It has been another stunning day in Wellington, I just can’t believe the perfection of the weather of late! Blue, blue skies, hardly any wind, hot shining sun…. every morning feels like a summer holiday and life is good!!!
KB and I had the day off, so went for a mission around and about…. we drove up Mount Victoria to enjoy the views of the harbour….
The water was so turquoise today, it took my breath away….
This is a shot of pretty much the whole of Wellington CBD, along the waterfront where all of the tall buildings are lined up is where the “suits” hang out and where parliament lives, and the rest off to the left is the more fun part of the City! (where I work and study… and spend far too much time in cafes drinking coffee and eating cake!)
We found a funny information board up Mt Vic about the wind in Wellington…. Wellington is known for it’s wind, I never believed it until I moved up North for two years. When I came back I realised that yes, it’s a very windy city!
KB points to the wind she thinks is “normal” here! Meaning, don’t bother with the umbrella because it’s just going to get blown inside out, if it’s raining, just get wet! (She is exaggerating, normal gusts are two spots above her estimate!)
After zooming around, having some fun we had to stop at our fave cafe for coffee…
Before cruising home to enjoy the afternoon sun filling our lovely little home….
Right now, my rocker gets the most sunlight in our house, lovely in the morning, then from about 2 in the afternoon until 7.30pm when it goes down. Consequently, Raymond has decided that my rocker is his new spot and is quite persistent about this…. I get up for a second and he’s in! Lucky for me I’m not too soft hearted and don’t have a problem moving him to another spot ha ha…. I can’t sit anywhere else, I start to twitch if I’m away from my stash for too long! He has not had the best day today, after a minor claw de-sharpening this morning (a very necessary one trust me!) he took off for a few hours probably to sharpen them elsewhere! All was forgiven by the time we got home….
Speaking of my stash before…. it was suggested by the lovely Kate that I might need to indulge in some new wool to get over this creative slump…. Great suggestion!
And five lovely soft bouncy balls of beautiful Ashford wool are getting me in the mood for a bit of hook-a-rama for sure!
Goodnight Sun! Hopefully we’ll see you again tomorrow!
I hope your day has been beautiful no matter what the weather,
Lots and lots of LOVE and happy thoughts from Alice and Raymond XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
