Having a long weekend last weekend got me all mucked up this week!
On Tuesday I thought it was Monday, on Wednesday I thought it was Thursday....and next thing I know it's Friday and I'm freakin' out over what frock to wear!
We decided we needed a little lunch date.
We've been missing our favourite Thai restaurant; they still haven't opened since the qukae, and I'm not sure if the owners are even in the country.
So we looked up some Thai restaurants on an NZ restaurant guide site, and after dismissing two we had intended to try due to terrible reviews, took ourselves off to Benjarong, on Riccarton Rd.
It had glowing reviews-and they certainly deserve them!
Our meals were scrumptious!
We rolled out of there feeling rather deliciously full of food and wine, and trundled our way home through the park.....and then took a little detour into the Botanic Gardens!
There were oldies for miles, must have been a retirement home day out!
I basked in their admiration.
Coat-60's from our local St Vinnies de Paul opshop, $10
Scarf-60's, I think, opshopped for probably $1
White beads-60's, opshopped, 50 cents
Tights-70's, opshopped, I think 50 cents
Handbag-60's beauty case, Shabby Chic Market, $5
Sunglasses-opshopped, $3, I think. Or were they $5?!
Not anywhere near Vix 's amazing 5 pound outfit-which is pretty common for her! But pretty good. I expect 5 pound is about $10-12NZ, so I am pretty sure I can manage that, I just wasn't thinking of it when I got dressed this morning!
O, and I made my hairbow out of an opshopped crimplene scrap and an opshopped hairclip.
Showing them what I got!
Right, going to have a quiet night in tonight, I think we might watch a movie.
Tomorrow we are going out to a birthday party in Teddington, where Jo will be conducting her annual champagne tasting, and there will be music and frivolity!
WTF am I gonna wear?!
O, Lena doll, my guacamole is as basic as it comes!
Just avocado, tomato, red onion, coriander (cilantro to Americans), salt and lemon juice.x
Here's my favourite song by Hunters and Collectors, a good old Aussie pub band from way back.
