    We visited the Kaiapoi Golf Club today.We enjoyed a lovely  Crumbed Prawn Chips and Salad lunch with salad dress and tartare sauce. The menu is limited currently to about 6-8 main items plus desserts They have been only open one week under new management and appear to still be getting new equipment and  learning the ropes. We think it worth a visit to assess whether to keep it in our regular circuit. .They will have muffins, scones and sandwiches next Monday when we expect to enjoy our 374th Coffee &Chat Gathering.We are therefore  booked.Cheers 😀

    Twelve of us enjoyed our first try of the new caterers @ Kaiapoi Golf Club and apart from one complaint about burnt coffee although mine was OK  they came through for us and will be worth another visit in a few weeks perhaps as we get them more trained. We were Winelover,Dyna, Jamface,Sher72098 &John &Judy Q &Graham No3, Rosieposie &Bess001 Sivam Desi and yours truly.Cheers 😀

    So pleased that you have your new choppers and that you get used to them quickly. Although your diet doesn’t sound very awful. Perhaps some chicken broth would be good. Helps build up strength! I am away to Brisbane on Monday so hope all GUPS enjoy the get togethers and keep well. Ann011

    Happy healing DRL. Don’t rush and try to eat normal food too quickly. After I have just seen with Madeleine with an infection can do I would be extra careful. You will soon feel so much better. You should be smiling wide by next Monday.
    Cheers
