Still unmotivated to take photos, so here’s the tissue box that sits on the coffee table that I’ve been looking at all day as I sit on the couch like a giant sloth and wait.
I wasn’t sure about today’s theme, so here are some water droplets on the shower screen.
I’ve decided to do black this month. I think it will be quite challenging, but after a shaky day today, I feel like it’s definitely reflective of me at the moment.
This is a ‘Grid It’ organiser by Coccoon that my husband got for me because he’s sick of me constantly digging around (and losing) things in my cavernous black hole of a bag.
Now that we’ve bought a house, we can do away with all the old property brochures, section 32s, post it notes with our impressions of places, and generally unnecessary junk that we’ve accumulated over the last few months. It feels good to not need it anymore. Into the recycling bin it goes!
These are not the curtains that I would have chosen for myself, but being in a rental doesn’t really give us a lot of choice. I do like how they look in the afternoon light though.
A very rainy start to the long weekend. I couldn’t believe how heavy the rain was, but we did get to see a nice double rainbow.
An old fence on my walk to the post office today. I really wish I could pick up parcels after work instead of going on the weekend. Auspost has very inconvenient opening hours!
There’s a couple of boxes the husband has stacked precariously in the living room. It kind of looks a bit like a fox to me, but I’m sure I’m the only one who sees that. I pointed it out to the husband, but he just thought I was crazy.
I’m still working on that DIY lantern project. I really like the pattern on these ones.
Another filler today, taken at Federation Square a few weeks ago.
Another filler today. It’s been a busy day. My cousin recently made a huge change in her career. I was helping her out today on her new venture, and it was a hard day because it wasn’t as successful as she anticipated. It’s hard to see her so down when she’s normally so bubbly, but it’s new and different. Hopefully she’ll learn from this experience and next time it’ll be amazing. I’m very proud of her for following her dreams despite not knowing where she’s going to end up.
Oh yeah, happy Australia Day!
Lines on the road… It’s not very straight!
I came home today and there was a new iMac sitting in my living room. Unfortunately it wasn’t for me. It was my parent’s new toy that the husband was setting up for them. Sadface. Oh well, here’s a weird shot of the box it came in sitting on our dusty floor.
We went to the moonlight cinema tonight to see Argo. While we were waiting we had a lovely picnic on our awesome green picnic blanket. It was a really nice night and the place was packed. The movie was interesting, but it was ruined by the group sitting near us who didn’t know how to stop talking when the movie started. It wasn’t helped that the audio wasn’t loud enough. I still think it’s a nice night out and I love when the bats fly over the gardens.
I went into the city today to do some last minute Christmas shopping and it was busy! There were plenty of Christmassy things around, but I still love taking some detours to look at the graffiti filled laneways. They don’t smell very good, but have some amazing colourful art.
I finally got around to wrapping my KK for work. It’s a weird shape so I don’t think I did a very good job, but I hope my person appreciates it. I made a much crappier version of a hot chocolate mix found here on Hey Georgeous The Blog complete with the tiniest bottle of Kahlua. It was so small that I didn’t even get checked for ID when buying it, and with the curse of baby face I always get checked. I really love her DIYs and her photography. It’s so lovely.
The fringe on one of my (many) favourite scarves.
The husband got some cheap but very sturdy golf umbrellas. I really like this black and white one.
The husband got me a gift for our anniversary that finally arrived. It was wrapped up in a Japanese newspaper, which actually looked quite pretty and dodgy at the same time. It was a takoyaki maker, which I had been wanting to get for a long long time but couldn’t find anywhere in Australia. If you don’t know what takoyaki are, they’re Japanese fried balls with octopus added to them. Can’t wait to make some takoyaki!
Here’s the box of the maker.
Another blah day today, so here’s a photo of the wooden floorboards. After growing up in a house of carpet and then having floorboards after moving out, I absolutely love wooden floorboards and would love to have them when we finally buy a house.
