Weekend wrap

Had a lovely weekend…we got away, at least to the other side of Auckland! We stayed at a bed and breakfast/hotel place across from the rose gardens, ended up not going to the restaurant we’d booked, and ordering room service. Food was amazing. BF had a huge pork roast with salad and baked potato, and I had salmon with mashed potato and salad – divine. We both love mashed potatoes so there was a little bit of a fight there – I could eat mashed potatoes for eternity and be happy – and I usually never feel like I’ve had enough, but last night I did. (And at breakfast; there was cheesy mashed potatoes alongside the sausages and bacon….) I even took photos, the food was so beautiful!

It was great getting away and being waited on, etc. Getting away from home, and all the dramas involved. There was also a bathtub, so we had our first bath in years…super relaxing! I’m so keen to do it more often. The only downside really was BF gave me a silver paua bangle. It must have been a little loose, because I realised in the evening it wasn’t on my wrist anymore.  I get the feeling it slipped off pretty early on. It’s weird though, because it’s quite solid and heavy you’d think I would have  heard it fall and hit the ground! But it wasn’t in the car. So odds are it’s somewhere along Ponsonby Road or in Victoria Park New World (where, incidentally, self-checkouts are the shiz…). I feel pretty lame. Who loses their present the day after it’s given to them? Make me feel better, please…
