After being ill for two days and then busy after work eating out a relaxed weekend at home was on the cards. Before I go into that, we enjoyed catching up with Lucy and Steve on Victoria Street on Wednesday. It's been a while since we've seen them so good to catch up over tasty food. And huge thanks to Steve for passing on some access passes to the Nike staff shop...whoop whoop! So exciting!
Thursday we had a reunion with Toni and Peter who are the couple we toured Tasmania with on a big bus all to ourselves. They live in Christchurch and were in town visiting their daughter and son in law. We had a great dinner and we met Kirsty and Marty (the daughter and son in law) and we enjoyed some yummy wine and lots of animated chatter.
Friday was a long overdue drinks session with Rachel and Tim. Absolutely loved catching up and hearing how they have been settling in to Melbourne life. We thoroughly enjoyed sharing their enthusiasm for this city we all now call home for now. Mutual friends and readers of this, I can tell you they are both well. They're enjoying the sunshine, the food and wine and the running tracks!
We sat in the sunshine by the seafood peddlar and enjoyed lots of different dishes including some mussels, oysters Kilpatrick, Cajun grilled flathead, sambal skate wing and a Morrocan fish soup.
