It's just pointless...

...trying to go to the gym as we are far too busy enjoying ourselves, over eating and celebrating. We enjoyed a Winter Crew meal on Friday night. The food was amazing with scollop's, turkey, salmon and chocolate cake and desert wines. A really great evening complete with Christmas crackers ?. This morning we had a Champagne breakfast, more celebrating since our numbers will increase to 41 tomorrow with the first of the flights, a great way to spend Sunday since the weather is again bad and we are confined, not that any of us need to go out.

We visited McMurdo yesterday for last minute shopping and everyone will get a T-shirt or a T-shirt and quiet possibly if they are very lucky a T-shirt....

I asked Fiona if the top I was holding was a nice colour or had I been here too long. She advised me that I had been here too long and move away from the nasty pink top...
It was dangerous as I armed myself with a basket and anounced I had my credit card.

Meanwhile back at base to amuse ourselves....


Clive with the help of base members made a movie for the McMurdo Film Festival called "When Spuds go Bad".
It had to include an action figure or soft toy, a fork and the line - "It is but a scratch" we all had fun partaking and it turned out really funny and won all the prizes.
