Taking a breather after my 14 hour baking stint over 2 days.
We are also in the midst of preparing for Cyclone Cook which is believed to be one of the strongest cyclones New Zealand has encountered since the late 80’s. The kids school was closed again due to predicted worsening road conditions and most work places send their staff home early. Frantic queues are forming for public transport and already flooded areas are building sandbag barriers. I bought a few dry food products as well as water containers, I would rather be safe and prepared than regret not doing anything.
Indulging in crispy French toast drizzled in sweet maple syrup, frothy cappuccino and blogging watching the weather unfold.
