More guests

Last night my friend Mickey and her two friends from Hiroshima and Okayama came to stay in the cottage. It was the first test of having different guests two nights in a row and I think it worked out well. The kids definately enjoyed it, although I'm not sure how much the guests enjoyed having the kids around them. They tended to get a little excited.... I'm hoping they will learn to calm down a little more if the number of guests increases further!
After a Japanese style meal with the guest on Friday night, I made a traditional New Zealand meal for Mickey - roast lamb, roast veges, salad and of course pavlova for dessert! I won't be able to make it for very many guests, but it was nice for a change! It was also really nice to be able to talk with everyone -although I'm not sure I would be able to keep the chat up until after midnight every night if the guests increase!
This afternoon we also had the children's piano concert - 4 hours in total.... another story which I won't go into here! Needless to say I'm looking forward to farewelling the kids on the bus to kindergarten tomorrow and then heading back to bed for a morning nap! Mind you there is a forecast for heavy snow tonight so maybe the bus won't be able to come at all......

    Hi, Jo.
    Thank you for everything about our stay.
    We really really enjoyed.
    My friends were really excited so we couldn't sleep well.
    Thanks again.
