postcards from toast nz

we don’t usually go to toast nz events as they have a reputation for ending up full of drunk nz’ers; however we were attracted to this event because we would be spending it in fine company.

going with such fabulous friends definitely was the highlight of the event.

    Looks like such a fun day out ~ & the weather co-operated too! Of course, I got the giggles about the pie. I can never quite understand the fascination. Especially when you could be eating those fantastic green lip mussels!
    Have a nice, relaxing Sunday :)

    Oh god! I haven’t had a pie in 6 years. I almost fainted over your photograph, not expecting it. And Lamingtons!!! It’s been 100 years surely, since the last one. They don’t have sponge here in Belgium.

    Glad you guys had an excellent day though … :-)
