SUNDAY / 5

20140225-215800.jpgThat there little neck stole my heart this weekend. Home to Adelaide and my niece Daisy's hair is just long enough and she sits quiet enough (on occasion) for my sister to tie it in a knot right at the top of her head. And it makes for hundreds more kisses on her little neck and cheeks, I just couldn't help it. Sheย wore the sweetest little blue vintage dress to dinner, a hand-me-down from my cousin Rosie and previously Harriet's, it was lovely to see her all grown into it. I had hoped to take it easy this weekend, but didn't do much of a job of it. I started out with far too much white wine and ended with not enough sleep, but it was wonderful all the same. Drinks with a friend got carried away on Friday and I didn't quite make it to the Fringe which is a crying shame - it only comes once a year and rarely am I home for it. It really is the best time to be from Adelaide or in Adelaide. I made up for it with a jovial and picturesque feast at Mesa Osteria for my little brother's 30th the next night though (happy day, Padddy!), and lots of food and wine while I was at it. Nicest was a big Hills walk all to myself on Sunday morning and a little gardening with my folks over a pot of coffee, and then Sunday night dinner at our forever and always family favourite, Estia's. It's a very easy and yummy Greek restaurant at Henley Beach, right by the pier and the sun sets over the water in Adelaide, so it's always the best view in town. Golden hour with a whole heap of Croser, garlic dips, grilled cheese and fresh calamari and prawns. You can see why we like it there...

LAST YEAR.ย
