Where have you been

No where really. I’ve been right here.

But a lot has happened.

The house stuff is coming together now.

Our land is now registered and the title will be transferred to our names by next week. I own a patch of dirt in Sydney! Yay.

We picked our bricks:

Austral bricks decision

Just another shade of brown, with another name. This is either the Leisure or Engage by Austral Bricks.

I can’t wait to start buying things for the house, but we don’t have any place to store things. So I’ll just plan and inspire myself on Pinterest until it makes sense to buy things.

Would you like to see some house decor type posts on the blog? Or want to keep updated on our home build progress? Let me know and I may just come up with a few posts.

Adele concert

I went to the Adele concert in Sydney. She was amazing. We didn’t have expensive seats or anything but it was just so amazing to be there. Unforgettable.

This concert was different to the ones I have been in the past. More guys than I expected. But lots of people had bought their mums out. It was really sweet. Sydney transport was chaotic as usual, but everyone was really kind to each other.

Picollo coffee

I’m really trying to slow down my coffee consumption from one a day to one a week.

I have so much mediocre coffee at work, I rather save it for the weekend when we go out to nice cafes and have it from a proper coffee cup.

In the meant time I have been guzzling these Twinings Teas.

Twinings Teas

Funnily enough, I haven’t been missing coffee that much because these are delicous. I love the Lime and Peppermint tea, but the smell of the Chamomile, Honey and Vanilla is seriously intoxicating. Let me know if you have tried either or any others in the range by Twinings.

I did a weekend day trip with my sisters to a South Indian Hindu Temple in Helensburgh, South of Sydney.

There we hadย masala dosa and chai. For $7

If you haven’t had one of these before, do try it next time at an Indian restaurant. It’s basically a rolled up savory crepe with soft potatoes inside.

After the temple we went to Coalcliff Rockpools to catch some of the last sunny daysย of the Sydney summer.

After several years of driving past the Western Sydney Regional Parkland, we finally drove in for a walk. We entered through Cowpasture Road near Horsley Drive and treated ourselves to a walk.

Thanks to the record breaking rain we had in March everything was super lush and green.

So good to have these peaceful walking tracks so close to home. I’ll be visiting so much more now.

They also had park areas and bbq picnic areas with the expected amenities.

There have been lots of religious festivities on at this time too. I only attended one small event at a cousins house.

This is what I wore:

It’s a very simple look and the outfit is several years old. The simplicity of it makes it very classic. I love wearing Indian clothes. Not decked up like a bride or anything, but just for simple wear. Nothing is more elegant.

How have you guys been?

I’ve tried to catch up on most blog I follow but been sad to see that some of my favourite bloggers are no longer posting.

  1. You got to choose your brick colour! I’d love that. There was a game I used to play when I was a kid that was essentially building a house and decorating it from scratch. I was hooked! This is like that game coming to life. ๐Ÿ˜€ Yes please on the house decor and updates!
    I’m still soooo jealous you went to see Adele live – how incredible. โค
    I'm in the market for non-caffeinated teas – will have to keep that Chamomile, Honey and Vanilla in mind.
    Your outfit is gorgeous! Love the colour combo. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. It was actually really boring Stashy lol. I can’t imagine having to sell bricks for a living.
      That game sounds like fun! Have you ever played Sims? It’s a huge weakness for me.
      Do you guys get Twinings there?
      Thanks for stopping by!
