My Christ­mas wish list:

1. That my chil­dren are de­lighted with the treats Santa brings even if it doesn’t in­clude phones and iPads.

2. That the fact that we can spread the Xmas Eve food shop­pers across three su­per­mar­kets in Queen­stown means we will be able to avoid the hor­ren­dous queues and im­pa­tience of the past.

3. That my fam­ily, friends and every­one else have a re­ally safe hol­i­day pe­riod. The world does not need any more bad news.

4. That driv­ers on all of our roads are re­spect­ful, care­ful, pa­tient and mind­ful of each other. A lit­tle kind­ness goes a long way when things are tense.

5. That the sun shines and that the wind set­tles in the en­su­ing weeks so that we can en­joy a camp­ing hol­i­day with­out any­thing held by pegs blow­ing away. And we can use the boat my hus­band has de­voted so much time to re­pair­ing.

Merry Christ­mas all...
