Don’t blame me, that was a blip in the FABULOUS supply of electricity we have in this building! er-herm (clearing throat), as I was about to say …
Oh frabjous day, calloo, callay!!! I think that’s from Alice in Wonderland, not sure, maybe someone can enlighten me, but it’s how I feel about today – it’s a gorgeous day in Sydneytown, brilliant sunlight, crisp clean Spring air, supposed to hit 24C (and it’s only the 8th day of Spring!) …. forecast to be 27C on Saturday!!!! oooweee, it’s going to be a loooong, HOT, summer!!!
Well, I appear to have successfully fought off any flu bugs in the vicinity, hooray, am feeling FABulous today … hope I can keep it up! My household has been busily organising for a bash we’ve flinging in November … have you ever tried to get five chicks to sit down and work out dates, food, etc? Good grief … much hilarity and not much organising I’m afraid – but at least we’ve got the wording for the invite done :)
As for the heat … well, we’re still in drought, water restrictions are going to be even harsher, we’ll hear the above title on the radio/tv news EVERY DAY for the next 5 months, there will 1/2 hourly updates on the bushfires (because all indications are that this Spring / Summer is going to be a THRILLER [mild sarcasm there] for all the firies, the cicadas are going to explode they’ll be singing so loudly, and the smell of eucalyptus will be everywhere – I LOVE IT!!!!! … I’m a cold weather girl really, grew up in the mountains, but for some reason I am just bubbling over with anticipation for summer this year … maybe God’s trying to subtly tell me something? I’ll have to give Deeleea a bulletin to update if anything terribly exciting happens!
Okay, off to work, must pretend to be busy :)
But before I go …
Shoe of the day: I have revised my feelings re yesterdays pink shoes … I’d forgotten about the ones I’m wearing today, which I dug out last night. They’re two season old, Mollini, gorgeous and SO comfortable … especially when you consider they’ve got 3.5inch heels (that’s 9cm for those of us who are metric) … They’re round toed (of course), strap below the ankle, basically open from the base of the toes up …. guess you’d call them an open court? … I’m a shoe addict but not necessarily with all the correct terminology! … anyhoo … chocolate brown heels, chocolate brown toetip, chocolate brown around edge of toes … with wedge of luscious maroon intersecting the edge and tip … and smack on top of my third toe ‘cleavage’ is a purple piece … sounds kind of an odd combination but it all marries beautifully … these are that pair of shoes that every girl really wants to have … the one that even the guys like! I must give a shoutout to my Kiwi Buddy, who shall be known as The Old Man – he’s a man who unashamedly loves everything about women … and not in a creepy urky way … and he notices things … hair, handbags, clothes … and shoes! He’s definitely the best man for your ego I’ve ever known .. so here’s to you Old Man, love ya babe!!!!
