A party without cheesecake

Tonight we visited Mike's mother's house - Mike and Bex were there. We officially acknowledged their status as affianced. Isn't that a great word? Comes from the French affiance which means a band. You can immediately see where fiancé or if a woman fiancée comes from. Bex does not in fact have a band but was excited by her new Birkenstock shoes. Mike is looking great and obviously enjoyed his Antarctic experience. They are talking about Wanaka for this winter as a base. Mike's family keen to know wedding plans so we eavesdropped happily. About this time next year and either Wanaka or Nelson. That is about the extent of plans

Because this was all organised at short notice we took wine but no cheesecake. It was missed
