So here's a post about what I got up to last weekend - even though its now Friday again.
Last weekend I hosted a really lovely girly gathering at my place - a friend at work knows a beautician that "does house calls" so I invited a few friends over for snacks and beauty treatments. Fun!Here's the snack table - I even made cupcakes for the big day. There were meant to be rainbow cupcakes, but it didn't quite work out. The most important thing is they tasted delicious. I had a manicure done - mine are the bright red nails (I'm the one wearing the Hello Kitty watch of course). Some of the other girls had henna designs done, so pretty. Next time I think I shall get henna too!
On Sunday Rich and I went for a walk in Central Park, when Rich and I first moved to Wellington this park seemed to be dark, gloomy and a little scary. That was part of its charm. It seems like the council has tidied it up a whole lot and now its lighter and brighter. Maybe I am just a little morbid, but I liked the old slightly creepy park better. After our walk we headed to Kreuzberg Summer Cafe for lunch - I really love this little cafe - its basically just a caravan, plants and some brightly painted benches in a parking lot. I think its such a great use of space and it feels a little like visiting someone's house for a barbecue or pot luck dinner. This is the actual "cafe" a caravan and if you look to the right you'll see the "kitchen" a guy cooking on a barbecue. I love it!
Here's our food - pretty good considering there's not a real kitchen. Rich tried to get a tofu burger but they were all out of tofu. Instead he had a haloumi burger, which he said was pretty good. I had a "Clean Brunch" - they call their vegetarian brunch their "Clean Brunch" and the meaty version a "Dirty Brunch". It was pretty good - I especially liked the beans. Although I did manage to spill some on my coat! Messy.
The weekend is now upon us again - it seems like the last week was SUCH a blur. Have a great weekend everyone.
