We have been having fun here at Jubilee Farm, Plettenberg Bay. The weather has mainly been sunny with the odd cooler day with a spit and a spot of much-needed rain. Friends have dropped in, the kids have bonded and the adults have enjoyed each other’s company. And of course, there has been a great deal of cooking and eating of delicious Christmas food!
On Christmas Eve we went to the beach early in the morning, Lisa and Lauren went horse riding later in the day and we braaied in the evening.
On Christmas day it was just the nine of us. We missed Joshua of course but he was having a proper European Christmas while we soaked up the summer sun!
I cooked roast lamb the Greek way. It was served with tzatziki, Lauren’s roast potatoes, vegetables and an enormous Greek Salad with a South African influence. Lauren also did some roast pork. We lit the Christmas Pudding and served it with ice cream.

On The Day of Goodwill (Boxing Day) Lauren and Allan’s friends also ex-Kokstad and now living in George came to spend the day. They had their kids within weeks of each other so they have grown up very closely together.

Nicoline’s mom was spending some time with them and it was lovely to see her again. We are just so lucky to have such an awesome family and fabulous friends. Having everybody together is so relaxed and we just have fun together. There is no better way to spend a South African Christmas!
