The highlight of this week has been taking Mat away on a date. I think it definitely ranks up there on the special date-ometer! Feel free to take the whole thing and replicate it. It was a WINNER.
My husband and co-publisher, Mat, isn’t really a giggler but the TV show, 7 Days, definitely gets him going. He loves it, binge watching it on YouTube. For those of you that haven’t seen it, 7 Days is a bit like hanging out in the pub with your funniest and most cynical mates while they rip apart the goings-on of the previous week.
So I booked us a surprise date. On Wednesday lunchtime, we flew down to Wellington, checked into the QT Museum Wellington and walked the five minutes to St James Theatre to be in the audience of the 7 Days Election Special. Back to the hotel straight afterwards for the launch party of the hotel’s very sexy new bar, Hot Sauce, and then ride the lift up to our floor with 7 Days host Jeremy Corbett (pretty exciting to see the whole panel staying in the hotel!).
Chris Lee, the glamorous ‘make shit happen’ lady at the QT Museum Wellington hosted us with consummate grace and went to great lengths to make us feel welcome. Thank you for helping me organise this cool date for Mat!
Next morning we had a cleansing swim, then breakfast at Wellington institution Floriditas, and a walk round Oriental Bay and behind Te Papa. We hopped back on the plane and were back at work just after lunch on Thursday.
