I was very excited when I was waiting at the meat counter at the grocery store on Saturday.... I noticed they had what they called 'potato gems' on display....
also known as TATER TOTS (to American's at least)! YAY - so I bought half a kilo and we had a few for dinner as a side and yumm yumm yumm they were GREAT!
We also made our own pizza on a base we bought at the store - tuna & pesto - lovely!
Then last night we thought hmmm if we are having people over and it is cold - where do we eat? So I got on the website trading post (where people post ads for things they want to sell) and I found a GREAT table & chairs that was used but in great nick! We called up straight away and set a time for Sunday for us to go and pick it up!
We got there a little early, so wandered around the high street .....then we get a call from the lady - saying she sold it to someone else - a few minutes ago - and they went to get cash - unless we had cash ON us - so we better hurry.... odd. So Murray ran down the road and secured the deal (after all WE called first - how unfair!!!!). The other people came back and had 'words' with her - they were furious - she kept saying 'stop doing this to me.' Ummm I'm sorry silly woman - you did this to yourself by offering a sale to two different people duh. But anyhow - we got it:)
And it looks GREAT in our flat
I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE it - it's not new - but it suits our purposes perfectly right now:)
Then Murray got to work in the kitchen - YUMMMMM
We had a lovely BBQ lunch with Hamish, Cassie & Zephyr - nice to catch up!
Cooking the last piece of steak on the bbq after they left to use on our sandwiches tomorrow!
Lovely sunset - today was SO warm - out on the balcony it actually got so hot that we decided to eat inside! Not bad for autumn!
Later we took a lovely walk down to Manly beach and walked along the water dipping our toes.... I WISH we had brought the camera - the sunset was gorgeous - all pinks and purples with surfers on their 'last wave of the day'. The sand was COLD but the water was actually warm - you could feel a warm breeze around your ankles from the ocean - bizarre!
We then finished off the night with the new XMen movie Wolverine - eh - pretty good - very overdramatic - but Hugh Jackman is great:)
I also got our Peruvian tablecloth out of storage to see how it looks on the new table - the llama likes it!
