April’s been tough, but in so many little yet not-so-little ways, lovely. Here’re some more of those lovely moments –
Sara made me a necklace! It’s gold chain intertwined with navy, red, turquoise and white string. Isn’t it gorgeous?
During a particularly stressful afternoon, I treated our team to the delectable muffins at The Muffinry (I’m not a muffin person myself, so I got their delish quiche instead).
Navy, white lace and silver for Jolyn and Samuel’s wedding.
It was in a quaint little cottage in Dempsey, part of the John Erdos gallery. The space was filled with love, pretty salmon-pink lanterns, and singing (it was a Christian ceremony).
Baby’s breath in gorgeous vintage jars, overlooking Haji Lane.
Shawna and I hit the shops one Sunday when we were both husband-less – we both came away with happy purchases :-)
We’ve been on a bit of a flower bender since moving in – it’s a nice little treat and pick-me-up at the end of a long day to see these beauties.
M came back from Hong Kong with a lovely surprise :-)
Getting the house ready for dear friends to arrive for a house-warming party. Zal brought his amazing chicken wings, we ordered pizza and made salad, Jem of course felt the food wasn’t sufficient and bought duck rice from downstairs (which turned out to be a blessing in disguise as the pizzas were pathetic), and Dot provided us with Da Paolo tiramisu and homemade choc chip cookies. We laughed and talked and played with the kids and bitched about others and talked about everything and nothing – it was an amazing night :-)
The ever-thoughtful Dot presented us with homemade choc chip cookies, meat spice-rub, and vanilla sugar as a house-warming present. Bless her. :-)
Shot stolen from a camera screen – hence the horrid colours.
Post-party, awake and a little depressed at the house being so empty suddenly, I cleaned up the place and arranged / cut some more flowers.
It’s moments like these that make it all worthwhile, I think. :-)
