Normally we get take away cakes.. But yesterday was the first time I sat down and had morning tea with Mini Nunes (aka Tornado) and my dear friend Susie.

Oh and Mini Nunes thought it would be great to blow kisses and of course leave smudgy handprints all over their glass window while he watched everyone work in the kitchen.
