girls, goats, good times and a gratuitous cute cat
Yesterday was the Christmas break-up luncheon for our monthly SnB-type group "Purl's Princesses", so instead of having our usual knitting session at Purl's in Daylesford, Jeanette and I [clad in my best tiara as befits a princess in celebration mode] headed on down the road a little more to Robyne and Paul's unique, quirky, wonderful house at Eganstown.
First order of business was a visit to the goats...
That's 'ccino with Rob, Ms. Latte is behind him and you can just see a bit of Presto's nose. Somehow I missed getting a photo of my favourite, little Milo :[
Unlike moi, Robyne is a real foodie and all stops had been pulled out. Naturally we'd all brought something as well: dips, turkish bread,organic juice, etc but CERTAIN PERSONS were rendered ALMOST speechless by the salmon roulade, prawns, salade nicoise, fruit flan, and other goodies. They would've gotten a greek salad and a bought quiche at my place!
Actually, now that I think about it further, it may have been the freely flowing champers that rendered them incapable of speech :]
We all exchanged KrisKringle gifts and I was happy that our hostess was the one to score my contribution:
and because you can't have a GTG without the obligatory Chantelle [ Central Victorian speak for Show 'n' Tell ] here's the crossstitched quilt that Robyne's making for her son's Japanese mother-in-law.
we'll return to the chrissy pics tomorrow ... nearly finished ... only a couple more rooms to go and then I'll take pity on you and stop ... maybe ... if you're lucky
As it's only early in the season, the count of tree ornaments that the cats have 'redecorated' onto the floor stands at three [ plus the one I knocked off trying to put them back, that's rolled in behind the main tree where I can't reach it ]
