Sunshine & Family

Yesterday was simply magic!

During the week, I found a menu for a picnic put together by Nigella Lawson, so yesterday morning Paul and I hit the kitchen and cooked up a storm: pork, chicken, greek salad, pea and parmisan cheese fritattas, a choc-hazelnut cake and patty cakes. Complemented with crispy bread rolls, ginger beer and creaming soda, we were ready for a feast!

The magic was more than good food. The day started out at 11C but it progressed to a glorious 30C so the magnificent Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens (where we were married last August) were a must. The company of Miranda, David and Sammi was also awesome. It's always great to catch up with what's happening with them.

Then last night Paul and I went to the cinema with friends. We saw The Inside Man . I was thoroughly entertained. I'm not going to tell you the plot, but will say that the theme of Nazi holocaust and associated looting of Jews' possessions by soldiers and Swiss banks figured prominently. Supper at the 'Pig n Whistle' finished off a wonderful day.

My advice, dear reader, is to take a day out of your routine and get away from it all. The change really is as good as a mini holiday.

Happiness and laughter always,
