So, here we are again, and time to think about this week’s small pleasures. It was a very busy week (with a 14 hour working day on Wednesday!), but there were a few small pleasures nonetheless. Thanks again to Mani over at A New Life Wandering for the idea.
Thursday evening dinner
I was up in Auckland this week and enjoyed dinner at Rosie in Parnell. I had the slow cooked lamb shoulder with date labneh, parsnip, bulgur wheat and almond chermoula. Good food, washed down with a glass of pinot noir.

Small walk in the park
Before dinner, I went for a stroll in the Dove-Myer Robinson Park. Even though it was the wrong season for the roses to be out in the rose garden, the fresh air was welcome after a day indoors.
Entrance to the gardens
One of our best friends from Scotland is visiting right now. On Sunday, we took him over to Martinborough for some wine tasting. After a rather dull start to the day, the sun came out, making for a lovely trip.
