    Summer weather, New Zealand skies, cold drinks, meat pies… sounds wonderful. (I’ll have to take your word on the merits of ginger beer!) Have a great holiday!

    But this week it is damp and wintery here too! A bit of a shock for me after three weeks of 30 degrees in Perth. You are not coming through Auckland at all?

    It’s so good to be back! We’ve been enjoying great food in Nelson, courtesy of the Boyfriend’s mother – who is a wonderful cook – flat whites at the local cafés, lots of fragrant Sauvignon Blanc in the sunshine – and plenty of rain today! That’s not so bad, though, as we spent the night at the Boyfriend’s family bach near Lake Rotoiti, nice to hear the rain on the roof in the morning and snuggle down for another hour in bed.Barbara – you must have had a major shock if you returned to today’s kind of weather. Unfortunately I won’t be travelling through Auckland this time round. We’re flying direct to Singapore from Christchurch. Maybe we’ll finally get to meet up the next time I’m in New Zealand.

    Hello Stranger, Have spent the last hour reading bibliocook.com, didn’t realise the time passing. I’m now starving. Next time you’re in North Cork let me know and maybe we could try and meet-up. Have printed off the receipe for Cinnamon Apple Cake and will attempt it over the weekend! Really enjoyed the site. Maeve G.
