Hello everyone. Hope you've all enjoyed your weekends. And that the weather over at your neck of woods is better than what we're having here at the moment.
Here's a funny photo of the Chubster, he thinks his Dad's back makes a really good resting place. It even comes with a built in blanket. Can't beat that!
And here's MrBB putting the Chubster to work. He is always keen to give his Dad a good back massage. As long as there is no jumping involved.
Even the cats are bored out of their minds being trapped indoors with this rain.
I took these pics at last weekend's agricultural show. I didn't even know there was such a thing as a saucer decorating competition. The top pic won 1st and the bottom pic won second prize in that comp. Can you believe the level of patience involved in putting these together?
These were in the rose competition. I wish I had thought to look at their names but my kids were going wild with boredom in the background so I had to quickly usher them out of the hall.
Same for this flower. Anyone know what its name is and if it's easy to grow. I want to plant it in my garden. I want it bad!
These were the subjects of my latest DYI project. I bought these matching side table, mirror and bedhead a while back from Evil Bay for about $40. I had been meaning to paint them a different colour but did not have the time so they sat in my garage for yonks.
Then on Sunday, I finally got my act together and got a few cans of Rust-Oleum in navy blue (took me 3 cans! I found the whole "4.5 square metres coverage" per can a bit of a crock to be honest!). Now I just need to clean the mirror and move them into my guest bedroom.
My Mum made me another pudim flan. One of my little nightly vices at the moment is having a big slice of this with a nice glass of white wine after the kids have gone to bed.
A $6 bunch of flowers goes a long way in smaller vases.
Christian Louboutin shoes, Josh Goot dress, Hermes and Balenciaga bracelets, Yves Saint Laurent ring, Ralph Lauren cardigan
I wore this on Saturday. I'm thinking it won't be long before I have to put my summer dresses away once the cold decides to stay for good. The good thing is that espandrilles seem to be back 'in'.
I actually bought these espadrille wedges almost 2.5 years ago from The Outnet. The thing is, I am not usually a fan of wedges but gladly made an exception for these. I won't lie, the only reason I bought them was because they were Christian Louboutin wedges, and they also happened to only cost £88. But now I'm glad I was fickle because they have really grown on me, they're so darn comfortable and the lilac/beige colour combination goes with a tonne of things in my wardrobe.
And following up from my last post. I actually ended up handing is my notice to resign last Friday. My boss wasn't very happy but he was very understanding and both him and our managing director were really good about it. So good in fact that they have actually asked me if I would consider doing some consultancy work for them because they think they have at least 2 days worth of work for me which I can do from home. So all in all, I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I am feeling a lot more relaxed at the moment. I also wanted to thank everyone for the words of encouragement I was given here and via email. Reading all your posts and emails made me feel like it was all going to turn out a OK!
Enjoy the start of a new week everyone.xx
