|a little afternoon tea party for Scott, complete with Matthew Evans ye oldey appley cake, yum.|
As I mentioned in my last post it was difficult leaving some special friends in Sydney, those friends with years of knowing, of love growing stronger, of trust, of joy. So it was really lovely to return home to an email from 5 Church St inviting us to a secret night, drinks and food on them, what could it be? With little digging we found out it was Steve's, one of the awesome people who make this place happen, birthday. It was a great (and late) night with a real sense of being enveloped into the community. The beautiful pack of children playing and laughing outside was pretty awesome and everyone was really relaxed and delighted to be there. It was a night of random conversations in the kitchen, discussing exciting plans for the place and finding connections in unexpected places.
No, it wasn't like having my dearest friends with me but it was still really nice.

Last night we squeezed into Amy's place for a mexican feast, complete with fancy dress. Beans, nachos, sangria, mulled wine, pickles, fetta, two separate red cabbage and carrot salads as one is never enough and some delicious apple, crunchy coconut cake. sweet.
And a couple of pics from Joelle's 40th. Photos courtesy of the amazing Steve.Curry Fest in Woolgoolga, should make for some interesting pics.
