Last weekend the girls and I took a lovely trip to Napier. Most of the North Island is in the grip of a drought, recalling the summers I remember from childhood. In fact, while I’ve been yearning for the long, hot summers, this one has probably been the longest and the hottest in memory! But aside from the weather – which was not the reason we headed north! – we had a simply amazing high tea, organized by my lovely friend Morgan and her mum, Jo. What a treat!
