Last Monday, we drove home again to be welcomed, late afternoon, by this gorgeous autumn scene on the driveway leading to the house.
Last Wednesday, I finished the quilt for baby Isabelle and posted it off on Friday.
Last Friday, yesterday, Nic and I had a drive out to The Paper Mulberry Cafe for a fix of their excellent date scones. Their coffee is very good too. We sat outside, at a table that was once an old blue door, the sun shining on a perfect autumn day with views across the countryside. At that point, life seemed pretty good.
Last week sometime, I started to pick up and eat the feijoas from the orchard - not to everyone's taste I know but to me its a real part of being a kiwi girl. They are so delicious. My English husband just doesn't get the attraction ! You may wonder why there are eggs on the plate - its to show the size of the giant feijoa top right.
