I’ve been saving up all my photos from the last 6 weeks so I could do an A to Z recap. :D
A is for All In – I had a game of poker with The Boy and a friend and I wooped their asses. I think the shiny shiny cupcakes and hearts we used as chips gave me special powers.
B if for Baking – Chickie Little has been at it again. She’s made a few new things this month, one of them being lemon meringue pie (one of my absolute favourites!).
C is for Cherry Coke – The supermarket closest to us is one of the biggest and best in the country. They have a few UK imports now and cherry coke is one of them. It was my first time trying it. Quite nice but I’m not sure that I’d regularly spend $2 on a can.
D is for Deer – Remember those shoes? The store I bought them from had a big display honouring Babycham and the Babycham deer. Too cool!
E is for Entourage – I watched all 6 seasons this month. 0_0
F is for Flowers – My friend Shonali gave birth to a beautiful little boy. I gave her these flowers on a visit to the hospital.
G is for Grass Car – Spotted when we attended Craft 2.0 at the New Dowse.
H is for Hangover Cure – Whenever I feel sick, hungover or otherwise, I can count on an e2 to get me perky again.
I is for Iceberg – As a publicity stunt an “iceberg” was placed in the Wellington harbour to bring attention to global warming.
J is for Jewellery – Lots of new stuff added this month. My favourite of the moment is the little ghost.
K is for Kitty – That crazy crazy downstairs cat has been stealing our attention all month!
L is for Large Insects – This one being a Weta. The Boy looked over at me from the kitchen and said “Kim, don’t freak out, but there’s a weta”. 0_0 Weta have a reputation for being huge scary insects, thankfully this one was a baby, and The Boy thought it was dead. It was only playing though. I’m so glad I have a boy around to deal with this type of thing (and by deal with I mean put outside, not squish).
M is for Maranui – This much beloved cafe (and surf club) of Wellington caught on fire and was gutted. It will be back in about a year, but until then Wellingtonians mourn. The Boy’s sister is a manager and world class barista at this cafe so we’re hoping for it to be back ASAP.
N is for the New Dowse – I saw it for the first time with the girls this month while attending Craft 2.0.
O is for Oddities of Nature – These funny cluster things are strange looking.
P is for Photographs – Sometimes the blurry shit ones are my favourites.
Q is for Quirky Street Art – While driving to breakfast we noticed another fence that had been covered in art. I love it when installations like this go up. The fence is going to be there regardless because it will soon be turning into a construction site, so you might as well use the space wisely.
R is for Recipes – I’ve been trying out a few new ones. This mushroom and courgette bread was pretty damn delicious.
S is for Spring – I think it’s making a comeback. I’ll just ignore the torrential rain which forced its way under our front door a couple of nights ago.
T is for Tui – These beautiful birds love the kowhai that’s flowering right outside our house.
U is for Urban Wetlands – I took a walk down to Waitangi park after a doctors visit and snapped some photos of the urban wetland they have going. I really love what they did with the area, even if it cost a shitload.
V is for View – This is what I can see from my blogging chair. Usually the blinds are down because I lounge around in my robe all day. But when I take photos inside I pull it up like this to get more light.
W is for WordCamp – I blogged about the fun.
X is for X rays – I had a bone scan about 5 years ago. It checks the density of your bones, and because I had been on steroids for a while my first scan showed I was at the low end of the acceptable scale for bone density at my age. This time around I’ve been off steroids for over a year and my bones are looking a bit stronger and developing as they should be. Yay.
Y is for Year End – Or so The Warehouse would have you believe. Who actually buys christmas wrapping paper on the first of August?!
Z is for Zero – Which is how much I’ll be paying for my next meal at Wagamama. This photo was taken at my last meal at Wagamama. We had received vouchers from the Entertainment Book to say sorry for the crappy meal we had a Cafe Pica. Wagamama then held a competition for the best photo taken while eating at one of their restaturants and I got second prize. :D Another $40 worth of vouchers for me. Sweet.
