A week or two ago, before the storm called Lusi (glad they didn't spell it the other way) howled through our land, we found we had to be in Napier early one Friday evening to run a little errand. This strip of Art Deco inspired garden, green lawn & Sound Shell has always seemed welcoming & cheery, so we stopped for a small cider & cheese sort of picnic. The sun was still warm & friendly...
I stopped & got a mandi. The henna smelt very strong for hours but I loved it. My lovely Indian neighbour Sumana told me it was called a mandi. I look forward to seeing her wedding photos as apparently she had mandi painted all over both arms. Golly, she'd had to have been very still for quite some time so as not to smudge the wet henna. I didn't do a very good job of letting mine dry.
And dear Nina is a happy Fruit Lady assistant.
We can hardly believe that we've had Lucy almost a year.
Did you have a Nana who made quince jelly?
We finally recieved a Cath Kidston catalogue in the mail last week, after years of asking.
We've given Lucy a freshen up..
With much love to you all for a happy week,
Catherine, Rob & Lucy.
Thanks so much for popping in!
