A little soiree action in Ainslie…

The Gang slipped into the ‘Berra at the weekend for a sayonara soiree, hosted by Babs and Jane to mark our shift to the coast. The gods were kind and delivered a sunny arvo, and Albie had invited Lola along so it was one of those lovely relaxed kids-and-doggy-friendly kind of doos (we love that.)

Highlight of the evening would have to be Jaqcue Gropps’s Pink Ned Kelly cake (above). She does a great line in cakes, does Jacque – and for this occasion she whipped up a ripper (and even had enough of that gorgeous persian fairy floss left over for Megsie to make a merkin….later in the evening, after the kiddies had gone home, naturally!)

It’s not a total goodbye, of course (quite the contrary!!) – rather just a broadening of the glasscentralcanberra coverage. The Gang will be based at the coast and swing up to Canberra regularly, when occasion demands. Meanwhile, of course, there’s such a sizable outpost of Canberra artists living down this neck of the woods that the flavour of the blog (Chateau de Sheep Dip) will hardly vary – at most it will become perhaps a little more relaxed and countrified [shades of Jane Austen, reckons Ging!] The wider cast will serve to highlight an already long-established and wonderfully robust Canberra-Far South Coast connection.

Anyhoo, back to the soiree – thanks so much to Barb and Jane for their great hospitality – we love youse guys…
