Knowing my fate is to be with you...


I don't know about you, but sometimes I am frightfully good at being a dutiful blogger and taking loads of coherent pictures....and other times I am not.
The rest of what I have to offer from our little jaunt to Wellington is decidedly random...
Such as this pic G took as we were walking off the plane.......yes, on the tarmac!!!
It was just a little plane, as is usually the case for internal flights here.


Then I caught G when we got off the bus and were about to walk up Cuba St to our hotel.


With an all important stop at Wasabi Sushi for a poke at their sushi train delights on the way!




A little lie down was required, before we went up to Karori to see our friend Justine!


When we were walking down to the bus I realised I had forgotten to bring her birthday pressie...G ran back for it, and I mused myself by taking pix of two of my fave Wellington shops...


Miss Rose, Justine's daughter, is now 3 years old!
She's enjoying a book we delivered for her Papa.
Typically, I forgot to take any pix of Justine.........doh!



A few shots before we went out the next day...



And a couple before we went out that night....


Here I am at the infamous bucket fountain.....


Trying not to get splashed!


Here's a slightly better shot of the 70's does 30's frock I scored at Vintage Orama...I envisage myself wearing this with big, boofy, curly hair for some reason...I think I have a Biba image in mind?!
And some splendid red, white-ish and blue beads!


G spotted these darling little Nally cannisters at a market on the way to Vintage Orama.......just four, and I'm certain there would have been five....


...and when I had a quick look on the net to see if I could find what colour the fifth one would be, lo and behold, I found a set that Kitty had posted a few years ago! 
Five!
I thought the fifth one would be an exciting colour like pink, or something bright at least, but it's beige. Mind you, the letters are on different colours to mine, my N is orange....
If anyone can help with the fifth baby cannister, do let me know!
I simply can't stand to have an even number.......!!!


Lastly, a quick pic of me checking out the snow at work yesterda (Friday) morning....feck me, it was bitterly cold!
Didn't settle, thankfully.
It's been pissing down rain for days, but I am all cosied up at home and am going to put on  big pot of comforting soup.....we're having a Flange practice tonight; I love to feed the troops!
I think our Nix is going to come on over too, and take some photos for us.
Hurrah!

I'm all freaking cause I just joined bloglovin and I'm afraid everything I type or touch will turn into alien language now. Speaking of which, your divine white hat looks like a virginal brain. I love your random shots all ways. I hope you recorded more brilliant songs!! You know what a huge fan I am.

freckleface said...

Yes, it is, when are you coming over?

I love the look of that 70s does 30s dress, so can't wait to see it on. How cute does G look in his little orange hat beside that post box?

Love your lie down shot and that GORGEOUS one of you with the amazing hat. You sure are stylish travellers.

Never heard of Nally cannisters, but I do hope you find number 5. I hate to see a family split up like that. I bet you're a fantastic hostess. xxxxx

I spy with my little eye...two fabulous coats! Both yours and G's are great...but especially your fluffy red wool coat (I have a brown one- nowhere near as cool as red though! xx Shauna

Krista Gassib said...

These are a nice mash up of your weekend! Don't you both look incredibly hot in your sexy coats! I'm in love with G's gray jacket, it's pretty fierce! Food friends and adventure you do it so well!
Xxxooooo

I love this candid/ random photos and envy your beautiful/ interesting winter looks...I am just buried under a pile of woollens trying not to freeze xxx

Alexa H said...

I love all of the red in your photos! Those canisters are so cute! I hope you find the other canister to complete the set. Xx

Miss Simmonds Says said...

I want to visit those shops! Are they both Japanese?! They look great. You look fab, I love a few random holiday photos, epsecially as it's comforting to know you seem to need as many lie downs as I do. You're a vision in red, white and blue! xxx

pastcaring said...

You look so glamourarse straight off the little plane! Delicious food, afternoon nappage, shopping, not-such-a-baby-now-Rose, that amazing white hat, red, white and blue, dapper military man G... All soooo wonderful! And I love the 70s-does-30s frock and those sweet canisters missing their fifth member - someone will pick you up a G from somewhere. You did pretty well in that department yourself, didn't you?! Love you! xxxxx

Vix said...

How do you look so fabulous straight off a plane? To hell with professional bloggers, all the best bloggers take a million drunken photos in a rush.
Looking hawt in your red, white and blue finery and G looks very tasty indeed.
Those cannisters are gorgeous. Why would they have made a beige one, that's just perverse!
Love you! xxxx

Misfits Vintage said...

Oh fucking fuck a bastard duck, I'm so far behind AGAIN. I'm The Worst!

SO MUCH TO SAY! Love the pic of you on the tarmac - such a jetsetting international woman of mystery! Love G-star in his fab orange hat and that GORGEOUS coat. The sushi looks DELICIOUS. The fountain pic is AWESOME. Baby Rose is such a big girl now.

LOOOOOOOOOOVE the pic of you by the window. Might get that tattooed on my boobs, since i am a lezzo slut.

The canisters are gorgeous and I'm like you, I ABSOLUTELY CANOT HAVE AN EVEN NUMBER - IT HURTS ME!

Love you more than canisters!

Sarah xxxxx
