyway, I hope you all have a good day out there. Be nice to each other.
Buon Natale. Auguri a te e a tutti i tuoi cari.

Light summer NZ theme but, get this - Italian trifle! Yummy, light and delicious.

What are labels for?
