There were lots of aprons and checking of recipes - oh no the Japanese measuring cup is only 200 mls not our standard 250 mls. What is a ml anyway? There was great discussion.
Then we had to set the table - I think there were 15 of us.
We all enjoyed a great lunch and ate more than we should. There was a good atmosphere of ladies enjoying themselves.
The menu was rice and miso soup followed by Christmas fruit cake, mince pies, rum balls and trifle.
Jan was asked to tell the ladies how she became a Christian and Chiko - san did the interpreting.
