This week’s small pleasures #89

Here we area again with a quick round up of this week’s small pleasures.  It will be the last one of these posts for a few weeks, as Thistles and Kiwis takes a short break.  The blog is tired and in need of some TLC, and a break is part of the process.  Anyway, here we are with this week’s small pleasures.

Cuba Dupa

Sunday’s visit to Wellington’s street festival, Cuba Dupa was great fun.  See what we did in yesterday’s post here.

Any week, every week, Pilates is the best!

Autumn sunshine

The weather has been a bit mixed, but we have also had some lovely, autumn sunshine like in the featured image above.

Feijoas….that fruit that people go mad for here in New Zealand.  They taste like nothing else, and make great ice-cream, chutney, syrups…..and lovely in an apple crumble.
