A chocolate high tea

Yes! You read that correctly. A CHOCOLATE HIGH TEA. That's like when your two loves have a baby and just so much yes!!



So a dear friend of mine is celebrating her birthday the best way possible. By enjoying time (and food) with friends. Rather than clumping all her friends into one room, she is having little get togethers in little groups so she can actually spending time with friends. You know how it is when all your friends are in the one room its hard to get more than 2 sentences in with each person.

I digress. Chocolate. High tea. Yes.


We enjoyed our high tea on a porch at the lovely Coco Chocolate in Sydney's Harbour National Park at historic Middle Head, near Mosman.

High tea consisted of;

A shot of hot chocolate
The most scrumptious scones with butter, jam and fresh cream
Raspberry dark chocolate
Coconut milk chocolate
Flourless orange cake
Chocolate pistachio shortbread
Florentines 
Cake with double cream and strawberries
And of course, tea!



You know when you need a good chocolate feast and an even better laugh with friends while trying to fight off magpies and struggling to learn the secrets to posing for a good OOTD shot. Well maybe not in those exact words, but you get me.



The four of us are mothers. Some newer, others older. But we all have the commonality of being rather tired and bewildered at just how challenging it can be. Whether its a change in sleeping patterns, going back to work, starting preschool or trying to prepare for the tweens, parenting just doesn't let up. So a bit of chocolate and giggles won't hurt anyone. I think it is so important for parents to find the time to spend with others. I mean having a young child means you are rarely alone, but parenting can actually become quite lonely. I came away from this with a slight food coma, and some sore abdominal muscles from all the laughing. I will say, it's a true friendship when you all turn up in blue as though it was planned, but it was a total coincidence.

If you're a Sydney sider or you're stopping by or you love chocolate, check out Sydney Chocolate School



Meanwhile, I am up to my neck in uni work so if posts become sporadic that is why. I'm hoping to post at least twice a week but final year just doesn't let up, kind of like parenting.
