This past weekend Australia had a long weekend due to the Queen's birthday. I'm no Monarchist, but this time of year I appreciate the old girl for having a birthday that we can celebrate.
It is ironic, though, that we don't get a public holiday in the UK.....
Our weekend was spent socialising and eating (what's new?)
On Saturday, we took 6 teenagers to the Aquatic Centre for M's 13th birthday party. I was dreading having to spend 4 hours in a hot, sweaty and noisy environment, but in fact it was almost empty and not too noisy at all.
I managed to read a lot of a book, and the time passed quickly.
M and her friends had a great time.
Outfits from last week. It's been chilly and wet, so trousers are in order:
Grey Country Road sweater, black Acne jeans, Acne boots, red J Crew scarf. Black Country Road sweater, grey Isabel Marant cords, black Acne boots and Andeol scarf. Same sweater, green Zara jeans, Acne boots and Jenny Kee scarf. hmm. there's a bit of a theme going on here...
And a couple of skirt outfits:
APC stripey sweater, new black velvet skirt. Black Country Road dress with J Crew herringbone sweater and green J Crew scarf.
In other news, M can now borrow my jeans:
They're a bit too long, and are a much looser fit on her, but it's great to see her stealing my clothes!
Apart from M's birthday do, we went out for big family Malaysian lunch at Pappa Rich.
I had Rendang and Sambal prawns with Biryani rice. V delicious indeed! I'm on a bit of an obsessive Malaysian food kick at the moment. I had laksa for lunch yesterday and the day before. Something about the combination of chillis, coconut milk and fermented fish paste just hits the mark in winter.
What's your food obsession right now?
M wasting money at an evil games centre - I despise these places!
