Good evening everyone. I scrolled my junk mail today and found a heap of posts that had escaped from me. Great to read through them and catch up now though! I really want some of that Lamb Rogan Josh 😋. We have a 3 day weekend coming up so I will have to make it then 🙌. I’m about to do some cooking but it’s nothing exciting, so I’ll post a pic of Roxy instead. She is delicious too. Love from Abi in Aus and Roxy x
