Saturday night's alright

Yes, there are compensations for working on a Saturday.... even if you come home to this :
And this below... Mr SE has been glued to the cricket over the last few weeks or so. Very Important Matches are being played. The Ashes series between Australia and England. To start with England looked as if it would be an easy victory and Mr SE really enjoyed being the 'Pommie' at his work - now he is not so sure as Australia are fighting back.
Anyway, on to more important things. As I said, sometimes being at work when Mr SE is at home is a Good Thing. He was very busy (in between bouts of watching sport on TV).

He prepared this lovely salad with fetta cheese.

Barbequed some red peppers and aubergine (aka capsicums and eggplant depending on your point of view or country!)

and slow roasted some lamb.

Above, the fruits of his labours. And very lovely it was too...
And YES, that IS our new table. It is beautiful and does deserve a post of its own which I promise to do soon.
Happy weekend to one and all.

    My men have been watching the cricket as often as possible too. We have had the cricket and commentaries on all day and night since we arrived back from Hong Kong on Thursday.
