I hope you all had a nice weekend, mine was really relaxing and chilled out. Nice. That pleasant and unchallenging middle place below fantastic, and well above ordinary.
Saturday morning was Haircut Day, that once every 6 weeks day that includes as many Marie Claire's as I can read in an hour (usually 2), and boosted self esteem. Yay. Although this time around my hairdresser informed me that I am starting to get more grey hairs on one side of my head than the other, making me basically my original colour on one side and a lighter (read greyer) version on the other. What she expected me to do with that information, other that stare at her in a horrified fashion, I will never know.
Afterwards I made a little shopping trip to the Broadway Shopping centre, where I swished through the more glamorous shops before donning a disguise and popping into KMart and Target (for coughpyjamas-and-a-hot-water-bottlecough). I had a nice walk home through the autumn sunshine, before grabbing my knitting and heading to cafe Barmuda to meet up with the Sydney Sity Klickers. There was quite a crowd of us this time around, and Kerry pleasantly surprised me by giving me one of the pink & blue flowering bromeliads that I photographed at the markets the previous weekend, which he had dug out of his own garden. Sweet!
Sunday morning I headed back to the markets again, this time to meet up with a whole posse of friends. After an hour or so spent wandering the markets and buying veggies, we retired to Meaghan & Jamie's house just around the corner for a long late morning tea. (OMG, I'm sorry I didn't save you a chocolate brownie, because really they were most excellent. Anyway, I know you're watching your weight.)
In the afternoon I headed to the pub to knit with my pub knitting peeps, and then home for the usual Sunday night routine, making dinner, trying to find anything else to watch on the teev that isn't Big Brother, etc. (Actually, on ABC2 there were two fantastic architectural documentaries back to back! One about Sir John Soane, and one about Eileen Gray - including her larger architectural works, such as her now sadly derelict E-1027 House. Fascinating stuff.)
So that was my weekend. How was yours?
