* light over 150 Queen B pure beeswax candles
* prepare food for slow cookers:
- Creamy Vegetable & Almond Korma
- Lamb Tagine with Harissa and Green Olives
- Chorizo, Chilli & Bean Stew
- Beef, Date and Spinach Tagine
* prepare drinks:
- hot apple cider
- hot Maxwell spiced mead
- Beez Neez beer
- rose, red wine, white wine, mineral water
Prepare ingredients. Mix with dear friends, favourite customers, retailers and media... et voila!
Just one word of warning...
As we were throwing the roller door open for the night, I went to Bunnings and bought a couple of braziers and goodies for a couple of open fires for everyone to stay warm around... only problem... seems that Bunnings are selling an illegal product and the Fire Department hadn't bothered to tell them.
I am usually a massive fan of Firies, Ambo's, Police etc. It think they generally do a really thankless job for relatively little pay, but I have to say that this bunch were rude and obnoxious. Unfortunately they deemed that our brazier (surrounded by 100 square meters of concrete) was way to dangerous and we were made to put them out. Wouldn't want to be the Bunnings buyer in charge of that department tomorrow.
Thankfully the lights were consistent with Bastille Day.
