Sunday was Princess Camp. This puppy’s face? kills me. Dead.
I got very close to the corner of our street and before I noticed that it was completely underwater. Rainpocalypse!
Despite the rain it is beginning to look a lot like springtime.
Sometimes I love the pale pale blue of a bright grey day.
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.
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.
Craig and I went out for lunch. He told me things about this fountain. Things which I forgot immediately. Well done me.
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!)
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).
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.
We patted cats and puppies and each other. It was a glorious way to spend a Sunday. I love these ladies so much.
These puppies! My heart! They are both king charles cocker spaniel cross & just the sweetest things.
Craig had his pirate tattoo retouched. She is no longer blonde & her boots are flawless.
Walking home along the waterfront in the blustery wind the harbour was not an ironing board.
My Devon Anna Smith original arrived!
She is one of my favourite artists.
Crane Brothers may make exquisite suits but their mannequins are slightly terrifying.
Looking for patterns in every day life – sometimes things just fit.
I could not tell if the storm was coming or going. Thankfully it was going.
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.
Feeling a little like a cartoon character these days.
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.
Oh and, best of all, Kate’s husband Jason set up a Photo Booth
It was hella fun.
It was Father’s Day and my sister Charlotte arranged for us all to go to Hashigo Zake for a group beer tasting. It was brilliant.
It was a quiet day at work. The beginning of recess. Such a change.
I absolutely adore this creepy creepy nightdress at Peter Alexander.
In this shot there are two beer glasses, four shot glasses, a wine glass, and a water. Only the wine glass was mine.
Hollow Bones. I liked this sticker.
Uncle Silverback is my brother-in-law!
Jason baked this cake for his wife, Kate. She had a Yayoi Kusama themed polka dot birthday party and it was amazing. As was the cake.
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.
I bought cupcakes for my baby sister’s family birthday celebrations.
Pictured are: vanilla swirl, snickers, and salted caramel cupcakes.
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.
Then on Tuesday I worked late. I was exhausted.
Coley and Laura at the Marriage Equality Rally.
Just a couple of days before the first day of spring it was sunny enough in the morning to necessitate sunglasses. It was glorious.
After a week spread thin I succumbed to some terrible springtime lurgy. I spent Friday afternoon alternating between sleep and lemon and honey drinks.
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.
