Thank you everyone for your lovely comments on my last post! I am all better now thanks to lots of sunshine, good food and wonderful friends (including you guys!). Because I am much too hyped up after a fantastic weekend and the excitement that warm weather and dress-wearing brings, I thought I’d write a little 'gratitude/what has been going on in my life these last few months’ list, rather than anything that requires too much concentration!
Things I am grateful for:
-warm weather! (in case I have talked about that enough...)
-tea dates with lovely people
-housewarmings and dress-up parties
-Europe in exactly three months from today!!!!
-Becoming a permanent staff writer for lip
-having a short story accepted into the annual anthology FourW (out in November, so excited!)
-my Masters course at my amazing new university
-family BBQs and that fact that they are becoming a weekly tradition
-my dog recovering from his leg surgery much faster than expected. He is now back to his happy, lovely self J
-being a bit silly with my savings and buying a Halloween costume and a one-piece 1950s swimsuit (I’m forever practical...)
-applying for a job as a Santa’s helper in the mall. Fingers crossed!
-getting into the NSW Finals of Miss Pinup Australia (it’s very silly and very cheesecake; filled with lots of petticoats, pretty dresses, and crazy hairstyles)
-The decision to save for a coffee shop with my sister and our friend (who is an accountant, which is very lucky for us!) So hopefully in less than two years we’ll have our own little business!
-exclamation marks!! (obviously!!!)
-date nights with lots of food and silly movies
-Canberra having their very first Christmas markets this December
-having tomorrow off with Joel (he’s had to work a lot of hours these last few weeks, so I am so glad to have him to myself for a whole day!)
-having five pieces of cake over four days. Impressive, yes?
Now enough about me! What wonderful things have been going on in your lives?
