Sunday: Princess Camp with Sasha
Sunday
Sunday was Princess Camp. This puppy’s face? kills me. Dead.

Monday: rainpocalypse
Monday
I got very close to the corner of our street and before I noticed that it was completely underwater. Rainpocalypse!

Tuesday: spring time
Tuesday
Despite the rain it is beginning to look a lot like springtime.

Wednesday: grey day.
Wednesday
Sometimes I love the pale pale blue of a bright grey day.

Thursday: out for drinks with Hugh
Thursday
I went for a drink with a friend. The bar we chose gave us the option of a draught, a piano man, and ‘ladies night’. Not the best bar choice.

Friday: it was on sale! I could not resist creepy Dorothy
Friday
I’ve taken photos of the creepy Dorothy negligee before but couldn’t afford it. Then it went on sale and I could not resist.

Saturday: fountain by the library
Saturday
Craig and I went out for lunch. He told me things about this fountain. Things which I forgot immediately. Well done me.

Princess Camp!

Rochelle made this AMAZING cake
Rochelle’s glorious cake

This past Sunday I went to Princess Camp. It was pretty much the best thing ever.
There were 10 of us, we descended on Amie’s house and found decorations fit for princesses.

(even Sasha got in on it!)

Sasha wore a bow in her hair! for a bit.

We spent hours watching old recordings of gymnastics, the Spice Girls at the Closing Ceremony, and terrible cheesy dance movies (Step Up 1 and 2 if you MUST know).

Nail painting Laura and Kate

Amie covered her lounge floor in pillows and mattresses. We lounged and painted our nails.

We brought cake and fruit and sweet rolls and cheese and champagne. A lot of champagne.

Max! aka the Snow Leopard

Oh, Sasha

We patted cats and puppies and each other. It was a glorious way to spend a Sunday. I love these ladies so much.

Monday: a very windy day. The sea was not flat.

Walking home along the waterfront in the blustery wind the harbour was not an ironing board.

Crane Brothers may make exquisite suits but their mannequins are slightly terrifying.

Looking for patterns in every day life – sometimes things just fit.

Friday: was the storm coming or going? Going, thankfully.
Friday
I could not tell if the storm was coming or going. Thankfully it was going.

Saturday: matching lipstick to hair!
Saturday
Matching my hair and my lipstick. I am not sure which came first.
I owned the lipstick first but recently I don’t wear it often. Not until the hair.

Cartoon character?
Feeling a little like a cartoon character these days.

Kusamarama

Kusama decorations

Just last friday the lovely Kate threw a party at the lovely Jo‘s house. Kate loves Yayoi Kusama almost as much (perhaps more!) than I so her polka dot theme? Was the most amazing thing ever.
Jo has kept the polka dots up in her hallway in what I think was a master stroke.

We all went in on helium balloons for Kate

A cat called Sebastian

Fancy bitch Kate with Stacey and Kim

How cute is Laura?

Jason and Kate. Too fucking cute

Oh and, best of all, Kate’s husband Jason set up a Photo Booth

The polka dot matches my hair
For the party I stuck gems all over a black dress and made a giant polka dot headdress.
It was so neon I had to re-up the pink in my hair.

The Wizard of Oz line at Peter Alexander is really quite lovely. I certainly thought so after a few drinks with a former coworker on Monday night.

Thursday: glorious morning - it's almost spring
Thursday
Just a couple of days before the first day of spring it was sunny enough in the morning to necessitate sunglasses. It was glorious.

Friday: ill afternoon
Friday
After a week spread thin I succumbed to some terrible springtime lurgy. I spent Friday afternoon alternating between sleep and lemon and honey drinks.

Saturday: Transylvanian, Columbia, Magenta
Saturday
Naturally I made sure I was well enough to make it to Coley’s Rocky Horror Birthday party.
I went as dark underwear Janet and spent the evening surrounded by babes. It was brilliant.
