Well the teacosie was a little wild & made us giggle
but when I looked up & saw a friend I just knew it was going to be an especially blessed day.
and finding more planes in the Antique Centre.
And sold an old watch of my grandmothers for scrap gold (truly wasn't salvageable) & the return went a long way to buying this beautiful, pristine double marcella. I've never seen one with lily of the valley before. It is so perfect on our bed.The Kitchen Table in Tennyson Street (Napier)..a photographers gallery & cafe incorporating lots of quirky retro/vintage elements & best of all the coffee's great!
I found a mangosteen (imported)..funny fruit..quite beautiful in appearance.
and giant amaryllis,
Crown Hotel...4th floor. Sea views, delightful & so marvelously, kindly made possible by my brother & his darling wife, who realizing that they wouldn't be able to make use of their Chamber of Commerce prize of a night at the hotel... gave the opportunity to us!!
After desperately cold temperatures & snow the week before who would have thought it possible for us to the have the gift of this sparkling day?
The next morning, about the time of a nice cup of tea, there was a telephone call. Rob's colleagues were calling from Wellington..oh dear he should have been with them attending the annual New Zealand Nurses Organization conference. The dear man had booked his flight a day late. I had been whispering interesting comments only last week of possible symptoms of over intelligence ; 0
We managed to get him to Wellington in time to attend the afternoon sessions & I, well I returned to Ahuriri to have my hair trimmed & visit Port'o'Call . It seems I may have said that I'll help out on a Sunday afternoon for a bit (we'll see how we go). So I went home to wash my best pinnies.
Hope you're having a lovely week.
