Tick tick tick - Not long to wait now. The Biscuit bunch are all set for Christmas: School is out and skateboarding is the preferred holiday activity. My mum is off to S.A. to spend Christmas with her sister and my brother. We are gearing up for a boxing day departure to the South Island for a tramp in Abel Tasman park followed by some R&R with the Beeby’s in Timaru. We have been enjoying an unusually warm and sunny December with crossed fingers that the sun holds the clouds away over the next 8 weeks and preferably longer.. May the T-shirts and BBQ’s reign – bring on the beach weather.
