My Weekend

Now that our new staff member Karen* has settled in as Isobel's replacement, it was time to have a long weekend off.
Saturday afternoon involved lying on my bed, Kindle reader in hand, a nice warm breeze wafting over me which, you guested it, turned into a 3 hour nap.
On Sunday we had nice drive over to the Wiarapa to have a Christmas lunch with our car club. Food, wine, speeches, food, wine, awards, wine, chatting, planning and an exceptionally great day. We stayed the night over in one of the Martinborough Hotel Heritage Suites, it was really nice. Dinner was at Pinocchio and Breakfast at Medici. Both recommendated.
All in all, a terrific break, no laptop, phone off, no stress.

*Karen was with me for several years at She Designer Excitement and when I heard a whisper she many be available, I wasted no time. She is so genuine, so nice, has great personal style and very calm. She's a treasure.
