light a fire

Winter solstice has well and truly been and gone. I had visions of a community event in the park but what with all that's been going on, I just couldn't do it. Instead we invited a few of our friends from around here over for a fire. With everybody bringing soup, bread or sweet treats. We built the fire up high and there were sparklers too.

After soup and bread, the children retired to the lounge room with a big plate of cake and biscuits to watch a movie. There were at least eleven children all crammed in there and mostly they were beautifully behaved. The house wasn't even that trashed. We washed out the bowls and spoons (note to self - a big pile of opshop cutlery and some melamine bowls would be useful for such occasions) and grown ups had soup and bread too. It was a beautiful clear night with a nearly full moon. Just perfect for sitting round the fire with a few drinks. Sometimes you've just got to light a fire.
