Week 4 – a birthday meal at Grain Store

One of my favourite traditions is the one that my friend Jo and I share, and that is to treat eachother to a birthday meal each year. We used to go with our friend Niasha who has now moved back to Sri Lanka, and sometimes Charlotte of Alphabet Adventures joins us, but we never miss it. This […]
