A new view from Manchester Street

October 18, 2012

The view from Manchester Street – the PWC building is all gone and you can now see a brick building that is on the corner of Armagh and Colombo Streets. It was very odd realising I could see Armagh Street from that spot…

A Walk Up Mount Pleasant

October 9, 2012

I went for a walk up the Mt Pleasant hill this afternoon and as you can see I took quite a few snaps along the way. I was only going as far as the Mt Pleasant Reserve but decided to keep going up the hill and over down into Mccormacks Bay. I followed my ‘nose’ most of the way, but then used Google directions on my phone to find a quick way down. It took me through some streets I’d never been on before. I saw a lot of damage along the way. Some homes are probably beyond repair (though in Christchurch now, you just never know – it all comes down to what the insurance company thinks is repairable).

The homes just above Mccormacks Bay are very bad – in fact I suspect there were very few people living in the houses on one of the streets I walked down.

The lines on the section in the photo above are a rough house plan. It’s located on The Brae (which looks down onto Main Street). It gave me a lot of hope when I saw the spray painted plans on the ground. Someone is moving forward – they are getting their home back.

Cupcake Cuteness at New World St Martins

October 6, 2012

I needed to pick up a few groceries items for dinner tonight, so decided to check out the brand new supermarket in St Martins (the New World). Must say it’s a lovely supermarket and it might just become my regular. Though if they are always going to have such amazing cupcakes on sale, it might be very hard to stay on track with my healthy eating regime (I do allow myself the occasional treat though).

These are so cute, the people that made them are mighty clever and talented!

I was also stopped in my tracks as I walked down the bulk food aisle, as it had these large containers of licorice all-sorts. And after photographing the All Sorts second-hand store the other day, I’ve been thinking about licorice all sorts a bit! Of course, I resisted. There’s no way a container that size would last a weekend at my house!

Allsorts on Ferry Road

October 2, 2012

Allsorts is a second hand dealer on Ferry Road – it’s recently had a bit of a makeover with new management and new lolly sign-age out the front. Now every time I go past them I really fancy having some Licorice All Sorts! Ended up buying two bird pictures from them.
