Day 1353 - No strings attached

Today I am taking a break for a no-strings-attached cuppa.

My besties do not live in Canberra. That means I don't get to see them all that often.  My soul sista is in Pennsylvania and my uni crew are scattered up and down the eastern seaboard of Australia.  Oh, I have friends in Canberra for sure ... and many people in my life ... but they are friends and people with a purpose (so to speak).  They are either parents of my kids friends, involved in my cheerleading activities, work colleagues, business networks, clients or family.  They come with strings attached. Or fruit that is added to my big old hat. They come with responsibility and pre-prepared discussion topics.

But today ... today I have a cuppa with a new acquaintance who is not attached to anything! We met at the races on Melbourne Cup day and we have no reason to be friendly other than we actually like each other*.  And after the stress and the craziness of the last few weeks, I'm really looking forward to that.  PLUS she has all sorts of green tea and white tea and black tea and herby hippy la-la tea and that too is something to make me happy dance.

I can take off my hat(s) and just leave it all at home.

A new acquaintance.

No agenda.

Fresh.

See you soon Kate B!

PS That is not a photo of Kate. In case you were wondering. She is no where near that deep fried ...

* Of course I actually like all of the other peeps in my life too.  Let me just qualify that ... It's not their fault that they bear fruit.
