I have had a really good week. I haven’t done anything exciting, or interesting, in fact I have been home and it’s just been lovely. Lots of sunshine. Lots of time offline. Lots of time doing stuff with the kids and lots of time outside. The weather has a lot to do with it I think – the shift in seasons is well and truly happening. It’s a magical thing to watch unfold isn’t it? I never take it for granted and relish every moment.
Some of my bulbs have been coming up but have looked like they are starting to bud up but are at a stumpy height, if you know what I mean? I mentioned it to my gardening friend who told me they need water, so I’ve hopped to it and I think they look taller already – it’s very handy having friends in the know when it comes to matters such as these.
I like this very much. I think perhaps we could all use one of these above our bathroom sinks don’t you think?
Flying through The Rosie Project – almost knocked it off on the trip up and back from Sydney last Sunday. What a fabulous character the lead male is…the book as had me laughing out loud and it’s pretty rare for that to happen to me. You should read it, you really should!
We’re hosting a big Fathers Day lunch here tomorrow with all the trimmings: pork spit, champagne, table out under the spring blossom and a few fabulous Dads to celebrate with. I have my Mum and S-Dad and sister and husband down for a night or so too…THIS is one of my favourite things about moving down here – having people to come and stay and soak up the fresh country air. I also managed to get a few bottles of Pol Roger for just $50! The prices in there were crackers…hop to it this weekend if you can.
Getting through season 1 of Game of Thrones. It’s good isn’t it? I’m late to the party, but ever so glad to have arrived.
I’ve been getting sad seeing everyone get their IKEA cattle dogs in the mail. I don’t get them here (BOO HOO) and I see they come with sticky notes! I am on the look out for a new dining chair (the replica Eames ones we got on the cheap when we moved here are pretty shithouse. The colour has faded (gone yellow) the screws pop out and they are noisy.) I quite like the look of these. Except that every bastard in the world will have them too right?
Have you had a good week too?
So what are you doing for Fathers Day this year?
What presents do you give? A preschool special or something actually special?
Seen any hot dining chairs that I need to look at?
Have a GREAT weekend you guys! May it contain sunshine, sleep, champagne and good food x
