Christmas Lunches

Yes it is that time of year,

We have had our lunch for Monday's Mah-jong group. A very pleasant meal at historical Ringsfield House, one of the first homes in Nanango and and the first hospital in the area.   Lunch consisted of chicken with cashew sauce, lots of salads followed by cheese cake and cream.

Last Saturday Thelga and I travelled to Maidenwell  a small town with a population of about 500. On the third Saturday of the month we get together with a group of about 20 crafters. They are a great bunch of ladies who are more than willing to share ideas and teach each other new skills.




Playing games before lunch.
To get our gifts  we played pass the parcel with a twist.
Dawn told a story about Mr Jones who saw Mrs Right go Left.  The story continued and each time we heard left or right we passed the present left or right.  At the end of the story you kept the one in front of you.


After lots of fun we finally got to open our gifts

Thelga opening her gift
After opening our gifts were over we wondered over to the Maidenwell cafe to enjoy a wonderful lunch of baked ham, cold chicken and salads including a delicious mango one.  The lunch was followed by plum pudding and custard, YUM

We decided we would buy a charm pack as our gifts this year


This is my pack (minus Bob)

I love getting together with like minded folk

    1. Hi Julierose
      It is not the sought of fabric I buy. I like the colours and the challenge of what to do with it.
      Hugs to you too
      Cheers Pauline
