Christmas was at home in Yagoona (my hometown, out in the western suburbs of Sydney) this year – which meant we could avoid the always-horrible Christmas Day traffic – with friends and family. The weather was perfect, the food was good, and the company sensational. Couldn’t have asked for much more than that!
MERRY CHRISTMAS from the Kitchener’s!
