We have had a very busy and fun week with our Aussie billet- Jessica. Simon introduced her to garage saling on Saturday morning and she picked up some lovely things to take home for her family- including an antique pocket mirror with faux diamonds and emeralds that was absolutely beautiful!! Anyhoo - we took her to the Riccarton market on Sunday and she was able to get some NZ souvenirs thankfully- now that town is closed where do you go for NZ souvenirs?? Then we went to Orana Park and Jess loved feeding the giraffes and being close to the animals.
The highlight of the weekend was undoubtably our Halloween party on Saturday night. Usually we go to the Prebbleton party but they changed the date and the venue on us- the party is now next Friday and Jess would miss out so we decided to have one anyway! I think that because it was so successful and so much fun that it might get added to the annual party list at the Evans household!
We ended up with about 30 people- most dressed in costume and we did some games and dancing and had lots of fun. We raided the $2 shop for decorations and spent Sat making scary food and decorating the house up ready! So beware - this will be a long photo heavy post!
