9 year anniversary

Yesterday 27th July, was our wedding anniversary - 9 years. After work we had a friend babysit for us and we walked just around the corner to a lovely restaurant called 'Nextdoor'.

It was a great opportunity to wear my new dress I bought from Gorman in the sales. It is a summer dress but with a bit of black accessorising it didn't look too bad.

These clogs have given me blisters every time I have worn them but this time I had a good, thick pair of tights.

This lovely bag from Mimco was a birthday present from my parents. Now when I looked at my present I thought to myself, when do I go out at night to warrant such a lovely bag? But HEY! I used it within a month!

And here is my lovely husband who has put up with me for 14 years, 9 of them officially by law. A wonderful man who makes me laugh, have fun and good conversation, adventures and hope in my life. I love you x

Naaahh it didn't last

I couldn't deal with more hair on one side of my head than the other. Asymmetry just isn't something I am comfortable with at the moment.

Back from holiday

I went on holiday to Queensland to visit my parents and brother (who was also visiting from Dubai) last week. The weather was a glorious 21 degrees and sunny everyday.

On our return to Melbourne it was raining and 10 degrees and has not changed all week. I wouldn't say it was a relaxing holiday, especially with a 2 and a half year old but Mr Ed and I managed to get away twice for a coffee and see friends.

Oh and this lovely little cup is just so cute with its little umbrella lid and tea infuser. Many cups of liquorice tea have been consumed today.

A slight change in hair style, it is going to take a while to grow out my fringe but I need a change. I seem to attempt a change in hair styles every couple of years and then revert back to my old trusty fringe and bob. We'll see how long it lasts.

It was my Birthday on Saturday

It started out a little early on Friday night when I met with a friend after work who was visiting from Perth - a lovely dinner at Cumulus Inc and a few glasses of wine.

In the morning we went to Heidi, a gallery and house in Heidelberg (15 min drive from Melbourne). The house and the gallery have a long documented history in Australian literature and art, at first as a home to John and Sunday Reed in the 30's and then later commissioning a gallery on the property in the 60's.

Showing a few exhibitions that we didn't know much about until we got there, Little Miss A showed an unexpected interest in the paintings and liked picking out the images she recognised.

We walked around the grounds, the kitchen gardens and sculpture garden and then had lunch in the cafe (sadly underwhelming). But the sun was out and the air was crisp and I spent the day with my little family.

I also got a lovely new edition to my jewellery collection, a little silver fox ring by Victoria Mason from Mr Ed, so lovely.

And Mr Ed also made me a delicious beetroot chocolate cake - I'm still enjoying it.

I'm a lucky girl.
