weekend happenings ...

So it seems I turned another year older last Friday.

This was the only and unexpected photo taken of me on my
Little Nikita was sure it was her birthday all over again
(it's only been 3 months)
We spent the weekend in Melbourne with family.
Ate paella for dinner and then a surprise black forest cake!
We strolled along the Esplanade in St Kilda on Saturday morning
roller skated Saturday arvo.
My jaw was sore from smiling and laughing.
I had forgotten how much fun roller skating is
despite the fact I haven't for approx 30 years
We hung with the uber cool on Brunswick St on Sunday indulging in coffee, lunch
and a spot of shopping
 and then drove home late sunday night.
It was perfect.

I have a stack of hemming to finish, dresses hanging strategically around my living area that need tweaking, a pile of newly acquired vintage sheets to wash and the most incredible genuine 50's outfit to photograph and share with you.

I hope you all had a fab weekend too
