I Saw:

I went and saw "The Blind Side" on Saturday with a friend. It was a really incredible movie. I knew it was going to be... I cried watching the trailer on my computer.. eek. Not really a movie tears person. The fact that it is based on a true story makes it sooo much better. I love movies that inspire us to be more generous, open and trusting.

You should definitely see it.

Rebound books in Melbourne make bookmarks from old book spines, and note books from the covers and pages. I have one of these bookmarks. It is so friendly. Currently I am reading "The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter" for my book club, and my bookmark greets me each time I open it.

I am also waiting on my copy of "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" to arrive. My book club is doing 2 books each month, and I am hoping to make it through both.
Just quietly.. if you are ever purchasing books, I have found the book depository to be the cheapest. No postage costs!!! Yeow!

Today I:

After a crazy hectic week which included working for 2 different jobs, 2 days off sick, and driving around a camera man for 3 days for a youth conference, I woke up this morning knowing I still had an assessment that needed finishing as it is due today.Yuk. So I pumped myself up by dressing in a new skirt and knee-high stockings I bought last weekend.

I am so into knee-highs at the moment. After completing the assessment, I rewarded myself by going out for my favourite salad... warm veggies (rocket, beet root, pumpkin, chickpeas, pistachios, and haloumi) from The Depot. Yum.
Then I took some photos of a circus tent with a few of my cameras.
Now I am going to read my book club book and finish a few little card books I have been working on. Will post pics of them when they are done.

It's Been a While.

It has been a while since I have blogged. Real life has been busy.... Here are some things that I am loving and looking forward to for Autumn:

Baking weather... it is now cool enough for me to not mind having the oven on. So i am loving being able to bake again.

Doona Weather: Yay for blankets and snuggly cosyness.

Book reading time: I am loving being a part of a book club and getting into fiction. I wish I had a library like this one!

These clothes are from J Crew. I wish I had these outfits. Though I am not sure when exactly I would wear them, as they don't really suit working with children and teenagers. But in my imagination... i wear stuff like this every day.

(eek I have not credited the pics... sorry I can't remember where they are from.. the blogs I follow most likely.. but there is a loooong list.)
