Well, have you survived Christmas? We had four for lunch on Christmas Day and then for the evening meal there were seventeen of us. I cooked for both meals so spent the whole day with the oven going! We had roast turkey and roast pork with all the trimmings and my own handmade pudding for afterwards. Mum usually makes the white sauce/custard to go with it, but I've been making it for the last two years with no complaints yet, lol. We managed to make it to church for the morning service ( I sing in the choir) and back home in time to take the small turkey for lunch out of the oven and put the bigger one in.
It was a good day with family although my newest son-in-law seems to have lost his wedding ring. We didn't know until the next day so have now pulled all the lounge and seats to bits looking for it with no luck. Not under them either. He could have lost it anywhere between his place and his relatives in the morning and our place. He didn't notice until the next day that it had gone so really it could be anywhere!!!
Yesterday, my brother and Mum picked me up and we travelled to Wallaroo. It's a seaside town and took us between 1 1/2 - 2 hours travel time. The countryside is pretty boring - just paddocks mainly with a few small towns and it was so dry too! On the way back we saw the Country Fire Service putting out a fire in some of the paddocks bordering the road. They were lucky to catch it. We stopped on the way for a coffee break. My Aunty turned 70 and her daughter planned a lunch for her. She knew about some of the people coming but we kept it a secret that we were going to be there. It was a long day, leaving here about 9:50 and returning home about 6 p.m. I was still full from lunch so skipped tea!
