That time we went camping.

Camp all set up.
My cider had a heart in it! I do love cider though so it's cool.
This guy had got caught below the high tide line at Christmas...bummer.

Fishing with Dad...we didn't catch anything.

Picnic time
The olives got a little frozen, we had to defrost them somehow!

Getting some tan time in!

Taking photos of the dolphins.
Watching the surfers.

Bye bye camping, it's been swell!

Photo project - day 27

Finishing the day with a bang, and by bang I mean eating a milky way bar, drinking tea and watching bad TV!

You just can't have pretty things.

This is what I tell myself when I silly-ly get online and tempt my self with the pretty things. Things that in order to buy, one must have the cash...this one does not...BIG sadface.

So instead I'll show you guys.

ASOS australia, I think i'm in love.

New Girl

So the story goes,

I accidentally tuned into the second half of the second episode of New Girl last night. I thought to myself, probably should watch the first episode and the first bit of this one, just to check it out and cure my curiosity. So I downloaded them, up to episode number 8... and proceeded to watch every single one.

Today I worked.

Tonight I came home, had a shower, made dinner and downloaded the remaining two episodes available and wrote this blog.

Guess what I'll be doing once I press publish on this bad boy?

God I love this show.

Photo project - day 26

best part of my otherwise fairly rubbish day.
Yellow curry, yoghurt, rice, pickled lime, naan, pappadom.

Photo project - day 25

Australia day happened and then the day after {the day of rest} happened so therefore no photo project.

Tonight however I went and watched the QLD Roar get schooled by the Newcastle Jets, in the drizzling rain, and we even missed this penalty. When I say missed I mean we may aswell not even have taken it. My main man Berisha {#7} wasn't even playing due to a match ban so overall, an average evening of football.

Photo project - day 22

This is how I feel about the rank rank weather we're having currently. I'm prettu sure I could have swum to work this morning and the tower of dirty laundry that's piling up is threatening to take over the laundry and surrounding area! If this keeps up I'll be forced to either visit the laundromat across the road { barely even an option} or hike up to the laundry of mum and dad, and fingers crossed get dinner into that bargain.

Come on sun, try a little harder!

Photo project - day 21

Very relevant choice of sock I made this morning considering the rank rank weather today! I'm hoping for at least one rainbow after all this rain!

Photo project - day 20

So yesterday I got a bit slack and didn't post a photo. Except for the one that was making up for my slackness for the previous day.
Today though I am totally making up for it with a breakfast montage AND a photo project photo.
To begin, here we are with a breakfast of champions. Skinny flat white and a blueberry muffin care of
In-cog-neat-o, the best coffee around and right around the corner from my work...almost too convenient.
And to follow, a little guy I saved from the freezing temperatures of our aircon at work today. I hope he likes the outdoors as much as the drawing room carpet!

mmm, breakfast!

I may have forgotten yesterday to post...my bad.

But here are my wee nasturtium plants I'm growing from seed, they're charging on!

Photo project - day 17

New linen, or really manchester in general is my secret obsession.

I love it. I need it. If it's pretty I must have it.

Welcome home my lovely new doona cover and matching pillow set, you're in the right place.

Photo project - day 16

What was that I heard you say? Greatest gardener ever? Why thankyou, don't mind if I do!

I brought these cucumber plants back from the brink and look how they re pay me. They know who's feeding them and keeping the possums at bay!

Photo project - day 15

After a seven day week and today being particularly gross and rainy, all I'm good for is a cup of tea and a good few chapters.

Photo project - day 14

I had the best idea to post about today and then it got all rainy and gross when I wanted to take a photograph of my bean seedlings {my best idea yet} to post.

Sooo, you'll have to just do with a photo of the newest addition to my shoe collection {I've been told I have sone sort of problem but I feel that one can never have too many shoes}. They're cute, they're leopard print AND they were ridiculously on sale.

I love them like a kid loves cupcakes x

Photo project - day 13

In keeping with my earlier new years resolution post and the idea of jamie oliver-ing the shit out of cooking for one, tonight I tackled jerk chicken, grilled corn with beans and rice.
It was flippin delicious and could only have been made better with an ice cold beer and the boy to share it with. It even looks like it came straight out of the 30 minute meals cookbook {let's not mention that it took me just shy of an hour rather than 30 mins though}.

Photo project - days 11 & 12

Day 11 - nothing of any note or excitement happened today so therefore I refuse to put up a photo. I worked 13 hours and it was rubbish, the end.

Day 12 -  Went to the soccer tonight with my Dad and swiss friend Linda, it was an awesome game AND we won. Take THAT Sydney!

Photo project - day 10

Super cute baby time!
Rice paper spring roll dinner with baby Mia and the laydees, an awesome night of baby cuddles, wine, delicious dinner, great chat and facebook stalking tips 101.

Photo project - day 9

Today was the first day I have been able to sit cross legged, on the grass since July 24th 2011...i'm finally winning!

Photo project - day 8

January 10th, 2012
..the day before the hottest January day on record, at 34° is giving tomorrow a run for that title.
I feel like this postcard {from Able & Game on etsy} says it all.

Sanity kept by photos

So I realise that so far this project isn't going along as these things are supposed to, but too bad! I got the option to head up the beach for a few days camping without phone reception and I jumped at the chance!
So here are the four days I missed whilst galivanting on the beach, now I'm up to date and there will be a.non photo protect related blog coming soon about our camping adventures!

Day 4 - day one of our coming trip, camp set up and now it's time to hit the beach!

Day 5 - still camping but we hit rainbow beach to buy some bait and have a hard earned cider at the pub, mine had a love great in it, can you see it?!

Day 6 - we found this weird bear in the sand near our campsite and it became a player in our slightly skewed version of the spicks and specks board game that we made up after playing the real version.

Day 7 - the view at 6:30am from the track up to the light house, back into the bay.

A photo a day keeps my sanity ok..

I know I should have started this on January first but let's face it, I've never been one to be on time for much...ever.

So anyway, this year I have decided to post a photo a day of whatever takes my fancy, makes me smile or generally just gets me through the day.

So here they are starting from Jan 3rd, 

Day 1 - one of my lovelies and her moving house paraphernalia.

Day 2  -A link that made me chuckle, as most ginger related humour does.

Day 3 - Today, some egg carton art found at work {in the Art Gallery}, probably shouldn't have been there but brightened my day.
