It was the husband's birthday today - very low key with the 5 of us! We had lunch out at the Library Cafe in Onehunga. I hadn't been to this suburb for a long long time!
We found the house that his Grandad had built many years ago in Onehunga. It is on Grotto Street where there really is a grotto!
I loved the cafe with its books etc - it was extremely busy and we had over half an hour before the food arrived - I was glad I had taken along my new sock to knit! :). The food wasn't bad but not wow either.
We took the boys to the 2nd hand Hard to Find bookshop which I always used to go too - I looked at a gorgeous cross stitch book but decided against it. It is a real rabbit warren.
Had a walk around the high street and a few of the nieghbourhood streets too - I am trying to get out out into different suburbs around the city and explore areas we do not normally go to.
Came home and it really is starting to feel like autumn , especially with daylight savings flicking over last night. Found winter pjs for everyone too - I have barely had to spend any money topping up winter wardrobes which is great!
Two more weeks of school and then hols - yippee.
