My, what a lovely moustache!

As any self-respecting almost-30 year old knows, the only way to celebrate turning the big three oh is by getting a group of amazing friends together at a beautiful winery, slapping fake moustaches on them all, and drinking and eating until you pass out from the pleasure of it all!

The moustache bus!

A tremendously, stupendously huge thank you to everyone who helped to make my birthday one to remember - the weather was perfect, the food and wine were delicious, and the company could not be beat! An especially tremendously, stupendously huge thank you to His Travel Romance, who took me out for a delightful breakfast before the day's festivities, and who not only organised the moustache bus, but helped decorate it, and then drove it, along with 16 of my friends, to the Swan Valley for the day. What a man! xx

Hullabaloo 2011!

Hullabaloo for 2011 has commenced and I am having the most fabulous time catching up with good friends, eating good food, and dancing my nights away. The weather has been amazing (and hot!) and I cannot begin to tell you how great it is to be back in what I now consider to be my home town. Ahh, it's good to be 'home'.

Friday saw us riding a big white bus on a whimsical wine tour of the Swan Valley where we drank wine and ate chocolate to our heart's content...

After which I needed a little nap before heading out to the Perth Dingy Club for more dancing fun.

Last night we headed to the Hula Bula Bar for some pre-dance cocktails however, decided that $20 spent on dinner might be a tad more sensible than $32 spent on a cocktail!

Last night was the Hullabaloo Hop - a frou frou extravaganza for which we spent the entire afternoon and evening preparing a car full of tissue paper pom poms in order to decorate the North Perth Town Hall - more photos to come of that one in the next few days.

New discoveries

I've been searching through new blogs recently to get inspiration for little crafty projects, and have come across two little gems that I am adding to my regular reading list.

Courtesy of Smaggle and her article on jealousy, I discovered yes and yes,  which is a fabulous blog about anything and everything that I could possibly be interested in reading.

And, via some random searching of pictures and ideas on my own, I stumbled across a little bird told me. so, which I have instantly fallen in love with, mostly because I just love kt's style. I'm a little sad that she hasn't updated her blog since January, but fingers crossed she gets back into it soon!

Oh - and I got bored with how my blog was looking, and decided a little change here might be nice too. Just a little.

Still here

It's not that I've decided not to blog. I haven't decided that, since I'm now home, nothing I write will be of relevance to the reason I started this blog in the first place. I was actually thinking that I would like to keep it going, and that it could evolve into an every day life sort of blog. But, I'm finding that my recent days do not provide me with a lot of fodder for writing. It's not that I consider my life to be boring - I'm actually thoroughly enjoying it (apart from the fact that His Travel Romance is currently away) - but, the reason I am enjoying it is exactly the reason why I have no fodder. I have a routine. It focuses on me and what I want to achieve over the next few months, ie - get a smoking hot body and a smoking hot home! As such, my week days generally go a little something like this:

1. Get up, have breakfast, drive HTR to work by 0730.
2. Come home and do a weights routine/go to the gym and do a cardio session.
3. Take Wallace for a walk.

4. Shower, do some general cleaning around the house, ie put dishes away, do the laundry.
5. Do some 'get a smoking hot home' tasks around the house/run errands/do grocery shopping/research our next holiday/whatever other things come up.
6. Go and pick HTR up from work by 1630.
7. Spend time with HTR, have dinner, watch a movie/talk, go to bed.

So - with this pattern occurring nine times out of ten, or five times out of seven if you want to get really technical, it's no wonder I've been a little quiet. But - I did go to Melbourne last weekend to visit Pony and her family, which was a wonderful break from my house of solitude. Pony is the one who has gotten me onto my 'get a smoking hot body' routine so it's great visiting with her as we're both eating the same things and not eating the same things! I was lucky enough to be staying at her place for a gourmet BBQ feast on Saturday night when they had a few friends over and I had a great time chatting and laughing and sipping my treat glass of red wine whilst gnawing on my treat gourmet BBQ meats and devouring my delicious treat potato salad, the recipe for which was graciously provided by my dear friend Yak... It occurs to me that I seem to have a collection of four-legged human friends covered in hair... For dessert, I also made these bad boys: white chocolate ganache sandwiched between two chocolate biscuits, served with whipped cream and berries.

And, if that's not exciting enough, next week I'm off to Perth for Hullabaloo and my 30th birthday!! And I promise - I will come back and tell you all about that :-)
