So here we are again, this Monday evening in New Zealand, and time to reflect on this week’s small pleasures. It wasn’t a good week what with one thing and another, but there were still a few things that brought a smile to my face.
A cheese scone
A warm scone and a cup of tea is always a small pleasure to me as regular readers of this blog well know. A cheese scone and a pot of green tea with rose at Ekor Book Cafe was just the small pleasure needed before Pilates on Saturday.
This week’s basket included more sausages from Field Roast, this time I got the smoked apple sage which sound delightful. I also got some parsnip crisps, an avocado, more grapefruit and oranges (my thing right now), a cucumber, tomatoes, more halloumi, some baba ghanouj, a tin of butter beans and some rye bread from Arobake.
I planted some earlier this week, and the radishes have at least popped up (hence only half a tub being shown). Looking forward to adding them to a salad.
On Saturday night, I went to see the final year contemporary students’ performance Once at the New Zealand School of Dance. This was a special show, composed of ten pieces for the ten dancers, choreographed especially for each dancer by graduates of the school who have since gone on to be performers and choreographers. I particularly enjoyed the second half of the show, but all in all, a great night and such a brilliant idea to celebrate the 50 years of the school.
Thanks to Mani over at A New Life Wandering for the original idea.
