It's time for another instagram photo dump post -thanks to all of you that have asked about my cold/flu/bug - to tell you the truth, its gotten a little bit better, but not much. I'm finding it hard to concentrate at work and by the time I finish work each day I am totally exhausted. I had a lot of stuff on this weekend - but I decided to cancel pretty much all of it due to my general exhaustion. Perhaps I'll get to see my friends again some day soon?
Anyway - here's a snap shot of what I've been up to over the past week or so.
The last week has seen me using a lot of these for my sore throat - one of my many ongoing ailments!
As the saying goes - "You can't beat Wellington on a good day".
Last Sunday Rich and I went out for a late lunch at "Carribean" - I love these giant mirrors they have in this cafe.
Tribal fabric I decided to make a new frock with - if a new frock won't cheer me up, then I doubt anything will!
So this was on Monday, got up, got dressed and then realised I wasn't going anywhere. After this I'm pretty sure I texted to to let them know I wouldn't make it in and then went back to bed.
On Monday afternoon I decided to do some study - but I can't say it was terribly successful.
I found a box to put all my patterns in - it made me realise just how many patterns I have!
I bought this pattern to make a dress for Ross and Shelley's wedding - then I just felt like my skills weren't up to it and chickened out and made a more simple design. I think I'm ready to attempt to make this dress for New Years Eve.
I forgot just how much I loved this pattern - the collar is so amazing, I think I need to make this one very, very soon.
Still feeling crappy - but wearing my new handmade Aztec dress.
We got another postcard this week - our friends Lisa and Aaris are travelling through Europe at the moment and sent us a postcard from Sweden.
We had a national earthquake drill this week in New Zealand - we were handed out these little fliers at work.
My next dress will be made from this fabric in celebration of spring - I am thinking that I will tackle a wrap around dress.
Instagram of this weeks Wednesday wardrobe challenge - modern 1950's.
Rich and I watched this movie this week - its amazing and so beautiful. I really loved it.
My cup went missing at work and I was SO annoyed - thankfully it returned to me the next day.
I bought tickets to Billy Bragg this week for Rich's Birthday present - hurrah!
A few of the DVD's that turned up from fatso this week.
Yesterday we went to the Wellington Botanical Gardens as the tulips are in full bloom - so happy spring is here.
Across the road from the botanical garden there was a lantern festival at the Chinese Anglican Church.
I am clearly colour obsessed with colour co-ordination - I even match these flowers!
Rich went shopping for sneakers yesterday - so I tried on the most crazy I could find. I was tempted to buy these gum boots - they are pretty rad!
Today was a day for even MORE study - I've got an appointment with my kaihautu (teacher) in about three weeks and have so much to do before then.
True movie geekery - Rich and I have matching Alfred Hitchcock mugs!
Here's hoping this week will be better and I'll finally kick this bug!
