|Tantrix (the game being played in the background) was very popular.|
|It worked well having me on the sofa. I spent a lot of time just watching what was going on but also had a number of one-on-one conversations.|
|A few people spilled outside.|
|Both Martin and Sarah worked very hard making sure everyone was well fed and had someone to talk to.|
|I loved watching our next-door neighbour Paul (granddad to 12 kids) playing with little Josaiah.|
It was a lovely day - I got a bit teary later, thinking about all the people who mean a lot to me who I wouldn't know if we hadn't come to live here!
