Here is our 2014 Xmas photo, although a few ladies were missing due to illness.
Sorry, I am looking a bit stern in the photo, as one of my girlfriends had just been talking about all the sucking in, sitting up, jutting your chin forward, etc. that you should do to make yourself look better in the photo (when you are our age), so I was so busy doing all that, that I forgot to smile and look happy - lol!
We had dinner at the home of one of the ladies, doesn't the table look pretty?
The meal was fully catered by this most amazing cook. First course was a delicious array of canapes (no photo, sorry), ranging from smoked salmon on mini rosti to the most delicious minced lamb filo parcels.
For main I had the poached salmon ....
Whilst the other choice was Duck with Asian salad.
... and dessert was so gorgeous.... Passionfruit souffle!
There was also a choice of a lemon ricotta cake but again, sorry no pic.
Oh, amongst all the laughter and reminiscing, we did manage to talk about the book! It was Indelible Ink by Fiona McGregor, if anyone is interested.
All in all, a fabulous evening.
Love you, book club girls. Here's to another 17 years.
