A short long weekend

Sadly the long weekend is over here.  There is no public holiday for Easter Monday and of course there is no Anzac Day.  

There is still remembrance and reflection happening though.  Both my grandfathers fought in WWII and both came back broken men.  Hard not to really when you try and imagine what they must have experienced.  Both passed away when I was of a young age but that does not stop me from reflecting on the sacrifices they made for themselves, for their families and for their fellow countrymen.

Now on to the weekend just been.  Our plans to meet up with friends at the beach fell through due to illness (theirs not ours) so we found ourselves faced with a weekend of NOTHING!


So we ate a few of these...


Drank a "couple" of these...


Did a bit of this...

And nibbled on some of these...

Happy Easter!

Friday Drool

How far would you go for the perfect pair of swimmers?

Search every swimwear shop in town?

Scavenge through every conceivable online retailer?

Get your mother to check out the stores around her locally?

Yes, we are talking about me but when you see these pretties, you will understand why.

All the above options came up with nada in my size.


The mother called and said there was a brand new pair on eBay.

The Seafolly Plume maillot retails for around $SGD 190 and I won them for FAR less.

They're currently on their way over to my hot little hands and I am eagerly checking the mailbox every day.

Most of us have been there, either as a bridesmaid or having been the bride so I'm sure we can relate to this new movie coming out soon.

I literally laughed out loud at the end scene.

I will definitely be seeing this movie when it's out :)
