My very beautiful and very talented Auntie Kath made this table runner for me after I admired one she made for my mother last year. Oh how I wish I inherited the brilliant sewing skills of my grandmother!

Beautiful distractions

Even though I have what appears to be a never ending ‘to-do’ list… Uni work, ballet course work, house work, book keeping, business tax. I find my mind wondering more and more to the distant future when I get to wear a gorgeous white dress and say “I do” to my fabulous man!

Needless to say, I have not done much from my ‘to-do’ list. I have a blank essay sitting in front of me as a type, (Roman politics just don’t seem to be my priority today), my house is woefully untidy and my business tax…. well I’ll deal with that later! I find myself gazing at my beautifully distracting ring that always seems to sparkle and catch my eye at the most inconvenient of times. Every time I look at it I get a silly little smile on my face and feel very much at home with the saying “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”

I also have this super handy little notebook from the fabulous stationary store Kikki-K.

I try to tell myself that I can use it later and start planning everything after my urgent jobs are done, but I still reach for it every now and then, just to flick through it and find myself creating imaginary table decorations! Perhaps I should lock it away?

Happily Ever After

I'm finally able to announce to the world that my beautiful boy asked me to marry him while we were on our holiday. He hadn't asked my dad yet, so I had to keep it a secret until we returned to Australia, but now he's asked and everyone gets to know!

Fourth of July ... Best night ever!
