Holiday slideshow

Want to see what we did last week? Imagine looking at these images in a darkened room, accompanied by an interminable commentary, and it will be just like a proper old-fashioned slideshow…

The Small Girl makes a run for it

Peacherines, bought in a cardboard box from a taciturn orchardist

My latest favourite find (the wine, not Big Teddy)

Holiday cooking rule #1: when in doubt, barbecue everything

Holiday cooking rule #2: When in even greater doubt, get fish and chips
Life’s great mysteries answered by the Waimarama fish ‘n chip shop

 That was our holiday, more or less. What have you been up to while I was away from the kitchen?

    that blackboard is hilarious!!!… I often wonder why people do their jobs if they seem to hate it so much… bet those chips were amazing cooked in fat!… we've been mainly working, eating and sleeping this last week, so you've not missed much!

    Aw, hope you had a good time – Small Girl doesn't seem in the least daunted by that vast ocean. Battered mars bars – he he. Teh fish and chip shop where we used to live did those, but I refrained from trying one. I had a couple of days jaunt away, which was good – hope to get a post sorted out for it at some point.

    Oh peacherines look devine – as does that wine, and the BBQ and the chips. Perhaps because all are photographed in rays of sunshine and warmth?!!! Rather nippy here – icebreakers are getting a lot of use. I'm sure back home you're just content with the ice xx

    Looks like you had great fun. Chips cooked in fat… I like that. The chips look so good and not greasy at all.
    I've been up to nothing much. Just the usual, work, eat, etc. I cannot wait for some holidays.
    Great to have you back. 🙂
