Another weekend away
I am off tomorrow for a weekend away with my friend Bronwen. We are both under some stress in our jobs (she is in real estate) and feeling the pinch of the economic downturn. Time out helps boost our flagging spirits. This time, we're going to stay here :This cottage is at Akaroa - see below. Akaroa is unique in New Zealand as it's the only place settled by the French. The streets are mainly "Rue something-or-other" and there are gorgeous little cottages. It's an arty-crafty place, way out on Banks Peninsula. You can see more of the lovely local dwellings here.
And today I had my hair done, which always makes me feel better.
Have a good weekend everyone, I'll see you next week. And hopefully a lot of knitting will get done, as the weather looks pretty awful.
