Deck Warming Brunch

29 Dec

IMG_7579So, the damn deck. Which Mr B will use to effectively quash every future sigh I make over dilapidated terraces and decrepit farmhouses. The project that taught us we are NOT good renovators. But, it’s (basically, almost) finished and it adds a whole “outdoor room” (thanks Jamie Durie) to our home. We’re focussing on the enjoyment bit after the long, long, long stressful building bit, which of course meant throwing a party. And since I’m a space cadet by 3pm, twas a brunch.

I made a big jug of watermelon punch, plus some limey pina colada shooters for the brave. Turns out our friends are getting soft in their old age. Not many takers for shots at breakfast. Very sad state of affairs.
