Cancer Council Biggest Morning Tea

This morning I held my annual "Biggest Morning Tea" for the SA Cancer Council.  But first things first...

Last night Ross and his mate decided we should all go bowling.  I'll be honest, I didn't want to go, but I am glad I did.  We had a great night.

Ross used to bowl in a league so it was a great chance for him to dust off the bowling ball and strut his stuff in the lanes.  I am terrible at bowling, always have been.  I have a funny shaped thumb and struggle with the ball.  But I did okay and even ended up with a 94 in the last game, which I thought was pretty good.  The guys had a great night though and I think it is going to become a regular thing.

This morning was out Biggest Morning Tea.  We decided to make it different from last year so we had it in a park.  Luckily it was a beautiful autumn day and the sun was shining. There was so many yummy eats to choose from...

It was a great morning with great friends

And a couple of dogs! 
My niece Larissa enjoyed the food...

It was a really fun morning and we raised $90 for the SA Cancer Council which I was super stoked with.  Not quite as much as last year, but still a great effort considering how many people were there.  We had a few games with some lovely wine for prizes, but mostly just sat and chatted and ate some lovely food.  I really enjoy these morning teas, but I will have to think of something new for next year so that they don't get boring.

This afternoon I am going to relax for a couple of hours then Mum is coming up for dinner.  Ross has made his Tiramisu for dessert and I am making a Lentil Pilaf with a fresh green salad.

Kylie - I'm with you re the bowling. I have a very small hand and usually have trouble finding a ball with small enough holes. As a result I have also been known on several occasions to drop the ball behind me (when the holes are too big) - very embarrassing.
Your morning tea looks yummy - congrats on the amount you raised.
