I was given strict instructions this weekend not to post anything incriminating about family members on my blog. That pretty much means I have no photos and nothing much to tell you. I can say that it was a relaxing weekend, in a wonderful location and as a family we really should make an effort to do this more often.
Friday night was heralded by this gorgeous sunset (taken from the balcony of the house we stayed in which was just lovely)
Saturday morning we were up bright and early to go to the Willunga Farmers market. This was my breakfast at the market along with a very large cup of coffee. There was also free taste testing of boutique beer at 9 am which my oldest nephew thought was the best way to wake up ever.
I love going to markets because you can buy things you hardly ever see at the regular shops.
These spice mixes looked tempting....I'm not averse to a bit of spice
I've wanted to use preserved lemon in something for just about forever and now I can finally give it a crack. The Jamato sounds interesting too and that Moroccan jam ...yum!
I snuck in some op shopping (even if my Dad did grizzle about having to stop ) I couldn't leave this soup tureen to the mercy of someone who wouldn't love it as much as I did....
Other Nephew of Pyjamas (who says I don't mention him often enough in my blog) taught Miss P how to play chess.
Giving Other Nephew his 5 minutes of fame here ....
It is tradition in our family when we all get together to try and eat as much Mullers Metwurst as possible. This was my effort . I did see one of the boys wandering round with a 4 inch hunk at one point so I couldn't declare myself the winner this weekend. It took us less than 24 hours to completely polish off about a kilo.
On Saturday night we went for dinner at The Star Of Greece which sits atop a cliff and looks straight out onto the sea.
The happy couple celebrating 50 years of wedded bliss. Dad jokingly asked Mum for a divorce. At least I think he was joking.
Miss P , me and Sister of Pyjamas after a few cocktails. It was about 100 degrees so we all look like we're melting.
Nephew of Pyjamas and The One who always looks gorgeous. (who actually has the same name as Miss Pyjamas which means things get very confusing sometimes when we are all together )
It's going to be a busy week. Dad goes into hospital today for surgery and Little P is scheduled for surgery on Thursday. Once we're through all that kerfuffle we have another big celebration on Friday. Somewhere in amongst the pressures of the week I'd like to get some sewing done!
