Sisterly Sundays

The premise.

2 pics for you today, seeing as I was a bad, bad blogger last Sunday and did not post.

A leisurely Sunday swim at Bondi.

Because in our city we get blue skies.

Musical Mondays

A Valentines' themed Musical Monday today.

This song brings back memories of barefoot stomping around on the dance floor at our wedding, with my wedding dress hitched up.

Check this website out for more dead-set amazing concerts to 'take away' performed in random locations.

Sweet, sweet designs.

Sisterly Sundays

My little sister has moved to London. Fact.
I shall miss her muchly. Fact.

Cue the Sisterly Sunday post. The premise being that every Sunday I shall send a little bit of interweb love my sister's way. (A.K.A Item #27 on my 30x30 list.) Snapshots of home, memories of mad moments, unmissable episodes of a life left behind.....virtual parcels of love.

Welcome to the first Sisterly Sunday.

The pose before 'the' pose. Sisterly mirror imaging. Rojo Rocket. January 2011.

Tengo grandes planes para el 2011: Enero*

Item #14 on my 30x30 list involves keeping a monthly photo journal. The Man got me a whizz-bang new photo-making machine for Christmas. I admit, I have not as yet read the User's Manual, but it has a whole heap of fun settings to play with. Here are the results for January....
I don't trust the seagull in the background.

Nothing says childhood nostalgia like dappled light and caravan parks.

The camp vase. Every good campsite needs one.

Bluebottles always make a stroll to the waters edge slightly nerve-racking.

Lunch at Rojo Rocket makes me want to move to Mexico, eat lots of guacamole and revel in intensely-coloured fabrics.

A ghostly evening in Sydney.

An evening at the Spiegeltent.

A moment.

Another moment.

Piggy buns at Chef's Gallery. Oink.


A sunlit spectacle at Mirazozo.

Kobe Jones Bento Box of Deliciousness.

And the month ends with Sufjan Stevens at the Opera House. Where balloons fall from the heavens. It's a little bit special.

* = I have great plans for 2011. Item # 15 on the list- Learn Spanish- is in progress.

Musical Monday

Today my heart is a little bit heavy.
My little sister flies away today to a faraway magical place called London. For an indefinite period. Boo.
Who will laugh at Monkeys on Dogs with me?

Enough with the sad sack stuff.
Here's something a bit more upbeat.

Travel safe, little sis.
