It's been quite a week!
Monday involved going out for dinner (Italian) and a dance performance with a friend from Auckland.
I pulled out this gorgeous Salon Celia coat thingy I picked up a couple of weeks ago....it was one of those ones, y'know, the ones you don't think you really need and you leave behind...and then can't stop thinking about...after nearly two weeks since seeing it in an opshop when out with darling Leisa, I couldn't stop myself from dropping back in to see if it was still there.
It was, therefore I knew it was meant to be!

Handbag-a Rex, gift from G

Wednesday was G's birthday, so we went out for a few drinkies after work and then on to dinner (Thai).....
I'd asked him what colour he would like me to wear for the day, and he said orange: his favourite colour.
The damned yellow shoes gave me blisters though.
Frock-the sweetest Squirrel
Necklace-60's, darling Tamera
Friday morning we popped into The Vintage Cupboard to pick up some scrummy red boots I'd spotted and then left behind in another vacant moment...G scored a splendid jacket too!

Friday night Loafer had a gig out at Lincoln.
And my night was completed by carking out on Nix and Si's couch with Kyzer, a gorgeous little Schnauser they're baby sitting at the moment.

And Saturday involved a few errands about town.......
I am clutching a gin and tonic as I type, the sun is out and the birds are chirping in a most Springlike manner.
All we need is for somebody to mow their lawn.
