Turn our Colombian Espresso fresh flavoured milk into an ice cold Frappuccino. Just blend ice and a 300ml bottle of milk until smooth. Serve in a tall, chilled glass topped with whipped cream and a little grated nutmeg, then enjoy!
A bucket of beautiful flowers today from the garden - dahlias mignonette salvia oregano astrantia poppy heads and garlic flowers 🌺 just love being in my garden seeing the spring flowers die back and the segue into summer pickings.
Nicole woke up with no idea she’d be jumping off the Auckland Harbour Bridge by lunchtime! She won our Live ‘Hunt the Pump to Jump’ competition then jumped on the very same day - now that’s grabbing life by the bottle!

This weekend Natty and I are celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary!! Shit I'm a lucky bugger. Sometimes in life you have to pinch yourself and look at the amazing people around you and realise how good you've got it! I'm taking her away for a nice night tomorrow. Best 12 years of my life, probably the longest 12 years of hers.... ❤🍺🍷😍
Sitting here having a brew round the BBQ talking about how big of a fuck up this whole earthquake recovery is. Too many pencil pushers calling the shots achieving quite honestly SOD ALL at a snails pace. Collectively NZ has enough decent gear parked up at mines no longer operating that would shift a whole mountain in a few months ,but we are dicking around arguing cream rates for local companies to push quite honestly next to no dirt. We are dealing with a national disaster not a high spot in Billy's sandpit. There are literally local businesses on the verge of bankruptcy waiting for something to happen who will very possibly never see business again before the roads reopen. Shoot the c@nt who put the roadblock on the inland road and let's see something happen. Ideal scenario: pump a few Savo missiles into each slip then push them over the bank, peel back a decent batter incase it lets go again so we aren't back to square one. Problem solved. Reality: Susan needs to email Stefan to ask for permission to disturb already f@cked wildlife habitat as it could upset a seal. Let me know what you think below
5 years ago today in Taranaki, Lucy Lawless and six others scaled the derrick on Shell's Arctic-bound drillship. They stayed up there 4 days. This was the beginning of the end for Shell's Arctic drilling and the start of a global movement against oil exploration.
As Lucy said at the time: "Seven of us went up the rig but 133,000 came down in solidarity"
A movement against oil was born that is now global, and millions strong.
In the face of enormous public pressure that started with the bold action of those few in Taranaki, Shell retreated from the Arctic. We won.
But there are still more battles to be fought. Right now here in New Zealand Statoil and Chevron are exploring for more oil off the Wairarapa coast.
In March this year, we'll be back in Taranaki to confront the oil industry once again at its annual conference.
If we are to have a future, the oil industry must have no future.
