We are having a street party in our neighbourhood, as part of The Great Get-Together in honour of Jo Cox. It's all about celebrating "community, commonality and connections", and we are lucky to be part of a lovely, friendly neighbourhood with a strong sense of community.
A small group of us have been getting together regularly to plan The Big Lunch and it's been so much fun! I've loved having something to think about outside of motherhood (maybe a bit too much) and have been enjoying getting a little creative after a long absence. I've put together some placemats and have got a little carried away making some foody props for our Insta-wall. I'm looking forward to seeing all the photos after the event, but most of all I'm looking forward to sharing food and time with friends old and new :)
"We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us"
