My favourite Pixie visited thank to the generosity of the New Zealand government sending their favourite public servants to conferences across the Tasman (and I promise to not relate a story that involves the following words: fare minister tram evader transport allegedly). She was my leave pass from the mini Feb Fast so the past week has been sponsored by many fine winemakers. Pinot Grigio, Rose, Reisling, Sauvignon Blanc – it’s been delightful to make your acquaintance again.
And eating – Tom Phat for brunch, The Kent for a farewell lunch in the sun, Warung Argus for a memory of Bali, Chocolate Buddha to have a night to gossip by ourselves. And more drinking – Jawa Bar, Seamstress, the lounge room, at the dining table and the newly renovated backyard.
Now it is March. How did that happen? The leaves have begun to fall and a blue-skyed day doesn’t feel quite as warm. The cats have started to curl up together to sleep or otherwise look askance for a lap to suck a little human heat from. And the thought of staying at home on Saturday night and hitting the hay early is all of a sudden hugely appealing.
Have a great weekend, wherever in the world you are.
