Good Friends Bring Donuts

July 22, 2017

After a full-on work week, I needed to get some fresh air and decided I would treat myself to a doughnut from Glamour Cake in Lyttelton. It’s pretty bad weather-wise today, with flooding happening in parts of the city, so I thought I’d have a better chance of getting the doughnuts – as they sell out very quickly most days. Sure enough, they had doughnuts, so I bought enough for friends too. The offer of doughnuts was gladly accepted by my friends living near a flood zone.

We turned up in a four wheel drive with doughnuts and sat and had tea while we discussed if they should evacuate, with offers of coming home with us. Even as I write this it sounds ridiculous – but Christchurch folk have developed a black sense of humour for these things, and we joked about emergency doughnuts. Unfortunately, they’ve got some experience with flooding – losing two cars a few years back to a flooded Heathcote River, so they are pretty well-prepared and know the drill. We are now crossing our fingers that the high tide won’t bring the water to their door.

Winter has us in it’s grip. Not too cold though for a brisk walk to the Ferrymead shops.

Had a late afternoon walk around this city today, so decided to pop into Stranges Lane and have an early dinner at Lower 9th Diner.
