This week coming I am taking a holiday. I know! I haven’t had a holiday apart from the times work is actually closed since… Um… A long time. I think since Christmas 2010. So I’m not only well overdue but well over my leave limit. And that means I’ve decided to take a week off. I’m not going anywhere, I’m hopefully just doing stuff around the house, and I’m not running any pieces on KK&T. That’s right – my holiday is the site’s holiday. No content for another week.
Don’t stop entering this competition to win one of 10 double passes to the Australian Teenage Expo, though, because I will be reading!
And on to my week (or weeks, because very naughty T missed last week’s wrap up) in pics:
I had lunch with Kimba (KimbaLikes) and Catherine (Cup of Tea and a Blog) and little C. Catherine brought us rainbow cake! How epic is it? And I caught this beautiful moment between Catherine & little C. Kimba brought me these jeans she’d bought on sale which didn’t suit her, and they look GREAT on me, I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so I can wear them.
Mum & I went to pick up the bathroom furniture I want to put into my bathrooms to make them look like they’ve been renovated. That’s the vanity I’ve picked, but it won’t be as wide as that one, it’ll stop at her leg. That’s the basin we selected. Then we went out to lunch at my favourite restaurant (Bravo Trattoria Crows Nest). Mum had a go sitting on the fancy toilets. This is our delicious, amazing dessert at Bravos.
Then on the Sunday we visited my in law’s place to say goodbye as it’s being sold. One of the activities in preparing the place to go was to strip all the lemons from the lemon tree with my nieces. Loved it. I like this car. So when your mother in law gives you lemons you make… 😉
Bella being cute and being absorbed into the sofa. I had a good hair day. This cat has been visiting our house every day and playing with Lionel for a bit then, when Lionel comes inside, she sits at the front door and cries non-stop for him to come back. It’s kind of weird, to be honest.
This morning’s sunshine was spectacular. And on the way home one day I was completely blown away by this dog because he was HUGE. So I had to stop to talk to him and his owner offered to take a pic of us. Look how big he is!
So this week my mother guest posted about the PNG “Solution” and why it’s not OK, Bek brought us the second part of her series on budgeting, you can read the first part here, focusing on tracking your spending and writing up a budget. We talked about streaking, and about the important difference between giving up and letting go. And yesterday I ran the first of a two part series talking about teens, this part was about respecting yourself, your body and others.
The best thing I read outside KK&T this week was a really tough call, but I think I’m going to have to give it to this post about gender-flipping.
And I’m lusting after a good night’s rest.
How was your week?
