friday feasting and summer evenings...

This week has been - interesting. To say the least! A mixture of interesting medical issues (mine and others'), days off work due to illness, being laid off (not me!), getting a new job less than 24 hours later.... Crazy town!

Circumstances provided that V has been at home the past two days, so this morning we had brekky together and then headed into town to visit the weekly farmers markets...

We wandered around the markets before ducking into Swell coffee for a caffeinated pick-me-up (or two!)

Coffee, coffee, coffee! I had about 4 today - bouncing off the walls, people!

After work, V and I headed to the monthly Summer food markets at the beach...

Much to my great delight, one of my fave local restaurants, Michaels Trattoria, had a stall at the markets! Their menu of yummy offerings was definitely superior

Delicious fresh oysters and prawns!

Antipasto platter...

A slow-roasted Tuscan pork roll with crackling, roasted capcisum and rocket...

The magic that is poffertjes!

After dinner, we went for a walk around the harbour - so, so pretty tonight!

Sooooo sunny!

Marcs dress
Tony Bianco sandals
Jag leather tote
Oroton sunglasses
Tiffany&Co rings

Jasper is disdainful of my attempts to play...
(although he is currently purring at me and trying to sit on my lap and give me kisses - smoocher!)

Jade gets up close and personal with the camera...

Happy Friday all!
