A couple of weekends ago I went to a Kinfolk 'gathering' at the Avalon sailing club here in Sydney. I had always wanted to go to a kinfolk 'thing' having seen and read so much about them. I didn't really know what to expect, I thought there might be lots of men with beards and people with interesting shoes and I thought we might weave something or sit around a campfire. I was of course very wrong and as the word suggested, it was a gathering of strangers for four hours with only a couple of beards and no craft in sight. I loved the setup, the location was so beautiful and the food was absolutely fantastic. Everything looked so pretty and cameras and iPhones worked non stop, instagram overload! I spent rather too much time envying the guitar player in the corner who didn't have to talk to anyone as I have come to the conclusion I really am absolutely rubbish at small talk …..does anyone else have this problem or a solution perhaps??
