The cake befits the simplicity of the reception. It was actually a lovely chocolate mud cake.
Surprisingly, it was light and very more-ish, unlike a lot of mud cakes these days which can really be on the heavy side.
The spread for this wedding was much more casual that the last wedding I went to. We shared platters of seafood and antipasti for entree and fruit, cheese and mini tarts for dessert. In the middle was a choice of chicken, steak or fish mains. I chose the fish, which didn’t turn out to be a good idea. Not enough sauce, although I had no complaints about the portion size.
Spent a lovely day walking in Heathcote National Park. It’s somewhere I’ve never been before, even though it is literally across the road from its bigger and more well-known sister, Royal National Park. So it’s not surprising that the landscape is similar – dry eucalypt forests, sandstone gorges and creeks – but it feels much more off the beaten path.
It was lovely to see the profusion of spring wildflowers, which are surprisingly colourful.
And we found a beautiful spot in Kingfisher Pool. You can even camp nearby.
Ah, the trials of online dating… with the very, very unlikely combo of Catherine Tate and James Bond himself, Daniel Craig.
I quite liked the film Mamma Mia. It was a whole load of fun if you left your brain at the door. But I was very aware of its inadequacies, and this spoof really takes the cake.
