Hello beloved flock!
How are you holding up all cooped up at home? Do you miss us yet? We sure miss you! We can’t wait to see you all again when this is all over.
It’s been a while since our last update, we got busy! Having said that, The Sheep didn’t have the easiest start – first it was the gilet jaunes who favoured Bastille as a gathering point, then the biggest transport strike in Parisian history, and now a global pandemic 🙃 but as some of you have already remarked, if we can get through this, we can get through anything!
So for now, let’s have a peek at what we’ve been up to since the last update!
We had a couple of surprises at the very start of the year. The first one was that we would no longer get pies delivered from our Kiwi-source! Our plan had always been to move on to homemade ones, but we were hoping for a bit more time to prepare. On January 8th the experimenting started, it was the New Zealanders in France-associations first monthly meetup and we wanted them to be the first to sample. The pies have gone through a bit of a transformation since then, and are now (well, now in the more general sense of the word…) a big part of our bar-life!
Surprise number 2 was that we FINALLY got the Guinness tap installed! We had been waiting a good three months for it to happen, we know some flockers were very impatient…
Other fun stuff in January included Australia day, Kat’s fa-mouse quiz growing and growing (I believe we hit a new high with 14 teams and 27 pies sold in one night..!), new fancy blackboards, the dart board arriving and just hanging out with all of you guys.
That’s all for now flock, we’ll pop back in here soon with the continuation of this years happenings 🥳
Until then, stay safe, wash your hands, do a little dance and stay in touch will you? Baah and love from us 🐑🐑✨
