It also means that I had to start planning to pack today. The plan is to have everything that needs to be packed laid out in the spare room so that all I have to do on Wednesday night is order takeaway for dinner, book a taxi and then run around throwing everything into my suitcase. Of course I can't actually pack the suitcase now. It would kill the buzz of that last night at home before leaving for a holiday.

I was trying to figure out which pair would be best for the combined conditions of winery lawn and indoor reception area. Yeah, I know I should have taken them out to the front lawn and tested there but that would have involved walking down the front steps and across the driveway. I could have broken a hip or even worse taken a chunk of leather off a shoe! It's all good though, I'm packing my heel guards and numerous foot dressings.
Where do you stand on the issue of leopard print at weddings? I have a sneaking suspicion it's going to be rather chilly in Melbourne this week so my original idea of a kaftan has been abandoned. Which leaves me with me with one of two options - fail safe black or this fetching heavily discounted from Saks Off Fifth in Hawaii Moschino leopard print shift. My heart says leopard but my mind says black. I will pack both. Mr SSG and I are going out to dinner while we are away so perhaps the leopard will make its debut there rather than at the wedding.
As you can imagine, it was thirsty work planning what to wear. Just as well I had a couple of coconut juice sachets defrosting in the kitchen sink. In case you were wondering, our freezer is emptying rapidly now that Mr SSG is onto the case. We are on schedule for an earlier than anticipated annual defrost and fridge clean out. When that is done, look out Costco and the Pyrmont Fish Market - the SSGs will be restocking.
Maintaining adequate hydration is key when faced with outfit planning on the scale of what was before me. I think it's all sorted. Like Noah's ark, the outfit options will be packed in twos - dresses, heels and bags. The world can now resume spinning on its axis.

I'd better get going. I'm meeting my cousin and his family for dinner tonight. They're staying near Prymont and we're off for a buffet dinner. I'm not sure if I've fasted long enough to do the Star Casino's rumoured 130 dish affair justice though.
Have a lovely evening and take care.
