well festival is over.....and spring is on it's way. this is an old photo from my old blog and this is when i used to live 5 minutes away from the beach in perth. life is definitely different in melbourne when it gets hot - you have to jump in the car/tram/train to get to a beach!
we are lucky enough to have 4 days off in a row (i have 5) and we've decided to pack up the car and head north to Big River.
so today i'm attempting to do a few things around the house (nothing better than coming home to a relatively clean house) and starting a mouse pile of a few things we'll take with us. hoping to spot some wildflowers. again - different to western australian country, victorian country does not have anywhere near as many wildflowers.
so to all melbournites - enjoy your tuesday public holiday!

a day off at last!
enjoying spring and fresh salad greens every day from the garden.
went with birthday money from mum to buy a lovely galvanised steel watering can, white oil for the kaffir lime tree, radish and dill seeds, teeny tiny creeping seaside daisies, potting mix, a new pot for my jellybean succulent and some more cos seedlings!
(and kee is off to an interview for a potential apprenticeship.....fingers crossed!!!!)

saw fischerspooner last night as part of the festival....
the jury is out......couldn't decide if i liked it but then i like the fact that i'm unsure - makes me like it all the more!
gosh - tired and at work for the 14th day in a row (thats why the previous sentence probably makes no sense at all!)
all i know is that i'm so happy to work with all the people that i do. i love them dearly
