Hello Readers, welcome to this month’s column for the New Year 2017, Happy New Year to you all.
We had a very busy festive season which kept us all here at Montrose House very occupied looking after all our clientele. We also had visitors from England staying and then visitors from Adelaide. We actually had camper vans in the back of Montrose House! Wonderful, happy times for all concerned.
Hugh McLaren’s 80th birthday dinner on Christmas Eve was a wonderful night with all his family attending.
We also had a full house Christmas Day, as you can imagine. A sumptuous four course lunch was enjoyed by all including Richard Glasson and sister Susie and family and The Rice Clan, Graham and Deb with their older family members enjoying the day amongst others here.
Boxing Day we put on a fabulous seafood buffet to celebrate a 40th birthday and another 40th the next night for Craig Simpson followed by a family dinner on the Wednesday night hosted by locals Ellen & Stewart McDonald which was a sensational evening.
As you can guess I am totally exhausted after that so I headed to Sydney for a week’s break and sailed around Sydney Harbour with a bunch of great mates and enjoyed lunch at Doyle’s Watson Bay to name a few of the things I enjoyed.
Back to work now with lots of dinner parties, a wedding in April, a huge family reunion in March and then off to New York and London for me so you won’t be seeing me around so much, going to do all the things I have been putting off for years and want to enjoy before I get too old. Also going to do some major fundraising for Gooloogong Log Cabin to help out the wonderful people over there so will keep you posted. Talulah coming out for just one more show.
Hope life is good to you, take care, be happy and stay healthy.
Best Wishes, Tommy x
