I am finally getting around to doing a post after being super lazy. My Christmas was spent opening presents in bed, eating, drinking, watching S2 of Mad Men, eating some more, drinking some more, watching season one of True Blood (in which I had to get over my mild dislike of Anna Paquin. I still find her annoying for some reason, but the show is really good despite this) and so on and so forth.
David gave me a lovely vintage dress which I wore later on in the afternoon when it turned into a scorcher (and after finally getting out of my pyjamas).
The dress I am wearing in these photos isn't the dress though, I took these on Christmas Eve Eve. This was one of those dresses I had laying about for a while that needed shortening before I could wear it. The shoes I am wearing were a Christmas present to myself - I love them so much that I may have gone back and got the other colour way too, but you'll just have to wait and see...
Sydney preparations are humming along. I've been given lots of great advice from some lovely Sydneysiders which has really been appreciated.
I sold my car (after a day and a half of being advertised), I've sorted out a big pile of clothing that doesn't need to come with me, David and I have settled on which suburbs we want to live in (and have faced the fact that we may be stuck in a studio), I've booked the kittys flights up to Auckland where she will stay until we call for her to come over to Sydney and I've talked to my Uncle who we will be staying with when we arrive.
My mind is still racing with things we need to get done though, we arrive in Sydney in just over 6 weeks time!! And when you put it like that, its not very long at all!! We have about 5 weeks left in Dunedin and then we spend one week up north with my family before heading off into the great unknown.
Oh, that sounds really dramatic doesn't it?
David and I were sitting in the sunshine with the kitten when she started playing with his shoe laces.
And after taking photos of cuteness playing with shoe laces, I started taking photos of daisy's and then a bug landed on one just as I was taking it. I think its quite cool in a gross, bug sort of way!
Any way, I am off to enjoy some sunshine! After christmas day it all turned to poo weather wise and has just fined up today. I am wearing my Christmas dress and tonight we are going to cook crayfish for dinner. We are storing some things for a friends wedding, including 100 crayfish in our freezer and so she gave us three as a thank you. I can't say that I have ever cooked a crayfish - yay for google!
Also, David and I are off to Naseby tomorrow until Friday so have a fantastic New Years and I'll see you all next year (and catch up with all those lovely comments from over the Christmas period).
