We have had a few friends drop in for christmas drinks and I found inspiration on Instagram for this lovely antipasto christmas wreath. The wreath is made from rosemary and I also tucked in some tarragon for a little more green. I filled the wreath with salami, cheese, cocktail onions (red and white) and also some stuffed baby capsicum.
As we are not going to be here for christmas I didn't really feel like erecting our christmas tree this year and I found this blossom tree in the "cheap" shop that has filled the gap nicely. I hung a couple of baubles from it and a bit of tinsel at the base and..... voilá.....I give you the christmas tree!
Julatten Ladies Christmas Lunch was a huge success this year with almost fifty ladies in attendance. Honestly, I don't know where all these ladies come from but I am not surprised as Julatten has a population of over 1000 and yet from my house I can only see a couple of houses in the distance. People are very spread out. The lunch at our local Highlander Tavern was delicious. There were numerous choices but I chose the Roast Turkey and I was not disappointed.
The wet season seems to have finally arrived albeit slowly! But we have had over 75mm of rain in the past week so it is a great start. We had a lovely rainbow pop up in front of us last week while we were having our sundowners. It wasn't a full rainbow but nonetheless quite lovely.
I will try and update the blog while we are away but if I don't I wish each and every one of my readers a very merry christmas and health and happiness for the new year ahead.
