I Like: Ghost Patrol

A few years ago I saw a documentary on Ghost Patrol. He does some amazing work which has a real whimsical vibe. The doco showed him putting his art works up in the streets around Melbourne. I love artists who share their art with their community.

The Smell Of My New Jumper

I bought a new bonds sloppy joe.
It looks like this only blue.
& only I don't look like that.

Anyhow. It smells sooo nice. After a year of only buying second hand clothes, I have really come to appreciate the smell of newness. (But am sticking to secondhand as much as I can.)

I am wearing it now with Ugg boots cos it is rainy and cold, and I wanted a snuggly jumper.

10 Things I'm Thankful for:

Here are a few things I am thankful for today:
1. Getting up at 4am to watch the Socceroos lose to Germany.
(Not thankful for the losing part, but the fun-ness of watching early games with friends.)
2. My Cosy Bed.
3. 11:30 brekky of crumpets with strawberries and honey, and a cup of English brekky tea.

4. Listening to Mumford & Sons, Imogen Heap, Jose Gonzalez & KT Tunstall and everyone else I love with my ipod on random.
5. My big comfy chair. It is very good for reading books & newspapers. And for facebooking. hehe

6. Knowing that Coldplay are in the studio again. ooh my heart is singing.
7. It isn't raining. After weeks of raining, it does me good to see the sun shining.
8. Clothes drying on the clothesline. (Yep I am thankful for these little things.)
9. Yummy new shampoo that makes my hair smell delicious
10. I am making Pad Thai for Dinner. Mmm.
