An awesome 8 course degustation with matching wine with two of my oldest friends and two more recent ones... HAPPY NEW YEAR!

An afternoon at the beach with my nieces... my tan has commenced!

I'm turning into a barrel with all these big lunches out and constant access to Christmas chocolate...

Wednesday, 28 December 2011

A lovely lunch with my old Flinders Uni colleagues; followed by several hours installing anti-virus software on LB's ancient computer which still uses dial-up... my patience was sorely tested on that one.

Feeling very dissatisfied with my so-called career... time to do some major life reassessment methinks!

Monday, 26 December 2011

There's going to need to be a hell of a lot of exercise tomorrow to work off the last two days worth of food...

Sunday, 25 December 2011

Must remember to keep up with this whilst in Adelaide... meanwhile a lovely Christmas day was had by all... I even got an ocean swim in after lunch!

Polishing silver whilst hungover in 35 degree heat is not ideal...

Friday, 23 December 2011

Just replied to a text from my mother informing her that "sleep is for the weak" as I was chugging down wine in Myer, where I have somehow spent $170 at the MAC counter. I do believe I am in for one of LB's festive bollockings at 8am tomorrow as I stumble off that plane... provided I actually make the flight.

Mostly packed... still sick... not looking forward to working all day tomorrow, going to a work function tomorrow night and then having to wake up at 4am on Saturday... ah well.

A little bit worse for wear after Christmas catch up drinks with the lovely Bridget...

You know you're in the lead-up to Christmas when Love Actually's on TV.

(You also know that you've seen it too many times when you're reciting key lines along with the characters...)

"I am not getting a cold, I am not getting a cold, I am not getting a cold... it's just hayfever"

Seriously. Of all weeks...

Sunday, 18 December 2011

Sunday afternoons in the park with piñatas... fun times.

Saturday, 17 December 2011

Christmas shopping almost done... horrendously organised.

Friday, 16 December 2011

Attempts to go to the gym after work were far too easily thwarted by an invitation to Christmas drinks with work colleagues... in other news, my (fifth row from the front) Duran Duran tickets arrived in the mail!

Thursday, 15 December 2011

This time next week I'll have finished up at one of my jobs for the year and be getting ready to head to Radders for three weeks... how this year has flown!

Today I saw Bill Cunningham New York... what an inspiring, funny, intelligent and just-plain-lovely man he is. His quote: "If you don't take money, they can't tell you what to do. That's the key to the whole thing" has really made me reflect on my own creative works... in particular my writing.

Tuesday, 13 December 2011

At a work-related Christmas party full of thirty-somethings, who do I get stuck listening to for over an hour? A sixty-something PR exec who sees fit to inform me it's a "crime against womanhood" that I'm single. F.M.L (sometimes).

It's only money... she says as she racks up more credit card debt...

Sunday, 11 December 2011

A gorgeous weekend away with the girls incorporating lots of good food, good wine, laughter, singing, sun and swimming. Perfect!

This week's Glee featured the song "Red Solo Cup"... I walk into the beach house we're staying at this weekend and what's the first thing I see in the kitchen?

Thursday, 8 December 2011

"Stop worrying and start living"... a very useful mantra from my friend Elizabeth.

Wednesday, 7 December 2011

Christmas cards posted... THAT'S the achievement for today.

"But I don't think of the future, or the past, I feast on the moment. This is the secret of happiness, but only reached now in middle age."

Head to bed for an early night before a busy day tomorrow? Yes, I think so.

Sunday, 4 December 2011

An afternoon at the design market...

Saturday, 3 December 2011

Under Milk Wood... directed by my friend Chris... performed by my friend Glenda... just lovely.

Friday, 2 December 2011

5 hours sleep + 23 hours work within the space of 48 hours makes for one tired bunny.

Eminem fans are a strange bunch... the ones you think will be awful are lovely and the ones you think will be nice are wankers.
