It’s Monday evening here in New Zealand, so time for the weekly small pleasures post with a slightly Christmas theme.
Always a small pleasure to have a massage, but what was not a small pleasure is the situation in parts of Wellington post earthquake. Absolute Therapy, where I go for massage is situated close to multistorey car park that is having to be pulled down as it has been deemed unsafe. Their building is fine, but for safety reasons it looks like they may have to move while the car park is being pulled down. Other small businesses in the street, such as Poquito (that does the best lemon, honey and ginger in Wellington), have been closed for a several weeks. Anyway, I’ll continue to support Absolute Therapy and other small businesses in the area such as Enigma, where we had lunch post massage. The pictures below are of the closed street.

As you may have read in my last post, we got our supply of Swedish food for the festive season ahead. Included in that parcel was a large tube of Kalles Kaviar, which I enjoyed with a boiled egg for breakfast this morning. Wonderful.
We had a special morning tea at work today, and I could not resist a mince pie. It’s my first of the season, and may well be my only one, unless I make my own. I was not disappointed.
