Last weekend a few bloggers went away for a girls weekend.
It was awesome. Honestly, slap bang in the middle of weeks of craziness for all of us,
it was just what the doctor ordered!

There was a lot of talking. A lot of talking.
We talked a lot. We also crafted. 
Miriam was embroidering little houses,
Juliet was sewing hexagons.

Laura almost finished the most amazing dress ever.
Cat was hooking and Leonie was, was
well Leonie was looking after us all amazingly well.
I had five attempts at getting my ripple blanket to work and thanks to Leonie
who did three rows for me, I succeeded. 
(I put pictures of some of the other girls work in yesterday's post)

We went to the Matakana Farmers Market
We visited a cute opshop (more on that later)
We went out for dinner (terrible terrrible service)
We met some other lovely bloggers (Simone and Sammy)

We ate great food and we tried on dresses at Anna Streton.
It was great. Oh did I mention that we talked? yes we did.

Matakana Market was lovely. All fresh produce and tasty food.

Whitebait fritters for breakfast - Yes Please!

There was plenty of hugs and lots of laughter.

I walked in the door on Sunday night to find a very sick little girl
and have been mummying her all week.
Tomorrow I have a three hour exam to finish the first paper for my degree. Life just is busy.
but last weekend was just what we needed!
