We celebrated welcoming in 2013 not on New Years Eve but on the Saturday before ( 29th December) with a get together at mummi g towers with a great group of expat friends and our one token Aussie (mr mummi h!).
It was a BAP party (Bring A Plate) so we had a great selection of food including potato salad. kebabs, steak, and a cheese and fruit smorgasbord followed by lush lemon meringue cheesecake. The kids were well catered for with snags, chips and ice cream sundaes.
The weather was perfect and the kids were in and out of the pool or seeking shade and playing inside where it was much cooler. It didn’t take long for one of the adults to be chucked in the pool fully clothed, much to the shock and amusement of the rest of us!!
What a brilliant day…. we ate, we drank and some of us were a lot more merry than the rest and as with any New Year’s party there were a few sore heads the next day!!
You may be a well established mummigrant or just setting out to build a new life somewhere new with your family. Either way we would like to wish you all the very best for a happy and healthy 2013 wherever you may be in the world.
