THE YAAN.

Evening, Friends. A quiet night. I am not actually upset with anyone tonight. How good is that ? I have been upset with people and places and things for what seems to be forever. I was out in the Bush for Christmas and having a truly good time but now I am thinking of DOLLS. The Cheery Redhead received this beautiful doll from Santa Claus and I have been thinking of the Doll I had when I was little. I wasn’t a very Dolly sort of little girl but I did have ONE doll. She was rather beautiful.  Her eyes open and closed and she cried when you picked her up. Kati B spent a lot of time finding a doll whose eyes opened and closed and who was pretty.

I think I only ever had ONE doll. They had hospitals for dolls then and we were very faithful. I liked the ones who drank a bottle and then wet their nappy.

The Cheery Redhead’s new doll is one of those special dolls.

As for the rest of the day. it was one classic Australian Xmas Day – just a little gentler – a little more moderate in temperature and mood than it sometimes is. Thanks Brierfield people.
