Home Sweet Home

My first weekend home was a lot of fun.

I went straight from the airport to Pete's to eat some Castle/Volcano Dip, then out to karaoke at the King's Head. I felt pretty rubbish until I remembered there was a V in my bag, and after that it was a pretty fun night.

I do not sing, except for big group numbers (this time it was All The Small Things), but I love listening to the other people and cheering.

The next morning I went for a cruise in Jim's dad's new car (Renault Megane coupe-cabriolet) and had breakfast at Cronulla. 

We went to Sealevel but it was less than $40 for the two of us, cheaper than a lot of other cafes and miles nicer.

Then I went to Book Club! Our book was The Bell Jar which annoyingly I could not find, but I am reading it now and loving it. Well done Sylvia.

I wore sequins for day FYI. It was fun to put on something other than one of the 5 outfits I packed for Melbourne.

The food was great! Thanks ladies! The best parts were a) Elise serving tonic to drink and b) Elise asking if anyone wanted gin in it. Of course!!


  1. This year is the 50th since Sylvia's death... so sad. Here is an article I recently read and enjoyed, a few women's views and opinions on the book, really cool to see the impact she had and still has on women of all ages:


    1. I can't believe I only just got around to following that link and unfortunately I only had time to read half of it at the moment, but thank you so much for sharing it, that is a brilliant article! Can't wait to finish it!
