This has to be one of them. Its as close as you can get to a Snoopy's Christmas moment. when both sides of the House looked liked mates at a end of the year do giving each other gentle jibes.

It was fun, gentlemanly and bloody funny and a dam fine way to end the year.

We had called in to our favourite restaurant to have a quick bit to eat with some old scribes earlier today. Then we attended the annual Parliamentary Christmas Press Gallery knees up tonight. Arrived at seven with our host , one of the great political journalists of all time. We were privileged.

It was great to catch up with some old mates and people we admire from across the political spectrum. It was a good do. It will descend into delightful mayhem as the evening wears on. But tonight was our night to be sensible. Ma and Pa arrive in the morning in Bugsys Burrow off the Cook Strait Ferry. That signals the start of Xmas for us and family and friends. We will be surrounded by heaps of them over Xmas and we can't wait. It has been a long year and we are looking forward to seeing it out with the people who mean most to us.

I want to know why Nana Prawn (BB) is home blogging by 9.30pm when there is a party happening?
