Sisterly reunion

I made it to Melbourne! After a rather dramatic couple of days (and blog posts) it’s nice to be home. If there’s one thing I’ve learnt though it’s that a break up does wonders for the old blog traffic; there’s been a serious spike in numbers, thanks for stopping by!

I landed at 5:30am this morning and after a delicious nap at Mum’s airport hotel room, we headed out to meet my sister for breakfast at St Ali in South Melbourne. My sister is three years older than me, but with her in heels, both of us in dark sunglasses, a similar pose and an Instagram filter, don’t we look like twins?

After coffees and three delightful variations on eggs (and maybe a cookie for breakfast dessert) we jumped in the car to drive 2 hours to Mum’s house.

It’s hard to do anything but relax at Mum’s house. After a while of lazing about and playing around on Tinder (hilarious!) Sarah and I got to work gathering produce for dinner. First we had to get past Benny, who takes the task of guarding the veggie patch pretty darn seriously.

We ended up having ravioli with zucchini, cherry tomatoes and basil (all from the garden) pesto, asparagus and goats cheese. Delicious.

And this is just a pretty picture of flowers Mum picked up to make red, white and blue floral arrangements for her 30 Years In Australia party on Sunday. So patriotic.

Right now I’m tucked up on the couch with a cup of tea and a piece of hedgehog slice watching ABC2 with my sister. Bliss.

How’s Thursday treating you?

      Thanks India! Trust me it wasn’t like this the first week… I was embarrassingly ‘woe is me’, but that’s all over thank goodness. Happy belated 21st birthday! You looked simply stunning in that red dress xx
