Pretty Little Things

Yesterday I had to visit a sports physician to find out whats wrong with my knee, so ended up taking the day off and had a lovely day shopping, eating and working out. Ok, the working out bit was not as lovely (apart from some of the beautiful people at the gym....haha)
 
On my way to my appointment I saw orchids for sale on the side of the road - 3 stems for $7 - a bargain! So had to stop off and get some cash to treat myself....

Piha

Auckland put up a beautiful weekend with stunning weather these last few days. The weekends are usually when the bad weather kicks in so I decided to make the most it and squeeze in a bit of exercise at the same time!

So on Saturday I took my doggies out to Piha for a walk along the beach - and dragged my brothers along too

Wild Oats

I have porridge every morning currently as its lovely and warming in the cold winter mornings. But at the moment I add brown sugar to sweeten the taste - which diminishes the healthyness of eating oats!

Im trying to watch my calorie intake as summer is just around the corner, so have been looking at some healthy but still yummy recipes online. Not including the nutella croissants I posted earlier haha!

This looks like just what I need to eliminate the brown sugar in the mornings

Sunday Wanderings

I was looking after my little brothers this weekend, and after playing soccer mom on Saturday I decided to take them to Western Springs with the dogs for some fresh air and exercise on Sunday.

Auckland Night Markets

On Friday night I went down to the local night markets for dinner. Recently Auckland has had these markets pop up in different suburbs across the city, ranging from Thursday - Sunday. People set up stalls with all sorts of food such as Mexican, Hungarian, Mediterranean, Japanese, French crepes etc.

We had some delicious Mediterranean bread stuffed with spinach and feta, some pork dumplings and a wood fire pizza with jalapenos, salami and olives. Was so yum!!! I really wanted a banana and chocolate crepe for dessert but was way too full and had to limit myself somewhere!

I took a few snaps of the guy making the dough for the pizza - he was throwing them in the air to stretch out the dough which was a little impressive
