Daughter Nicky had arranged a pre-Christmas get-together at the Strong Room Café in Feilding, and we were looking looking forward to catching up with them. Nicky has been dealing with a health challenge lately, and we wanted to see how she was getting on. There were groans when I got my camera up, but as I told them, that’s what nana’s do, take photos when we are together. Or, in this case, ask the obliging waitress to do it for me. Grand-daughter Emma was away in Wellington, so there were only five of us for lunch.

The casual lunch menu was very nice, with corned beef sandwich, a couple of Big Breakfasts and a Beef Burger being ordered. I decided on the salmon dish, with arrived with smoked salmon and salad, and salmon pate – it was delicious.

On the drive up we had called into the Tender Tips Asparagus Farm to buy some for us and some for Nicky, as I know she loves it – this was gratefully received. We had also taken the Christmas parcels up, swapped them over and came home with these. Of course, we won’t open them till Christmas Day.
It was lovely to catch up with the family, and we are pleased that Nicky seems to be progressing well with her treatment. The roads weren’t too busy with pre-Christmas traffic, which was a blessing.
