This beautiful little dress was thrifted the other day, it reminds me of a 1940's tennis dress. It falls beautifully and fits like a dream (although the belt only just does up, damn those girls and their teeny tiny waists!!). Its made of a heavy cotton fabric but breathes nicely and so is perfect for those long lazy summer days and the skirt swishes just perfectly when you walk too.
Call me old fashioned but I've only just discovered how fantastic having google reader is! I can subscribe to all my favourite blogs and every time they post something new it automatically pops up in my reader, this means i don't have to check those blogs a couple of times a day to see if they have updates, its great!!! David has been using it for a while and every now and then he's explained it to me but I've never gotten round to setting up my own until now. One of the best things about google reader is that it can see what kind of blogs I've already subscribed to and therefore what i like reading and it can suggest other blogs along that wavelength that i might like to read. So if you haven't set up a reader of some description (there are millions out there, you don't have to use google) then i fully suggest you do!!
On Thursday our new neighbours from across the road came over to invite David and I to a few drinks tonight to meet everyone on the street, there are apparently a number of newbies to the area and so it will be nice to meet a few neighbours and not be the only new people there!!. I do however, have a habit of getting into my pj's when i get home and they happened to come over after i had changed - a bit embarrasment... but oh well, i can make a new impression tonight :)
We also went to see the christmas lights in Dunedin last night - they were spectacularly underwhelming :)
This will be my last post for a few days or maybe even for the year depending on what little unexpected things pop up (as they do this time of year). I leave tomorrow for my little holiday and so want to wish you all a very merry Christmas - thank you for all the support you've shown me and my little fledgling blog this year. Being relatively new to blogging I've been welcomed with open arms and have made many a 'virtual' friend because of it. And in case i don't get back in time for New Years then i hope it is spent with friends and family and brings new beginnings (because lets face it, we all need a new start once in a while!!).
I'll miss your blogs, but at least I'll come home to a wealth of posts from you all on my reader :)
PS) A big thank you to all those that stopped buy the oxfam website and bought a present that matters hugely to those who will receive it. And for those who are 'christmas present buying' challenged - go here...

Wishing you a White Christmas...
Or at least a sunny warm one if you live in the Southern Hemisphere.
