Last night Diane and I had two dear friends (my John Curtin teaching mate and his wife) over for a simple little backyard meal because we have not seen them in weeks.
Diane put together a platter of sliced ham, Wagu beef several cheeses, a nut and herb dip. dried olives and some nuts; all washed down with some celebratory champs and a Kiwi Saugvinon Blanc for the meal.
Robin brought over a Pavlova for dessert and a meal was made.
We had much talking, much eating and general Christmas cheer!
