Mmmm, delicious milk and white chocolate cookies - a family fave from the Edmonds Cookbook - a kiwi classic. I make these so often that I don't need to look at the recipe anymore!
And speaking of chocolate ... my children made me laugh this week when I showed them my new bracelet. They thought it was made of white chocolate! Too cute.
While browsing around one of my local op shops recently I stumbled across this dress that turned out to be hand crocheted. I don't think it's necessarily something I would wear (even though it fits like a glove) but I was drawn to it for the workmanship in its creation. The washing instructions on it are hilarious, I should have taken a pic of the label. It is almost bossy in its tone on how careful you have to be in looking after it. I can imagine the words coming directly from the mouth of the poor person/people who made the dress! I'm sure I'd be bossy too after all those hours whipping up roses and leaves! The weight of it is incredible, the thread is really heavy. I just couldn't leave it in the shop.
It's the last day of Daylight Saving here in New Zealand. I always get a little grumpy when our clocks go back an hour and the evenings are darker too soon. Especially after the gorgeous summery day we have had today. The four of us went for a walk along the waterfront just down the road from our house. We took bikes, scooters and lots of bread for the ducks. It was fabulous. I have been wanting to stop and get some pics of these lovely boatsheds which I drive by nearly every day - and today was a perfect opportunity to do it. They are quirky, colourful and very individual and I love them. I keep thinking how lovely it would be to own one and be able to sit in the sunshine, right on top of the water and crochet the afternoon away .....
