Road trippin'

Last weekend Mum, Chris and I drove 6 hours to Bellingen for my Aunt Gill's 60th birthday party.

We stayed in a pretty rad house with some other people. Very lovely ones. A kookabura visited on Saturday morning - isn't he a super cute guy! He stole Chris' ham and cheese croissant the next day.

We walked across the river to a Growers Market on Sunday. Lots weird things and hippies there, but the weather and the autumn colours were goooorgeous.

Here's a hot tip: If you are ever in Bellingen you MUST visit the Hearthfire Bakery. Seriously yummmmm.

On another note, please forgive my sporadic posting. Should be back to normal in a few weeks!

Again, with the freesias.

Sorry, people. There has been A LOT LOT LOT going on, and I haven't really been taking many pictures. I only barely remember to take my head with me when I leave the house, let alone my camera.

This little photo is from last week... I had some freesias left over from Kylie's bouquets, so Chrissy grabbed three stems and plonked them in a jar to put next to the bed for me one night when I was feeling a bit dodgy. They looked so so pretty. I'm all for simplicity lately.

Bondi. *Sigh.*

Well, Saturday was pretty much awesome. We went to Paul and Naoko's place for a BBQ on the balcomoose. I ate soysages. Yes soysages. Chrissy, and the others, surfed. I walked along the promenade with Yvonne and Lockie. We cuddled Gael and Candice's bubba, Lea. The sun shone. It set.

I lived in Bondi for 3 marvellous years, but had forgotten that the cool factor of Bondi locals is off the richter. It is painful to look at.

Don't forget to call your Mum

on Sunday. It's Mother's Day.

It would also be nice if you bought her some flowers, maybe. Skip the ol' rose and lily combo and go for a cute little bunch of tulips and sweet peas instead. Or some garden roses. You know, simple.

Also spare a thought for all the lovely florists on days like these - the markets were an absolute ZOO this morning.

The Wedding.


No sillies, not Kate and Wills' wedding! I'm talking about Kylie and Phil's

It was a lovely, lovely day, and everything went off without a hitch. The bride looked beautiful of course, and the groom and his boys (Chrissy was one!) were very handsome in their suits.


The flowers looked excellent, if I do say so myself. Kyles had white roses, mini roses and freesia (remember?), and strawberry and geranium foliage. Her girls had the same but smaller, and with some pale pink roses. Purdy. I only managed to snap a couple of dodgy pics before I ran out the door.

The reception was super fun, my vegetarian meals were really tasty (I know, right?!) and I woke up with a sore little head on Sunday.

Congrats to Kylie and Phil xxx
