It's a grey old, humid day in Sydney today. I'm 'glowing' from the moisture and grateful that there was still a bit of a breeze in the air when I went for my run this morning.
But most of all, I'm just happy to have some time off today to potter around and attend to things like the pile of ironing that's starting back at me from next to the fireplace.
The weekend. On the upside, it was less humid which made it both outfit and make up friendly. The downside for me, though, were some crazy times at work. So I'm sorry to be glad enough for all of us that the weekend sped past. Especially as it was the last weekend of freedom for those of you whose work had a long closure period for the festive season. Hope the week has been kind to you so far as you've eased back into the daily grind of 'real' life.
But back to the weekend and the bits of it that weren't taken up with work.
I did a last minute shopping run for my aunty who was on her way back home to Singapore. I was at Aldi primarily for the chocolate but also spotted this Dr Oetker bargain for my fellow Dr O fans....
Also squeezed in a trip to Mecca for another tube of Malin + Goetz' Vitamin E cream for my aunty to try back home.
While I was at Aldi, I discovered these Merci branded chocolate fingers. Available in both milk and dark variety packs, they retail around $4 a tray and give Lindt's Lindor balls a serious run for their money...
Preschooler SSG's taken to life as four year old like a duck to water. His threenager days are well behind him and while he still loves any opportunity for adventure, he's more aware of rules and boundaries these days.
You know how I've been known to label his shoes with red nail polish initials? He's taken the technique one step further and has started giving some of his older trains new paint jobs. To be honest, it's better that the polish doesn't go to waste. If it waited around for the next time I'd use it, it would have completely dried out in the interim.
And then there was the wonton wrapping to oversee. Rows had to be counted, questions had to be asked, instructions given and the occasional sing along had to be started. Four is such a joyous age.... Long may it last.
Have you just returned to work this week? How are you bearing up?
