snapshots of the week past...

Its been a very full and satisfying week! Thankyou all so much for your absolutely lovely words and congratulations on my last post - I am absolutely thrilled. It was also fantastic to find out my cholesterol levels and various other things (including that I am quite seriously deficient in Vitamin D - I probably could have guessed at that one though LOL)

I was in Sydney for a seminar yesterday morning - and treated myself to breakfast at ikou, yum!

I took my brother out for lunch at the Snag Stand in the new Westfields food court - loved it! The menu was a bit dizzying, and I cannot wait to go back again

Meet my sister's cat Boo, now living with my parents - isn't he gorgeous? He is absolutely gigantic too. If he had the tufty ears and long fluffy coat, he could be a Maine Coon!

Have you ever seen a cat lie like this? Cracks me up

Clever little me managed to shut my finger in a doorjamb at work last week - still hurts like buggery. If the nail falls off I am going to scream!

I treated myself to a big bunch of flowers yesterday to celebrate my needle-victory - I dithered in the flowershop for a good 15 minutes, tossing up between the peonies and david austen roses, but settled on these gorgeous hydrangeas

The world's best ice lemon tea from lee&me!

Flowers, a Glasshouse scented candle and a glass of Wither Hills savignon blanc - perfection

  1. Happy snaps, love it! (oh, besides the nail - ouch!) I have hydrangeas in my house right now too :)

  2. I love hydrangeas (and a huge CONGRATULATIONS on your needle victory, it was so inspiring to read about!). I hope your weekend continues to be fantastic and as lovely as it looks in these photos! x

  3. So, hi, here's my first comment! :)

    That breakfast looks delish!

    When I saw the hydrangeas, all I could think of was Madonna - "I absolutely loathe hydrangeas. He obviously doesn't know that."

    Strange lady... They're gorgeous! :)

  4. Your cat pics always bring a smile to my face! :)

  5. I have been inspired by you to get some pretty candles. currently lusting after the Peter Alexander ones.
