But before lunch, it was “gift time”, and this time i was ready for them, with a packed “gift box” per couple, see Shannon and Evie “tucking” into their giftboxes ….. never a dull moment, and i cannot tell you how much fun I’ve had during the months leading up to this weekend, planning and searching for little things to add the their “surprise” boxes….

And Evie, it is nearly lunchtime, put that box away now…

Evie and her gift box… sorry Evie i would have loved to add a lens or 2, but the budget did not allow it…

Lunch was on Evie , they served Ginger and Coconut Prawns with Italian Black rice and a green salad….

For the Ginger and Coconut Prawns you will need:

Chop spring onions and fry lightly, add grated ginger, chilly jam and soya sauce. Fry the prawns in the coconut oil until pink and add the sauce, stir through….
