Loving gardening doesn't mean you are getting old

Right, right??

I am loving my garden sick at the moment. Apart from the caterpillars. Your days are numbered.
Can you see the yellow lady beetle? (If that's what they are called?)

Don't they coordinate nicely with the yellow zucchini?

Tomatoes. I can't really talk about them at the moment because they are being eaten by caterpillars. Game on moles.

Thanks you weather!

What a glorious Sydney day. Honestly there is just no comparison to the days we get like this.
Apart from living in Hawaii where they have an ozone layer, this is pretty tops.

This morning I was facebook-browse-stalking when I came across some snaps from an ex-friends holiday in Fiji. It was a timely reminder to always wear sunscreen and a hat, since man she is looking old!

Had my hair done on Thursday, had a lot darker foils put through, especially around my hairline which means extra weeks out of my colour. Love love love the colour but it has mega faded on first wash. I don't think brunetteism is in my near future. It has grown so so much.
When we got back from overseas last year I had a mega chop and it was really short, choppy and couldn't get it behind my ears. Today I have it all up in a high bun. Craziness.

Almost a year of marriage

Can you believe it? I can't. Tuesday I have been married for a year. A year has gone by since that awesome day in Vegas. Crazy.

It took me a while to think of something 'paper' related for Mr CB but I got him tickets for the Lemonheads playing 'It's a Shame About Ray' in full. I think he will be pretty stoked. I will be pretty stoked if he didn't even realise they were playing, which I think he hasn't.

Mummy CB left this morning, it was so lovely to have her staying with us even if the circumstances for her visit were awful. I miss being able to have a coffee with my Mum any time. We sure did our best to make up for lost time though, I think Mario was sick of the sight of us!

Cudo, horses and the Greece

Have you checked out Cudo yet? I know it's a pain in the num to have to sign up to but the deals are amazing! In the last week or so I have bought vouchers for:
  • a 5 course banquet for two including a bottle of wine from Tokonoma for $99 (!!!)
  • 12 gourmet cupcakes from Ghermez at Bondi for $12, and today
  • a $4 take home box from Cold Rock
yes, this is encouraging unnecessary purchasing, but in the best possible way. 

Tomorrow is horses day. Meeting in the morning then off to the pub for a 'work' lunch. Tough life. If only I wasn't chairing a day full of meetings on Wednesday I would take full advantage. Oh, maturity. 
My money will probably be on Descarado. Betting on So You Think would be boring, right?

My leave for the Greece (as Billy is calling it) was approved today. Party! Slightly longer than I actually have in AL and slightly earlier than I initially told my boss I was leaving but approved nonetheless. 
Will book tomorrow after Mr CB confirms his leave, likely with Singapore who are reasonably priced and have good connections. Note to Etihad: a 9 hour wait in Abu Dabhi from midnight- 9am is not desirable!
