There was slip-and-slide in the backyard, climbing through the broken fence to retrieve the ball from the neighbour's yard, palm-wrinkling hours in the pool, sipping full-cal Coke and lattes from a place that sells old scooters. And the kids uploaded some vintage photo apps onto my i-phone (which is the best, do you reckon?) and tried to teach me that new-fangled Instagram.

Driving home Cy opined: "This wine country is great. But it's like we're paying someone to fight at their house." He added with a satisfied sigh: "Let's go back next weekend." And we are. How terribly vintage - a new family tradition.
While I was away I was featured on Chocolate, Cookies and Candies, written by Marlene, a fellow Kiwi, who now lives in London. Her blog is a delicious treat of outfits and scenes from her life. How chuffed am I to find myself in such stylish company - thanks Marlene!
