Saturday, Saturday,!

It was a lovely winter’s day here in the Waikato yesterday.  A sharp frost but one of those mornings that you know is going to turn into a beautiful day with clear blue skies.  I wasn’t disappointed.

We visited one of the region’s best Saturday craft markets, Tamahere Country Market. It’s held the third Sunday of every month and no matter what the weather there’s always a good turnout.  You can get everything from fruit and veg, hot food and drinks, health supplements to arts and crafts.

I scored myself some beautiful natural New Zealand Romney Perindale cross wool.  A whopping 250g for $10.00.

We headed off into central Hamilton, dropping in on the sausage sizzle being held by the Aspergers Support Group we are involved with.  We’re holding another one in two weeks and it’s our turn to run it.

Next followed a leisurely stroll around the shops and lunch at a lovely authentic Japanese restaurant.  My very first time having Japanese.  It was delicious.  We spent a further couple of hours browsing the shops before heading home.  Dinner was takeout pizza for the boys with chicken tenders and kumara fries for me.

A very enjoyable Saturday.
