It is human nature to put things behind us and move on. We have a tendency to forget the highs and lows of the year and so many of them blend together that eventually you are not sure that some events actually took place in that year. Okay, I am generalizing here or maybe I am just talking about myself so I figured I would take a walk down memory lane before this year ends and show you what has happened in the life of Indulgence Cafe, Lollipops Catering, Amiga and myself to a degree, in the past 12 or so months.
Share this journey with me. Feast your eyes and imagine after seeing these images how fabulous this year will be if the best of 2012is the worst that next year has to offer. Seeing as we so seldom record life’s lows in pictures, unless you’re on the front lines,I will just share with you the highs, events, places, people, books and FOOD!

Thank you for sharing your time with us, for eating with us, celebrating with us and supporting us through lousy weather, slack service, alterations, menu changes, price increases, heat waves, endless rain, food price hikes, petrol increases and staff changes; all the things that happen in the life of a restaurant and catering company; things that we tend to take for granted, deal with in our stride, things that we call LIFE. Thank you for sharing them all with us and coming back for more
