Happiness is.. an unexpected win!..

Hey readers! Sorry I didn't reply earlier I've been busy having too much fun to slow down! and Gosh, I've got so much to tell you!!

Friday was such an awesome day - Spent the day with bestie Sam (www.thatswhatsam-said.blogpsot.com) getting stuff for mummy's day and all round just yayying at all the cool stuff we found at the shops..found a navy blue trench I'm totally in love with at Forever New (OF course it's from FN!) AND discovered they have not only my white patterned tights which I wore to death last winter ( when does a shop ever restock an item the next year? - MAJOR kudos ) but now they have all these other cute patterns too, pretty bows and flowers..

In the afternoon Sam and I went exploring and discovered the bush nearby is actually huge! and there are trees which look perfect for climbing, and secret tunnels! As a kid I was always up a tree reading, did any of you guys climb trees as kids? Cheers to my little sis for the lend of grey cardi :)

Ooh ooh and - I found earmuffs!! Honestly, I have been trying to track down earmuffs since I was in the cloudy heavens of Genting ( Highlands near Kuala Lumpur) last year and missed out on getting a super cute pair of strawberry ones.. Thank you Equip, my year long search is over :D

One thing I should say about Perth - and I'm sure Toots from http://tootsjoy.blogspot.com and Kim from http://fashionnibble.blogspot.com/ - Perth loves the fact that it's a place with such great weather so much so that when we do have crap weather, Perth people live in denial and dress like it's still summer, and we all just freeze our little butts off! Try getting a Perth girl out of short shorts - we'll just throw on a big hoodie and keep our shorts on .. so finding earmuffs, even though Perth is quite windy - is a huge win =D

meeting with my supervisor went awesome ! Always dread my meetings because I'm reallllly not so good on the attention being on me stuff.. I'll let you know how this works out for me going down the aisle - hilarious!
Anyway, we did the normal meeting stuff..and THEN I asked her when she wanted my lit review final copy in.. and she just shrugs and says in a sentence that seemed in my mind to go forever.. " well, as your supervisor, as far as I'm concerned, you've met the only unit outline requirement which mentions the lit review and that's handing in a draft.. So I don't see any reason why you shouldn't just get it to me.. January sometime?"

Cue the fireworks, cos this lit review, was kicking my ass. big time.

And more fireworks, was going through my stuff and found my old Enid Blyton books! Did you guys read Enid Blyton as a kid?? What was your favourite book? what do you remember? I'll always remember the faraway tree, a magic tree which would have a new land at the top every time, and the magic wishing chair! I loved her books so much as a littley, mum would always find me hidden away somewhere, in a tree or under a cubby made of sheets, off in my own little world.. Very excited about rediscovering them = )

Hope that you're enjoying days like this, wherever you are in the world :)

Sunday nights are made for yummy dinners and great docos

Hey awesome readers, hope you've all had a wonderful weekend and all made the most out of the spectacular sunny days if you're in Perth right now.. I especially enjoyed mine because now I can seeeee! cheers for that Alex Perry ;) champion !

I was saying just a few posts ago to one of my adorablllleee followers Kim - it's so strange how Perth seems to know it's a weekend, and brings out the sunshine especially. My mum would delight in these "perfect washing days".. so any wonder what I did today?

sad to think some of these bright clothes will soon be neatly folded away until next spring..

Went on an adventure/road trip last night with our best neighbours ever to Spud Shed... or rather spudshed as it says on the sign ( fiancée delights in calling it spudshed, like spudged). Yep, this is what my saturday night excitement has now turned into.. someone pass me my knitting needles and my crossword puzzle please :D

To anyone else anywhere else in the world, this wouldn't be so exciting, but Spudshed is the only store I know of in Perth ( barring Mt. Lawley Chemist) which is open 24 hours a day. These places just don't exist in Perth..actually while you're grabbing my crossword, mind getting one for Perth too.. oh never mind, she's sleeping :D no, I really do love the littleness of Perth. ;)

After having a delicious spud shed salad and tuscan chicken dinner, fiancee and I attempted to unwind with a bbc doco.. All I can say is .. oh.. my .. god..

I will never complain about how hard it is to decide what to have for dinner again..

Or about how long it takes to by public transport to get to Uni..

And I will NEVER ever complain about the waves washing away the walls of my sandcastles..

All my love guys!!


Oh and just quickly, I'm slightly obsessed with what Kate Middleton wore to the wedding dinner.. even more so than her wedding dress.. gorgeous much??? Jeez..
