My fabulous weekend

Linking up with:

Is it cold today or what? Or maybe it's just me. I feel like winter has returned again, but then I look out my window and see this
and I know it's definitely still spring.

I had a tiring, but wonderful weekend. Coffee with friends at the excellent Nectar! Great customer service. Even when we were the last ones there and we knew they wanted us to leave so they could clean up, we didn't get asked or even any dirty looks AND they cleaned up the mess my lovely 9month old made. IE, a lot! Without complaining, and with a smile. The food was incredible as was the coffee even if it was a bit small for my liking. I only have a pic from their website. I don't seem to carry my camera at convenient times.

A friend came over on Saturday night while hubby was away in Auckland for the France v All Blacks game. Enjoyed a salmon steak with a barley, brocolli and orange salad. Sounds like a weird combo but was delicious! 

It was quite ironic that I watched two Johnny Depp movies - Rango & The Tourist and the one I thought I was going to enjoy I didn't, while the other I thought would be filled with swearing & violence wasn't. Rango was super strange and definitely not a kids movie like I thought it would be. And the Tourist was surprisingly good. Not cliche, had a great twist at the end, very clean with little swearing with only one blasphemy. Incredible. Hardly any movies that I know of like that these days. Needless to say I watched it again today while Master T slept.
Hubby created this for me on Sunday night
And I had fun turning foccacia dough into olive & herb pita pockets for our shrimp & chicken stir fry dish. Delicious!

How was your weekend?


  1. I KNOW how can we (in Auckland) go from sun sun sun on Saturday to fire ROARING on Sunday - 4 seasons in 1 weekend

  2. Oh wow - I'm drooling with all the delicious food stuff!!!

  3. ooh might have to get that Tourist out

  4. Ooooh I've wanted to get The Tourist out for ages but I have heard such bad reviews that I haven't bothered. I think I might have to check it out!

  5. Yummy As sounding (& looking!) food!!
    We thought Rango was pretty dumb too. Haven't seen the tourist but will check it out now.
