Friday Night = Fish and Chips for tea if you’re a good Catholic family…We are not Catholic but it didn’t take long to work out that because of the high demand on Friday night the best Fish and Chips were available then…. So that’s when we have them.

Jacqui is the mother of my/our 4 children and Walter is her husband.
There was a crowd at the beach as lots of folk thought as we did, that after a fairly hot day, it would be pleasant down at the beach when the afternoon sea breeze came in... we were all correct!!!
After a fairly hectic day spent on reorganizing a normal suburban house into a party venue for 21 peoplewe finally got most of the chores done and started to think about an evening meal, we settled on some pretty elaborate hot-dogs and pizza's, with some fresh fruit salad to finish with.
Alan had almost finished cutting up the fruit for the fruit salad when we made the alarming discovery that we were out of condenced milk, for those who are not in the know this is a SWEETENED product made from sugar with a hint of a milk product as an aside, this is made by the chocolate maker Nestles and has been used as a topping for deserts in the Holt family for years, it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to say we are addicted to the stuff.
To the rescue on his bright yellow steed came the newest fringe dweller to the clan... Luke, the gallant boyfriend of Aimee, as luck would have it Luke among his other good points has a love of condenced milk too so without hesitation he rode quickly into the sunset to procure the product in question.

Tomorrow, Sunday, is the big day when we all gather for the first (and major) christmas dinner and get together, this is nearly sure to provide some more stories and photos, so if you think you can stand the pace... come on back again.
