2013 Begins!

We hosted a cocktail party on New Year’s Eve, with the cocktails provided by a friend. Here is a photo of the menu — what would you have chosen? (I can recommend the Ferreira Roche.)

On the evening of January 1 we went to the food and fireworks at Port Vincent, which is an annual event. Here is a beach photograph:

The next major event (on January 3) was the arrival of some extended family. My cousin Robert, his wife Katrina and their three children (ages 4-12) have just moved to a town not far from here, and the kids stayed with us for a few days while the parents got the new house ready.

I’d previously helped to make some mini-puddings (rolled-up balls made from fruitcake and brandy) and give them faces. Here they are:

Here’s a photo of the three kids playing on the backyard waterslide (with Mum supervising):

And here are a couple of pictures from the back seat of the car when we went to visit their new home:

Most of what we did together is not really blog material, but we had a great time.
