My worries about not knowing many people in Sydney are slowly disappearing. There are actually quite a few Sydneysiders in the fashion blog-o-sphere which makes me quite excited.
Monday was the first day of my official holidays and I spent it attending to a huge pile of clothing that needed adjusting. I am now the proud owner of several well fitting vintage dresses that I can actually wear and this dress is one of them. The bust was too big for me and so it took me about 10 minutes to take in and throw on for the day. I think it will be one of those dresses I wear a lot in the Sydney heat.
Christmas is only two days away and there is a distinct lack of Christmas at my house. David and I are doing Christmas by ourselves this year. We are heading up to Naseby for a few days after to spend some time with Davids dad and unfortunately, my parents are in the North Island which means they get us for a few days in February before we leave for Sydney.
That meant that we decided not to buy anything in the Christmas decoration department (no tree, no tinsel, no decorations etc) for two reasons - to save money and so that we wouldn't be left with things when we move early next year.
I did buy Christmas wrapping paper yesterday though along with spending a small fortune on Christmas day food. I don't seriously think two people can eat and drink that much food and alcohol, especially as I'm not a huge drinker, but, it should prove to be a good day :)
