Last week was absolutely killer, in the worst possible way. Work was insane, and I had to be up in Sydney twice - hello train-time! And Starbucks!
And again, here...
Which is usually quite fun, but not when I'm so busy I just want to lock myself in the office and take my phone off the hook! Added to that, I have been battling a horrible throat and sinus infection - icky. I think I consumed my body weight in caffeinated beverages to get through the week
Needless to say, by the time Friday evening arrived, all I wanted to do was curl up on the couch in my pj's, watching trashing tv and quietly dying. But V was keen to go out for dinner and a movie, and I buckled in the face of his enthusiasm (and the promise of copious amounts of Maltesers)
We meandered over to one of our favourite Wollongong watering holes, Swell cafe. The proprietor, Mike, roasts his own fair trade coffee beans and makes a mean brew, and has now added Friday-evening antipasto to his repertoire! Highly recommend
We relaxed outside...
And ate lots of yummy antipasto goodies, and drank lemon lime & bitters. A liquor license is in the works, and expected very soon - stay posted!
And then we went and saw Adjustment Bureau, which is based on a Philip K Dick short story (V and I are massive fans of his writing) - it was good, but a little too Hollywood romance for our taste. We had been expecting something much more sci-fi, in line with the original story
This morning, we embraced the cooler weather with several giant coffees and breakfast at lee&me, then wandered around the shops...
Croque monsieur (had fun teaching V and the waitress how to pronounce this)
I snared this dress from a Supre outlet store last week - its miles too big for me, but I love the colour and cut, and for $5, I wasn't complaining!
Belted in, and knotted up, I think it works
The dress is actually a lovely shade of navy blue - completely ruined by the killer combination of my dodgy camera and Blogger...
