My week in photos as part of Project 365:

I finally wear a skirt to work today – first time for years. Usually it’s too cold inside with the air conditioning, but we’ve fixed that so hooray! Awful photo.

The four of us take off after work to Napier for the weekend. I make the husband stop the car when we spot some miniature horses. This one reminds me of Kurt Cobain.

The weather is fantastic in Napier today.
We go shopping in town, have lunch at a pub (where I am asked for ID, boo!), and visit Hastings where the shops we want to visit are unfortunately closed.
In between Buck’s Fizzes (and beer for the boys) there is some hacky sacking – the most exercise I’ve had in a while!

The weather is not so fantastic in Napier today.
In between the intermittent downpours we get some lunch that includes some fresh cream donuts and lamingtons – yummy!
Monday 19 January 2009
We harvest some peas, courgettes and beans from our garden when we get back from Napier.

Hubby reminds me I need to use up the cream in the fridge.
I make some chocolate cupcakes and ice them with Malibu lemon icing.

There is a power cut this morning and I have to take a cold shower.
I get to work and find I can’t take any lifts up from Lambton Quay to the Terrace. I walk up Plimmer Steps and notice crowds of people unable to get inside and up to their buildings. The power cut is more wide spread than I first thought.
The power is back by the time I arrive at work, about an hour and a half since the cut began.
Who doesn’t love a good sale? I took advantage of the new season sales and picked up some nice things at a fraction of their original prices.
I am currently in love with the fashion of the 50s. Not so much the high-waisted skirts and pants (or “trousers” for the English who are at this moment sniggering at my use of “pants”). I imagine those would cover my boobs on my short frame… But the other skirts, dresses and tops are kawaii desu yo!
Recently I stumbled across the Dolly Dagger website and developed a sudden urgency to go back to the UK. Pity I’m not rich enough to do that. Or even to afford anything in pounds.
So for now I will sigh, dream and hunt down similar things here in New Zealand.
