he final week of the school holidays saw us jaunt up the road to see Joyous and Ruby Tuesday, our lovely friends in the Hawkes Bay. We sauntered around the local Agricultural and Pastoral Show on a hot afternoon, ate ridiculously good food, gave our boy his first outdoor bath, read in the sun, shopped for vintage treasure and talked excitedly about their pepe due in the summer. It was grand.
Yeah – that’s a horse torch I found op-shopping. It neighs and snorts. You can imagine my delight.
