So strange to write that! Time flies and time flies faster than ever it seems.
Had a great 'break' even though I was working throughout. Lucky it was so quiet and I got to go out for breakfast with my man every day, hang out at the beach a LOT (the water has finally warmed above 15deg, yay), read a lot of mags and papers and watch a lot of TV series on DVD.
We got through nearly all of our Bali DVDs and I even managed to get my husband as addicted to Gossip Girl as I was. I'm sooooo glad I have been so lazy in watching it because there is no way I could have waited over their break to see what happens to Chuck. "I'm Chuck Bass." Bless.
Christmas was great, we had such a cruisy day. Lunch went really well, the food was beautiful (if i do say so myself) and everyone got to have a relaxing day. We did pretty good for our first biggish thing at our place methinks.
My lovely husband bought me Karen Walker jewellery- peace sign stud earrings and a necklace with a heart with an arrow through it, well done! He also got me a Tom Ford lipstick, which I am so rapt with that I cannot bear to use it and ruin the beautiful 'TF.' I am so lucky to have him and can just imagine him standing at the DJs counter picking out a colour for me!

NYE was really quiet, we just hung out in our old backyard with out old neighbours. Mr CB managed to pour 2 bottles of the Moet we had bought for others and I barely had a glass out of each. Sometimes his generosity is frustrating! I left before even midnight, just wasn't in the mood, but I never am on NYE.
Though it was really hot it wasn't unbearable and I had such a great day hanging out with friends and just cruising around. I got a new The Rapture tshirt which I am in love with and Mr CB added to his Public Enemy tshirt collection.
I was extremely proud of myself for being in ready-to-fire form for NYD and we got to Field Day nice and early. Soooo much has improved since I last went. Heaps more bars, actual shade, places to rest my wear old lady legs.

Going there with such low expectations meant I had such a good time, even though there was a clash of three of the main acts I wanted to see. Marina and the Diamonds lost out to The Rapture, because as we decided, seeing them is a life choice, not a decision. Or something.
They are always so entertaining beyond imagine and never disappoint. I for some bizarre reason thought the singer had left but of course I was wrong. And the cowbell was like its own band member!
|Flava Flav. So amazing.|
Mr CB was mainly (only) there for Public Enemy and he barely got up from our awesome seated spot before them. But they were worth going for alone. Amazing. I can't even think/ don't want to know how old they are, because they put acts half their age to shame. They got the crowd worked up like no other act I have ever seen, despite 99% of the kids going to see Justice on the main stage.
