Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! It's morning here and I've just spent an hour on the phone to family. I'm off to church soon and then friends are coming over to eat at three.

A lot of food preparation has been going on and the gingerbread people have made a reappearance. Last year someone suggested that the character you chose reflected your future partner. With that in mind, we've tried to cater to a range of tastes. It may look like sexism is at work but it's very hard to make these things look female without putting them in swimwear:

Guess which one didn't get chosen!

My Guess, the sexy pants but fataliy boring accountant/lawyer with that briefcase of cash??

MERRY CHRISTMAS guys, wish I was there (kinda). Family Xmas in Sydney was wonderful. Splitting life around the world is too hard.....!!

No, the corporate gingerbread man is always the most popular! I think PGL had him. He and the bikini girl were chosen first.

The burnt ones from last year amused me to no end. If I ever come to visit you've got to promise to make me some super tanned gingerbread men and women.

Yes I took Mr Corporate home, how could I resist with his smart suit. I promise it wasn't the suitcase of money that got me. Really it wasn't ;) I think Ms Saggy with her mascara-ed lashes and plump lips is quite up there too!

Well, she is still here in her zip-lock bag feeling very rejected. I guess that she is the real winner, however, because she will have to fly with us to Lisbon to be consumed there.

If you ever bake one for me, you'll have to make a gingerbread man with lots of biceps and perhaps bake an extra strip that's to be decorated as a paddle. heehee.
