Barbecue

 It turned out that Saturday was a rather dreary day with constant rain. One of our neighbors kindly offered to have us over in their garden. Half of the street is lined with regular houses, the other half has free standing bungalows on a fair bit of land. We were happy with this solution and got together in their front garden. It included the impromptu hustle and bustle of getting barbecus going, setting up party tents and trying to not get wet by the rain. Eliza was a bit taken aback by this and decided to stay as close to me or E as possible (read: cling to us for dear life). A good time was had by all, and we eneded up being within budget and with some food left over, but not much.

We had 22 adults and 15 kids so a varied party. I talked with Amy, an Ameican expat who is a travel writer. They have a family with three daughters. She is hilarious, very fun to hang out with. I was knackered at the end of the evening and I had to leve around 20.00 to get Eliza to bed. When I returned around 21.00 part of the guests had left already. We stayed untill eleven, having drinks and talking. It was great.

I am gathering exprience points with regards to organizing stuff and I think this was a job well done. Go us!

Sidenote: my fellow neighbor and organizer's name is Davina. For real.
