This week’s small pleasures: week 30

Today, Monday is a public holiday here in New Zealand, the Labour Day holiday.  There is a long gap between this day and our last public holiday which was at the start of June, so people really look forward to this day.  Anyway, it was another busy week but there were still a few small pleasures to be had from going to see a new piece performed by Footnote Dance to having some time to bake and blog.

Friday afternoon

I took time off work…..which you can read about in Friday’s blog post.


It’s always fun to watch the ducks, and there are a few ducklings around too in the Duck Pond in the Botanic Gardens.  There were a few sleepy ducks too, such as the one in the featured image above.

Thanks again to Mani over at A New Life Wandering for the idea.

Check out Middle Europe for their small pleasures this week too.
