mmm a cute coffee cup steve... well we have been on a roving cafe/good coffee journey this morning (necessary after a few late nights).We piled all the kids in the car at 8:30 and headed west, first stop Katoomba, where the young guy at the paragon made us 2 really good coffees. there is something about the lamp light in the paragon that seems to pillow your head space on a rainy morning. The kids had a start-of-holidays chocolate...(and then we realised it was only 9:30..oops). We put some crop & swap fliers up at the co-op and then waltzed around town for a bit, then headed back down the mountain, (feeling very sorry for those stuck in the snail crawl traffic heading up) to the Blue Wail cafe at Blaxland shops...they had a kids fun day on today between 10 and 2, such a great little cafe attempting to make the world a better place. After face painting and balloon sword duels and more fantastic coffees, we headed home. Also this morning Joe had a garden visit from a friendly neighbour (Hi Justin) who also gardens and digs the crop & swap idea, so the word is spreading. We hope you are all enjoying this somewhat peaceful, rainy Saturday in Spring...

And besides, it gave us an excuse to chat to people we might not of otherwise. We met one of the staff at Jazz Apple Cafe in Glenbrook, who moved to the Mountains in Feb and was excited about the Crop & Swap to get to know people locally.
