Setting the table.

I love the idea of having people over for dinner, I love planning the menu and then I love setting the table during the day. I put out the best china and glasses, pick flowers from the garden and then I wonder if everyone will have a good time, will they enjoy the food? will they all get on? will they laugh? the anticipation lasts until the doorbell rings.

  9. I have so little confidence in my domestic skills that I never consider having people over - but it would be so fun. Maybe I need to learn to cook.

  11. Hi, wish I was coming to dinner, your table looks beautiful; very inviting. You were working at the Mount, small world. I live in Victor Harbor, dairy farming, tourist town about 11/2 hours south of Adelaide on the coast. Robe is about another 3 hours south on the coast from here.,but it's our fave. holiday place, even tho. the water there is always absolutely freezing. I have only had my 7D a couple of months too, and only one lens, the one it came with anEFS15-85mm. I would love a 100mm macro. Of course I'm telling myself my photos will be so much better with a new lens ha. thats like my tennis will be a whole lot better with a new racket. Practice, practice, practice ,I know Thanks for following me, you can be my honest and true critic of my "snaps". I,m going to follow you......just to feast on your gorgeous ones. Cheers from Oz xx
