Christmas Tea Party

Here's a picture of my three friends that come to my house on Thursday afternoons for a craft session.  I decided that this Thursday we would have a tea party as it was our last meeting before Christmas...
We had a lovely time and ate too much - of course!  Here's the menu...

On white & brown bread
Ham & Soft Cheese
Prawn with Sweet Chili Mayonnaise
Hot Sausage Rolls
Home Made Chutney
Hot Mince Pies
served with Grand Marnier Cream

Sherry Trifle

Palmier Biscuits

Fruit Cake
To Drink
Red or White Wine
Ginger & Lemon Grass Cordial (hot or cold)
Cup of Tea

We didn't eat everything, no one had fruit cake.  No one had the wine but I thought it was nice to have it to offer.  I did feel too full by the end of the tea and had to go and stand at the back door to cool down!

I couldn't have done this if I had stayed on the Sertraline.  I stopped taking it a week ago and feel much better - more awake.  I'm still sleeping better and my mind feels a lot calmer.  If I start to feel unwell in the future I would probably go back on the Sertraline but only short term.  They did help me.
