Girls showed New York a bit of orange last Sunday – Nichole wore some orange to keep me company! Had brunch and a wander and came upon a cool looking orange bike at a random store in Tribeca.
Also got to see proof that Triburbia as Tribeca is often colloquially referred to because it’s one suburb on Manhattan that attracts families is true! All these strollers parked outside a Tribeca cafe at brunch time!

Sara and Lucy have adopted a lovely furry kitty and keep sending me pictures of her – trying to entice me to go to Australia I think but for now, I’ll just introduce you all to Rosie and make her famous on my blog!

I’m feeling all special with renewed love for my iPad (even though it’s a hand-me-down) now that it has a limited edition orange smart cover on it! I seem to be using it more.
It’s thanks to Keith who visited us last week – I may’ve suggested strongly that an Orange Girl would like an orange cover more than he would … we bribed him with a brand new clean green cover … in the end he said he was bored with orange (what?!) so it was handed on to me. Yipeeeee!
Always nice to see Keith, and the coffee he brings from Supreme … and the orange cover. Mwwaahh!

Nice evening in Mother & Father-in-law’s yard looking out at the sea – bubbles and chips in the fresh air. Lovely.

Staying with SDF this week and we had Wednesday Dinner Club at her house – just like old times except she actually cooked. Very impressed! We also played around with her camera, teasing her by posing as she does for our outfits to be photographed. Then I got hold of her special animal stilettos and pretended I was on Next Top (heavy) Model! Pics on her blog.

We were in Blenheim on a bit of a milestone day – Aidan’s first solo day of morning kindy – 5 days a week, 4 hours a time. Off we went with Steph to do groceries, coffee and other errands.

Haven’t seen Mr A in 6 months! He’s enormous, has short hair, goes to morning kindy for 4 hours at a time, rides a trike, speaks in full sentences (most of the time when not using one-word demands), wears undies, feeds himself at the table, shows you how to do stuff and uses an iPad!
He still loves story time with The Mister.

Great to be back in Blenheim visiting our friends. Popping out for coffee with Steph is a very rare treat – Mr A is off at kindy now so she was free to play ladies! We even found a cafe in Blenheim that serves Supreme coffee – Figaros.

Had a Wednesday Dinner Club reunion special last night – first night back in Wellington and we stayed with SDF. Before we headed out to Capitol for dinner we all posed in her fashionista spot for a remote-controlled self-time pic – giggly girls and a staunch dude – me all girlied up in my new shoes so SDF could see them first hand. She was impressed! Heaps more photos on her post about the evening.
This is my favorite!
And here are the happy girls at Capitol.
Dinner at Capitol was fab as usual – and one of the chefs and the maitre d’ recognized us which was cool. It felt like the food was more expensive than I remembered but that might be comparing it to US prices. Food was delicious although my pasta and tomatoes had a touch too much marjoram.

No Jam-off this year but The Mister was keen to make jam to take back to San Francisco – hopefully they arrive in one piece and we don’t have jammy socks and smalls. Have only had a quick taste and I’m sure it’s the best yet!
