a party dress

Last night I had the pleasure of attending Kayla's birthday party, dress code: "that thing you never get an opportunity to wear". I seem to wear most of the silly things I own, but this lovely lace dress I bought from clever nettle a few years ago really doesn't come out as often as it should. Besides, where better to take it than a birthday party? I felt like a little girl ready for a game of pass the parcel!

Our Nation's Capital

These are the last of the photos from our trip (which was almost 9 weeks ago now! Opps - so much for real-time blogging). We spent a night with our friends who have recently made Canberra their (I hope temporary) home. It was a wonderful time with yummy food and boardgames, wrapped up with a visit to the War Memorial.

 Postcards from France, made as mementos for American troops.

 Some photos from the wonderful temporary exhibition of military nursing.

Historic Braidwood - home to apple trees, old fashioned pubs and over-priced antique stores. We stopped to browse, then rattled on to Canberra.

I just want to rant about these shoes for a minute, because they so are completely wonderful! I ummmmed and ahhhed about whether to get them after seeing Emily's, then finally went for it and bought them. They are so ridiculously comfy. These photos don't really show them off, but I have no doubt you will be seeing them a whole lot more!

Bateman's Bay

Bateman's Bay with the best fish and chips eaten in the golden light of a long summer day with the company of beady-eyed friends.
