Hey all, hope all is well with you.
We have just said goodbye to Paul’s parents as well as Amy and Katie.
It’s Katie’s birthday in a few days and Gwen wanted to see the girls as it’s been so long.
This morning Paul and I had fruit and nuts for breakfast, knowing the day was gonna be full on, until family arrived and we’d finished preparing all foods.
It did the job, no hunger pangs getting in the way of necessary work.
So, shopping, home, greek salad and fruit salad prepared, burger mix prepped yesterday shaped into patties, alcohol free punch made (though Gwen and I may have slipped a bit of rum in a couple of ours 😁), cheeses, chutneys sorted, cakes and flapjacks presented, KFC style chicken cooked in oven, burgers and turkey sausages barbecued. Actually, would have been much easier to give a pic!
Lots of unhealthy foods, but lots of healthy or healthier foods too, life has still to be lived, balance is key.
We all ate well, Katie appreciated the banana loaf cupcakes, especially as in one we stuck in a couple of candles 😀
Remaining foods have been doggy bagged out to both households. Interestingly, nobody touched the crisps, for adult only gatherings I shall remember not to buy any.
The day was mostly warm if a bit blustery at times, but we all liked being outside. It did start to rain for a while so then we relaxed inside.
It was lovely catching up, not so much me and Paul because we’re in contact with both households, but for the girls and Amy’s grandparents.
Anyway, nothing else to report.
