Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

Moments of immense joy and pride

There are some times in all of our lives that mark unforgettable moments and yesterday was one such for my family. My eldest son's graduation from Cambridge University, a place close to out hearts and dear to our souls for so many reasons. The day dawned blue - vibrant blue, not a cloud in the sky and we overlooked the lawns of Downing College as the robed young men and women congregated with their families for a picture of the year and then the procession down to Senate house through the cobbled stone streets of Cambridge flanked by historic colleges along the way. A ceremony conducted exclusively in Latin which seemed somewhat archaic but in conformity with the ritual and the 800 year old history of the University.
He has loved every minute of it and it will be a very special part of his life forever.For us that moment was mixed with nostalgia as this is where we met, pride and joy for his achievement and a slight tinge of sadness that it might be a while before we return.
