I've just done my semi annual barbeque/braai. Its easiest with people bringing children to do something outdoors. The weather held ! I had contingency plans to casserole sausages and do mashed potatoes indoors if it tippped down. But two days of provisioning and housework has left me exhausted. I'm off to lie down on the sofa with the Observer. I used to entertain like a demon at least every two months a dinner party, party party... I'm now a semi hermit with my hostessing skills extremely rusty.

I'm not sure if the trick is to entertain more to make it easier or not or just to let off doing it at all.

Oh well the cake went down well, orange/almond/gluten free.
