We’re in Canberra this weekend for Daisy’s birthday. We had originally planned a camping weekend (as per the Birthday girls request) but the rain event that has hit NSW saw us look for other options. Birthday girl’s back up was the Nation’s Capital…Questacon and a request to go to both Parliament Houses. It’s wet and dreary out now and I’m suffering from a little Museum fatigue (we did Questacon & the War Memorial this morning) but we are having a great time and I’m currently sitting on a comfy bed with Calamity Jane keeping me company. Hope the rain gets to all those that need it…it’s certainly very dry-looking down here.
It’s quite dangerous opening your emails this time of year don’t you think? Every one seems to show new pretty things and even though it’s not cool at all, the thought of thick woollen jumpers and boots are occupying my mind. Saw these bad boys this week from Seed and they have gone straight to my wish list when I next get paid. I mean REALLY. They are practically made for me in mind. You can check them out here.
You guys, I am STILL doing my sticker chart. I’m up to week 6 next week. That means I have been exercising 4 times a week for 5 weeks. I’m going to keep at it, see if I can not ‘break the chain’. I started a weekly group personal training/boot camp this week with a whole lot of ladies from town and it was great fun. Sure I have had trouble sitting down on the toilet since, but it’s been great fun. I wrote this morning on Facebook how irritating it is that all those smug fuckers who are up at it early in the morning exercising are onto something…it really does make you feel better (mentality at least). Bastards.
I read this article this week on Mrs Woog’s Facebook page. I liked it. It’s no bullshit, straight forward, sensible advice. I have started rolling 3 nights off alcohol during the week and can say it’s been an easy way to feel better about yourself and your outlook. Double bastards.
We have finally got planning for our trip away. We booked some internal flights in Europe this week as well as our apartment in London through Airbnb. It’s amazing how a simple internet booking can make the whole seem feel real. I’m getting so excited….EUROPE. PASSPORT. Sheesh.
Speaking of sheesh, check out this new winter range from Aura Home that hit my email this week. How can one be expected to do anything but buy this stuff? It’s difficult to do much else.
Rob and I watched episode 9, season 3 of Game of Thrones yesterday. We started watching it late Thursday night but the Gods conspired against us with our internet packing it in at the 40 minute mark. We’ve caught up. I can’t. I mean, I’ve…I just…it’s just so….anyone that has seen it will understand. DEAR LORD. One more episode to go and then we will be up to date. Have you seen the trailer for the next season yet? I refuse to watch it…not yet anyway.
Anyone going to play along with #babymacreciperoulette this weekend? I made some vego pasta during the week and it was pretty bloody tasty. Such a great way to use the cookbooks sitting on your shelf…have a crack! Go on!
Is it raining where you are this weekend?
Got some essential London tips for us for 4 days in mid June?
Did you cope after THAT episode of Game of Thrones (don’t read the comments for fear of spoiler alert which I apologise for but I NEED to talk about it). I do.
Happy weekend friends x
