Meeting the neighbours

Earlier this week we decided to say hello to the tenants in the other five units of our building, so I slipped a note under each door inviting them to our place for some drinks and nibbles. I’ve since been told that was the sort of unsolicited friendliness that most Sydneysiders wouldn’t demonstrate.

Never mind, four of them did come over. We had quite a laugh sitting in our back yard. We got to know each other a little bit, knocked back a few bottles of wine, had some snacks, and heard a bit about the neighbourhood and building from those who’ve been here longer than us. People seemed to have fun getting to know each other, including those who’d only previously said hi as they passed in the stairwell. I hope we hang out with some of them again.
