Rugby 7's

Friday and Saturday of last week I was at the Goldy for the Rugby 7's. Jeremys family shouted us to the games.It is so not my thing, but I had the best time ever. Next year I am wearing a costume and really getting into the spirit of it all. Jeremy's parents live in Fiji so they were going for Fiji and my Grandad is from Wales and loves his Rugby so I went for Wales. At the end of the day Fiji won the whole tournament and the atmosphere was amazing as there was so many Fijians at the game. I was constantly getting goosebumps from the atmosphere around me. Does anyone else get goosebumps from strange things? I also get them when hearing someone sing a beautiful song or a brilliant bit in a movie and occasionally I get them during a really good advert. Yeah OK I am a weirdo hehehe. Have a good end of the week XXX

My Date With Harry X

Sorry for my lack of posting but I have been extremely busy and will post about it all very shortly. On Wednesday Hubby and I flew to Sydney for the day for the Harry Potter Exhibition. I was pretty chuffed as I was chosen from the crowd to have the sorting hat placed above my head and I got placed into Hufflepuff house. The Exhibition was interesting but I expected so much more from it and not being able to take photos was a real bummer. It was so cute to see the costumes from the "Philosopher's Stone" and seeing how small they all were. Sorry no other photos from the day to show you though cause it was bucketing down.

Quiet Weekends

Here are some of the beautiful post cards I have received this week. Thanks to my lovely blog friends who have helped my postcard collection expand very quickly.

Today has been so hot we are supposed to be gardening before Jeremy's parents arrive later in the week. But I have a feeling we are not going to get anything finished before they get here. Our yard is a disgrace and his parent are such avid gardeners that I get embarrassed when ever they come to stay. Don't worry I am wearing something I am not nude in this photo hehehe :)

This is some awesome retro material that I bought at my local OP shop. I am hoping to make a long wrap skirt out of the material. Fingers crossed that it works out.

I also got these brand new shoes while OP shopping I love them. I love having itsy bitsy baby feet as I can always find new shoes at OP shops cause nobody else can fit into them.

Here is a photo of all our Christmas presents ready to go under our Christmas tree. I cant believe we have bought every ones presents apart from each others.

I got this bag free when I bought my Natio cleanser and toner etc I love getting freebies that you will actually use. I think this bag is awesome so bright and fun and very me.

Mindy Cat is not coping with the heat at all, poor baby. It looks like he is a robot cat in this photo with that crazy looking eye.

10 Things to do this week
1/ Organise a Christmas BBQ with all our friends
2/ Write out all my Christmas cards and post on December the 1st
3/ Post all my mixed Cd's, sorry guys I have been busy
4/ Start running again
5/ Buy a new dress for Christmas Parties
6/ Cook something I have never made before
7/ Make homemade Icy Poles
8/ Buy a new hat
9/ Start making wrap skirt from retro material.
10/ Finish garden before Jeremy's parents arrive.

I am a list girl I have lists everywhere nothing makes me feel better than crossing things of the list. By the way I have made to many Mixed Cd's so I have a spare one so if you want it just mention it in the comment and leave your email address so I can get in contact with you. First person to mention it will receive it.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend XXX

Reading, Watching, Listening and Making

Reading Jane Eyre, I love reading the classics they always entertain.

Watching Pan Am and I am absolutely loving it especially the fashion and I am so happy to see Margot Robbie doing so well in the US.

Listening to Kimbra's Vows. This is my favourite CD for this year it is amazing!!!

Making Paper Bunting I got the paper templates from
Daily Suze so easy and so much fun. Each time Hubby goes in the spare room he says this belongs in a swimming carnival not a bedroom hehehe.

Hope everyone has had a good week, only 2 more sleeps to the weekend bring it on!!!!

In Australia at the moment Coke bottles have peoples names written on them. Having a unusual name I never ever get to find anything with my name on it so we decided to make our own. I know so terribly daggy but I'm so happy to have my own handmade Coke bottle.
