Crikey, our Friday night plan got ever so slightly waylaid, but ended up being rather fabularse!
We were expecting our friend Amy over, plus two of her friends for dinner and a jam, and then we were going to trot on down to Pomeroy's for a few drinks with Amber and co....then our awesome Kaikoura mate Dave (whom we call Daveina, have done for years.......) turned up unexpectedly.....that got me really excited and I broke out some bubbly for a few of my new favourite classic champagne cocktails....
And it got a little bit messy....I did manage to make a divoon feta and artichoke quiche ( no pix, bummer), plus a salad and roast potatoes, Amy contributed an amazing pizza she'd made and we scoffed like champions.
We followed dinner with a drunken jam and then I'm really not too sure....
Turns out I was put to bed whilst the rest of them gamely went around the corner to a soundscape party.
I have had a sore head today.
A gal needs to learn her limitations!
I love Daveina to bits!
He stayed the night and after breakfast this morning went to pick up his gorgeous wife and kids from the airport; they've been in the Czech Republic for six weeks visiting family.
Never seen a man so happy to be reuniting with his family!
It was really lovely.
Daveina is a rare man who only ever wanted to meet an awesome babe, hook up and have kids.
Seeing his dreams come true has been an enormous pleasure.
My most recent pleasure has been this rubber pirates ring I got for $2.
It makes me want to do all those piratey noises and be more than a little bit annoying.
I wore, on a wee jaunt up the road for a couple of crucial supplies:
Hat-a market in Wellington
Boots-retail, had 'em for nearly 20 years
Handbag-60's, a vintage shop in New Orleans
Sunglasses-Wasteland, San Francisco
Tonight is going to be a quiet night with my G-tomorrow we have our wonderful Jo and her fiance Malcolm coming over for lunch!
We're cooking Thai, and I'm rather looking forward to it!
