I did something that was strangely out of my comfort zone yet something I felt compelled to do......
Bake some muffins and take them warm over to the new family that moved in next door to us.
Since when has welcoming someone new into the neighborhood become such a hard thing to do....I had so many what if's...
what if they had food allergies, what if they were suspicious of my intentions, what if they just thought I was plain overly nosey......
Well gladly acting on my compulsion to just be an old fashioned neighbor, I met with none of the above what if's......instead I met the loveliest of ladies, met her 9 month old and found out that they were even keen to have a ready made babysitter living next door ( score for Meg) .
I knew that if I didn't pop over briefly in the first few days it could become awkward to make the move.
Have you ever wandered over with home baked goodies to welcome a neighbour....was it a good experience?
I should share my very quick and delicious muffin recipe with you just in case the need ever arises to share them with your neighbours.
