Two celebrations down and two more to go.
Sydney has decided to forget about Autumn and Winter and go straight to Spring.
After a week of very chilly temps we're currently having days of 26 degrees! Crazy, but I'm not complaining, although I did have to dig out some warm weather clothes that I'd packed away for the year.
Dress that was too warm:
DVF dress, Wolford opaques, Jenny Kee scarf. I was far too warm in the tights.
Slightly more suitable outfit of Equipment shirt, red jeans, Jenny Kee scarf and Ferragamo shoes.
Tonight I'm going to crack and get the summer skirts back out as the weather is looking warm for the next week or so.
In the nearish future, we are going to be moving out of our house and having the whole back part of it knocked down and re-built. This is our lovely current kitchen, which will go:
I actually love our kitchen aesthetically, but in terms of practicality, it's a nightmare: too dark, no storage, no dishwasher, lots of mould and crumbling walls, slug infestations if it rains.... you get the picture. It has character, but it's time to move on. We'll be keeping some of the furniture to re-use in the new kitchen. The door at the end opens up into the one and only very small and equally un-renovated bathroom. That will be going too, to be replaced by two new, shiny bathrooms moved into the main part of the house.
Anyway, I'm sure I'll be boring you with far more renovation stuff in the near future (unless the builders' quotes are too high and we scrap the whole idea).
For some light relief at the weekend I went into a shop! Pretty rare occurrence for me these days, but I wanted to buy my mother an extra birthday gift, and got distracted by this skirt in Max Mara. I didn't buy it, but I did quite like it. Thoughts?
Finally, here's a picture of my wonderful mother opening her presents with the children (+ friend).
She is such an amazing woman!
How was your weekend?
