Christmas episode 2


I was lucky enough to have capable people for guests for little did they know that they would have to cook the dinner, me being so ill. They younger brigade set the table while the older ones cooked. They had travelled from all over Australia to spend Christmas Day with us. They came from Darwin, Brisbane, Alice Springs, Canberra and Adelaide.

All seated and ready to hop into a good lunch, the table groaning with food.

But not before a check that every thing is OK by "Olive & Popeye"

Time to pop the bon-bons open (made from scratch by me) which I think were the "hit" of the day, with most people that is, you can't please everyone all of the time. Ha-ha

It seems like it was pretty good, not much left behind. Personally, I had only a bite of potato and a sniff of chicken. The day finished for me by being admitted to hospital with pnuemonia and a kidney infection that caused my heart beat to elevate to an alarming speed. I'm home again now, but not much better, at least the Pnuemonia has been laid to rest.

Tummies full and time for a rest, these two newlyweds find acomfy spot.
