If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…on this sunny Sunday morning, we would be sharing croissants and bread, and enjoying a lazy breakfast. There were white peaches too, sliced to nibble on the side, and blackcurrant jam should you wish.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would talk about how lucky we are to be in New Zealand at this time, how we are able to go to the cinema, shops, galleries and the theatre, but that we still monitor the cases coming into the country and noted the small number of community cases who had been in managed isolation in the same hotel. As to when we will get the vaccine, well looks like later this year.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…I would tell you that on Friday night we went to see the British comedian Russell Howard, and how this was the first show like this since 2019. I say he was good but the show overran by half an hour. Still, you say, you certainly got a full evening of comedy.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would move to sit outside in the sun and look at the plants, loving the little ears on the lavender. We would talk about cooking, about recipes we had tried from Ottolenghi’s Simple, and about how I was going to make a hot smoked salmon and courgette (zucchini) tart for tomorrow, inspired by Sophie Hansen’s book. You say that looks good. I say, why don’t you come round for lunch on Monday since it is a holiday? And you say thanks – I will.
Thanks to Natalie the Explorer for inviting me to her weekend coffee share. This is my first real experience of a blog party, and looking forward to meeting other bloggers out there.
