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:
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.
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.
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 nicecafes and have it from a proper coffee cup.
In the meant time I have been guzzling these 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 had 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 days 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.
