past weekend

This past weekend was lovely. I spent it just relaxing and catching up on things I wanted to do. I watched a lot of the winter Olympics coverage – I’m fascinated by the inside look at Vancouver (you can understand why) and also by some of the sports themselves. I have been particularly fond of the ice skating/dancing, bobsled and short track speed skating. If I try to analyse what these have in common I would say action, beauty and something with a visible danger risk. I don’t know what that says about me! Haha. I can take the ice skating back to my grandma, who shared with me not only her love of that, but also opera! The bobsled I can take back to an old movie I used to love – you may have heard of it. Cool Runnings! And the short track speed skating – well maybe you can trace that back to when Aussie Stephen Bradbury won gold that time by staying upright when all the others fell. Whatever it is, I have been enjoying it!

 I also managed to do a little shopping and gardening, and I did some work on this blog! I changed over to wordpress because it seemed so much easier, and has a lot more options! I like to change the background and things to make it more personal, and I think I have accomplished just that.

 My lovely friend Kristy came around on Friday night to check out my furniture to see if she’d like to buy any for her place! Seeings I am moving overseas indefinitely I thought it’d make sense to sell as much of my stuff as I can so as to not have to leave a heap with Mum. I think I managed to sell my dining table & chairs, and my two cute lil bookshelves – and I may have some luck with my couch and chest of drawers too! Fingers crossed. I’d love for them to go to a home where I know they’ll be appreciated J I might also lend Kristy some of my art, as I think that art should be displayed and appreciated, and it would be sad to keep them hidden in storage. I do love my art, but unfortunately I don’t think I can pack them in my suitcase!

 Now onto an outfit shot! This is in my true mix ‘n match style. Someone once said to me “I can just imagine you in the wardrobe choosing what to wear. You’d say ‘now, what is the least likely outfit to ever go together? this, this and this.’ And then that’s what you would wear!” I don’t know if I am THAT bad. Hahaha.

 Fuzzy, action shot!

Top – Sussan

Vest – Sussan

Here is a close up of the different patterns.

A lot of my wardrobe is filled with stuff I got from work, but when it is free or cheap that’s a good thing!

Hope your weekend was wonderful!


Hockey gold!

Just a short snippet to say how happy I am to hear that Canada won gold in the ice hockey! For a host nation who loves that sport so much it couldnt have a more fitting end to what has been a wonderful winter olympics!
