A couple of weekends ago...

I won free tickets to go ice skating in Aotea Square. I don't often venture into the centre of town so it was a rather nice outing, finished with an amazing milkshake at Shakey Isles :)

Citrus and Berry Friands

I discovered Christina's lovely little piece of the internet a little while back when I was stuck at home with a horrible cold. I spent a fair amount of time trawling through all her past posts and getting incredibly inspired. And maybe a little hungry!
These citrus and berry friands were delicious with a cup of tea on a Sunday afternoon. I can't wait to try some of the other recipes she has posted soon!

I'm the type of person who gets excited over a cabbage. That might seem sad but this was the first cabbage out of our winter vege garden. It was possibly the best cabbage I've ever eaten in my entire life...

Fill In The Blanks Friday

I used to take part in Fill in the Blanks with my old blog and I thought I would give it a go again.

1.  I am proud of   getting my Bachelors degree, it was hard but I got there in the end and I did it all by myself.

2.   This weekend I will   be going to a play, starting an assignment on relationships, ice skating (I got free tix a little while back!), watching the Super rugby final and catching up with a friend who has just moved up from wellington.

3.  A secret dream I have is    to own a lifestyle block and live off the grid.

4. I can't handle    when people act like things haven't happened and don't acknowledge them.

5. The most annoying thing in the entire world is   buying coffee beans instead of the ground stuff and realising you have no coffee in the morning.

6. The most relaxing thing in the entire world is   reading a book in the bath.

7.  I think everyone should   live their lives for them and not worry about judgement from others.

Happy weekend!
