Well, it is Christmas Eve morning for me, and have a few things to do...off to see 'My Lady' this morning and sort her day out, then back into my the kitchen for few hours of prep for tomorrow.
The Ham is spectacular this year..mmm...and have got 30 or so chicken on sticks to make..yay!
As we are in summer,[not that you would think so today] we are leaning towards a BBQ...but with a bit of posh stuff on the side....prawns being my favourite, and I made sure there were plenty.
The fish pie I'm making is mainly for my son and one of his daughters, they dont like meat!!!
so I dont want them to eat just a bun with some salad...thats the reason behind that.
I tottered off last night before it got real dark to take pics of the house with all the lights...so mant people, and not being quite dark enough, these are the best I came up with.
I would have waited till it was very dark, they would have looked so much better, but I'm night blind, so had to get back home before darkness took over.
The young man who owns this property has had a different and hard life, but has proved that anything can happen.
When he was 17 years old, he lied to his parents about going to the movies with some friends...instead they went joy riding....one of the boys in the back seat got snippy and wanted the change seats with [Mark]..so they did...and coming down the back hills, the driver lost control, and the car went over the edge of the bank....the driver died, the front passenger was decapitaed, and the boys in the back were seriously injured and Mark was left a quadraplegic.[not sure if thats how you spell it]..and as no one knew where they were... they were alone down the bottom of the gully for about 14 hours....
So if there are teens reading this...dont fib!!!!
Years of therapy, he is now in his 30's and has many businesses...lights are one of them, and have become very popular, and this is his over the top, but gorgeous show home.
So there you are, no card today, but hope you enjoyed the photos.
Had better get cracking, lots to do...
