Everybody needs good neighbours
with a little understanding
you can find the perfect blend
Neighbours should be there for one and other
That's when good neighbours become good friends.These are the lyrics to the world renown soap opera
It is based in Ramsey Street Australia,
The tales evolve round the comings and goings of the
neighbours, all very interesting and heart warming too!
Several of the character sprang to fame in the music industry
including Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan.
We have wonderful neighbours and have shared many joyous occasions
including special birthdays, Christmas and New Year parties and so on,
The most special neighbours are the family who live next door,
There are the two boys aged 22 and 17,
then Mum and Dad Karl and Anna.
We've been friends for 21 years from the day they moved in when the elder son was just
eighteen months old. Within a short space of time we would be invited around for meals,
Anna is a lovely cook, she is half Italian and creates some stunning Mediterranean dishes.
When they visit us I often make one of my special Lamb Curries which they love,
or even a good old British roast.
The Nicest time is the Summertime, then all kinds of Nocturnal events occur, ladies rustling up delicious salads, bowls of steaming hot buttered New Potatoes with perhaps some marinated chicken or beef and king prawns.
The menfolk stand around the Barbie having a beer and a good Natter and offering tips to the Notable Chef de Barbie of that Night.
Naturally the ladies will enjoy a few glasses of a Naughty little Napa Valley Rose.`
We have a great little café called The Neighbourhood which serves all sorts of delicious meals and snacks, people often meet there to discuss local issues too, which is important too my thriving Neighbourhood.........I really can't think of a Nicer place to live .
