Well, well, well. I seems such a long time since I’ve blogged consistently. To think I managed to blog more often when lived in a remote mining town AND when I was on the road contending with abysmal wifi is somewhat shameful. Life hey? It’s either busier or I don’t have a handle on time management. A bit of both probably.
So what’s been happening? Well a couple of weekends ago I flew over to Perth to celebrate the engagement of these two:
Bec and Scottie, whom you may remember from Rome or from when we lived together in an adorable cottage with a white picket fence. Bec’s parents hosted the party at their house and absolutely no effort was spared in putting together this spectacular evening. Bec’s mum painstakingly put together all of the decorations; everything from the floral wreaths to the lighting configurations to the forest of white trees lining the pool. It looked wonderful.
It was a major Kalgoorlie catch up and so good to see everyone and get up to speed on two years of gossip.
As per usual we burnt up the dance floor into the miniscule hours and spent Sunday a little worse for wear. Totally worth it!
It’s amazing to think back to how young we were when we all met in Kalgoorlie in our first graduate journo jobs, figuring out life and love in the dusty Goldfields. Not these guys are gettin’ hitched!
I also saw my old community theatre friends and had an amazing evening with them over cheese platters, pizza and sparkling wine. Wish I’d remembered to bring my proper camera out!
What else? It’s getting very chilly here in Melbourne which I’m loving. I’ve been working a lot which I’m not loving. I have a few mini breaks coming up which will be wonderful. I’ve been binging hard on Orange is the New Black (so weird to think we watched the last season in London!) and Master of None, are you watching? And eating a lot of soup!
OH! And this biggest update is that I am now blonde.
What’s news with you?
Good to see you back. I’m on the blog struggle train too. That party looked gorgeous, I can’t believe her mum did it all. We haven’t started this season of OITNB yet, still working through house of cards. This season of master of none is different but good I thought.
Oh gosh I’m tragically behind on House of Cards… not sure I’ll ever catch up! Haven’t heard many positive things about this season, are you enjoying it?
