A pretty busy weekend for us (again). We had the neighbors up for some tea and wine on Saturday. That meant a helluva lot of spring cleaning from the front porch to the toilets. Even managed to give Henri and well-deserved bath.
This was the first ever tea we hosted and we were very excited. Here’s our little tea time spread complete with 3-tier stand:
Our neighbors have 2 little girls and to fight the boredom if we get into too much adult talk, they each came armed with a book to read. How cute is that?! And commendable too.. most of the parents nowadays just stuff their kids hands with an iPad or a handheld game. But they didn’t have much use for the books because Henri was there to keep them company. Except towards the end when the younger one wanted to read her story to Hen. Again.. how cute is that?!
Here’s Henri listening intently to the story:
After they left, we had a little more wine and played Mario 3. Ahh memories.. We couldn’t get past World 1 though. Blame it on the wine.
Today, we had lunch at Sue & Peter’s place in Karori. Beautiful house with a beautiful view.. even better than ours. Just stepping into their living room was breathtaking.
So that was a really social weekend for us, which left us drained. Now for a little snack of leftover brie and chocolate cake. And maybe a little bit more wine. ;)
The show must go on, despite the terrible weather. Spent the morning at SPCA attending the dog walking orientation. First few minutes was all talk.. procedures and important stuff to take note of. Then we headed to the dog area where we were given each our own dog to walk.
Here was mine:
A loving, goofy dog with a bit more energy than the others. Had to exercise these underused arm muscles a bit more during the walk. I wanted to take him home honestly, if not for the fact that our landlady might not approve.
We took the dogs around the park and I did not know but we were actually circling around the zoo. I was surprised to hear an strange clucking sound. Turned out it was an emu!
Can you spot the angry emu angrily clucking his disapporval at having his privacy invaded?
Wet feet and wet jeans but it’s alright. I’ll probably be back in about two weeks or so. The dogs are just so absolutely adorable.
