This week’s small pleasures #102

So here we are again, Monday evening, New Zealand time, and that point in the week where we think about the small pleasures of the week before.

1 Rhubarb 

Saturday dessert…apple and rhubarb crumble….such a perfect combination.

2 Tomatoes

I usually don’t buy tomatoes in the winter, but couldn’t resist these beauties which were on offer.

New Zealand International Film Festival

Yes, the 2018 film festival has started. On Friday we went to see Den skyldige (The Guilty), a Danish film that had me sitting on the edge of my seat) and on Sunday, a Swedish film Gräns (Border), a supernatural thriller.  I’ve put the links in to the festival programme where you can read more about these films.
