Last Weekend

Ten's Christmas present from work (aside from a very awesome Hamper) was a weekend away at Smith's Lake with the Boss and his wife and a couple of their friends. Thought I would share a few shots on here, as well as a picture of the outside of my new shop.

*dances* can't WAIT to move in. The website said they hoped to have some of us in there before Christmas, but Marcus is on well deserved holiday and I'm not sure if they'll be able to get all the legalities organised in time. Whatever happens, my boxes are all packed and I am ready and raring to go. Spending this afternoon searching the interwebs for design inspiration.

This is (I think) a rainbow Lorikeet... but I could be wrong. Whatever he was, he was extreemly friendly, even let me pat him very gently with one finger.

Found this shop on the high street at Forster. Love the hours. Could this work for the Hunter St. Mall or could one only get away with such things in a holiday town?

Ten on the beach at Seal Rocks.

Very interesting rock formations. I spent about twenty minutes clambering around on the rocks taking pictures of rockpools, but in my woozy state I had my finger over the viewfinder (really easy to do with my phone) half the time, then I slipped on a rock and scraped my hand, squished my finger, so then I grew a brain and sat in the sun for a while :P

Note: was woozy because I was drinking wine with dinner like the cool kids and then had to take phenergan, was also coming down with something. But as always it was totally worth it. Next time, however, I'm going to sneak vodka in a hip flask so that I can drink without turning into the itchbot.

I love the pictures and it seems that vodka is the way to go for you.

I know here everyone drinks vodka with cranberry juice.

Love the shop.

Mmmm vodka with cranberry juice is tasty, but first pick has to be vodka lime and soda, so tasty ;)


Emerald Arts said...

The robots are ready? Omg YAY! I totally can't wait, I suck at waiting, hoping against hope that I get to move in asap but haven't heard anything back yet from the people in the know.

You do Flossy? No wait... of course you do haha sorry, I'm useless on Mondays. I'm beside myself, and sick of waiting for them to finish the paperwork and let me get started.
