Christmas-time is here...

With only a few days to go until Christmas Day, I'm feeling very excited but at the same time quite worn out.

I met up with friends last night to celebrate Christmas at our local pub, which is coincidentally called "The Local" and the consensus was we are all very tired.

Work has been slowing down this week, but socially I've been mega busy and also running around trying to get all my presents bought and wrapped, and the food for Xmas lunch.

I'm having Christmas in Melbourne this year - the BF and I are staying with his family. We're off to Midnight Mass on Friday night (my first one!) and then will have a relaxed lunch on Christmas Day. Then on Boxing Day is a big party with his mother's side of the family at their property.

I have some time off work too - two whole weeks! No big plans as of yet, other than a few movies, lunches and maybe a road trip to Daylesford.

Merry Christmas lovelies & I hope 2011 is everything you want & need it to be.

Ooh La Love

Argh, it's been too long between posts again. I don't want to be one of those bloggers people give up on, you know, you check their blog week after week to find sweet nuthin.

Well it's been an amazing month, I was in Perth to visit my family and see my lovely friends Kate and Gareth get married. The wedding was fabulous, on a winery in the Perth hills, and although temperatures were forecast to hit 39 degrees, we were very lucky with 28 degrees.

Then we got the fantastic news that our friends B & G are engaged! B was the one who introduced me & my boyfriend, and has been such a close friend to both of us for a long time.

A day or so later, we got a call with the news a couple friend of ours are pregnant with twins!

So after a lot of people having a difficult year, it's been fantastic to have three great moments in one month. Kind of funny as when I got back to work my colleagues were looking for an engagement rign on *my* finger...I had to say "not yet"!

We'd been back from Perth about a week or so when my sister Bri arrived for a holiday in Melbourne! She has been here to celebrate the wedding of one of her good friends, and also have a bit of a vaycay. It was so nice having her here (she flies back to Perth tonight, to graduate from her Nursing degree on Friday) and we had lots of great sisterly bonding time.

Anyway, better fly. How lovely are those pics btw - makes me want to be in Paris too - only thing missing would be S by my side.
