Breakfast date

I met M when our kids were in kinder.  Just a few weeks ago, I bumped into her and realised that we are staying really near each other.   I was overjoyed!

I didn't get a chance to really mingle with my neighbours when we moved in.   First I was ill.  After I am well enough to bake, I bring my goodies to offer, their door bells don't work.  They seem awfully private. 

I need to get to know my French neighbour well! hahaha... I also noticed that there are some young families down the road. Let's hope they are friendly and I can build some new friendship over here.

Talking about this, I seriously missed the friendship that I had where I was staying before. They were the best neighbours I ever had!  Always felt so welcome. 

Back to M, plan was to have our kids get together to play for a day but the one week school holiday was impossible.

So this morning we have our breakfast date.   Morning period is the best time for homemaker like me.  Its sure been a long time since I last had a breakfast date.  It is really good to be out and have some ME time! 

See that is why I love the kids to be in school.  Anyway, I am counting down to the day that my little girl will be independent enough for me to leave them at home and go on a holiday!  "Dreaming mode"

Okay today I wanted to share with you a Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe that I had done during the school holiday.  I couldn't take any picture back then because my son ate the whole jar of cookies.   So while GL was here, we done another batch, this time round, I also reduced the sugar considerably. 


If you like chewy cookies just like us, go figure whether this is good or not.

  1. Mm, I think you will make a good neighbour. Like you, all my new neighbourly friendship is forged through cookies :-)
