Just a quick post today and a shot of my little miserable sick BuBBa.
Things are very low key at the BuBble's household today. That horrible, ugly gremlin called gastro got it's claws in to all of us over the last few days and we're all feeling very lethargic and sapped of all energy.
I'll be back tomorrow feeling better and ready for Friday Drool.
BuBba "enjoying" his first time in a jumping castle
Oh boy, what a weekend. A busy weekend spent socialising and tidying/packing. We had afternoon tea/s with friends (Saturday & Sunday) and met up with some close friends yesterday morning at Rushcutter's Bay who were visiting from interstate.
I'm pretty sure this is going to be the pattern for our remaining weekends in Sydney.
On Saturday morning the sun was shining and the birds were chirping so we got ourselves organised (relatively) early and set off to the local markets. After a bacon and egg roll, complete with dripping barbecue sauce, and a hot coffee, we strolled through the markets and then wandered home.
The little dude was obviously a bit knackered by this stage and didn't even notice that his cap had fallen over his eyes.
Then we tottered off to the shops to buy some bean bag beads to fill up this little beauty I bought from Louise at Table Tonic. I've also bought a few of her gorgeous hand woven Ikat cushions. When I manage to put it all together, I promise to show you a photo of the finished look.
Yesterday was a quieter day spent mainly at home starting to get ourselves sorted for the move. We are clearing out a few things and there are now shoes, dresses, toys, bbq's and outdoor settings all on eBay waiting for some lucky people to snatch them up.
We did venture out of the house for a short while and took BuBba to the park for a swing. As you can tell from the pic though, he was pretty grumpy. Daddy BuBbles likes to be a man of mystery so I've blocked out his face for mystery's sake.
Have a great week!
Today I'm playing along with Point + Shoot and Week-a-Boo. Please go and check out Chantelle and Claire's blogs today if you haven't already.
It's cosy where we're living at the moment. There's no room for a desk and our laptops currently reside on our dining table. As such, we eat sitting on the floor at the coffee table more nights than not.
I've been dreaming of the day when I have a study. Dreaming so much that I've been collecting snapshots of inspiration for when that day comes. Maybe in Singapore...
I told all of my work colleagues today that I was leaving. To say they were surprised was an understatement.
One of my other colleagues dropped another bombshell at the same time (luckily I was privy to her secret prior). She is leaving too and is packing up her young family and returning to Ireland.
It's a lot for our workmates to digest and I think they were all shocked slightly. Collectively my work colleague/friend and I have been back at work a grand total of 6 months since we both finished our maternity leave and now we're both heading off in to the distance.
I really do have a great job considering my profession and in years to come, if I ever do find myself back in Sydney looking for employment, I will be knocking on my work's door quick as a flash. I may even resort to begging.
