Don't drink and fry

I've said it before and I'll say it again - shopping is always an interesting experience in Auckland.
Spotted in the meat section was this interesting piece of marketing: Don't drink and fry. It's a nod to the number of casualties across New Zealand, particularly in the warmer months, when Kiwis throw a couple of mussels, prawns and sausages on the barbie, crack open a few beers, and suddenly have a fire on their hands!
On a more positive note, we're still enjoying the outdoors and fitting in plenty of outdoor exercise while we can before the cooler weather begins in Earnest. A walk in Auckland is always interesting,
because you never know what you might stumble across. Spotted in Ponsonby: An ad for a missing unicorn... Missy immediately was hopeful we would find it!
On Sunday, we did something which we haven't done for a while, and went out for breakfast. The kids are loving Auckland food, as you can see here! (That's C. tucking into bacon and cheese omelette and grain toast).
Later, Miss H. had a date at a birthday party for one of her school friends. The mum had organised for Kids Party Nails to take care of the activity, which involved a beauty therapist coming in and painting the very excited posse of girls' fingernails. There were also other nail-themed activities, and the kids all took a goodie-bag home of
fingernail polish and the like. Looks like, we'll have a high standard to live up to for the next
round of birthdays!

Paradise for little girls

The finished product - H's painted nails.

Overwhelmed with happiness!
