A few of our favourite things...

Miriam: Tucked away in a rather unassuming location in Ellerslie, lies the hustle and bustle of the Mexican Specialties. This wee shop sells Mexican products and on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays you can also enjoy a 'truly home made Mexican lunch'. The place was packed when we went for lunch around 2pm on Saturday, but we managed to stalk out a table. The food was great and the staff were very helpful, even suggesting I buy coke from the dairy next door and drink it there as they were out of cold ones. I was intrigued by the array of interesting dishes coming from the kitchen, so will have to return again soon to sample more of the menu.

Becs: A visit to Hanmer over the long weekend involved a trip to the Woolshed Gallery, where some winter woolies were purchased. A snuggly pair of lambskin slippers for Daisy, a possum silk merino headband for me for winter walks (while Miss Daisy is snug as a bug in her pimped out buggy) and the best discovery of all perhaps - a pair of sheepskin bootliners to go inside my gumboots. I tried them out last weekend and they will definitely make Saturday mornings Posh Porridging at the market a lot cosier. They are just $12 a pair, a small price to pay for such luxury!
