Ratcat, SCUBA, buys

I've been a bad blogger. End of fin year, weekends being taken up with extreme adventurous activity and staring at Marcel have me spent!

You haven't missed much, I'm afraid I've been rather boring of late. 

Here's what I've been up to:

Seeing Ratcat on Saturday night. Safe to say Simon Day is still a mega-dish and I would have his babies. It was such a fun gig, even though I wasn't into them when Blind Love went mega (I was 11!) I felt 15 again. I am pretty sure I was the youngest person there and everyone was so polite and friendly. Some girl accosted me in the toilets telling me she'd been looking at my pants all night (!) and where did I get them from. When I told her they were Sass & Bide rats she just looked really confused. 

They sound amazing, except for their last song, a cover of I Think We're Alone Now which the singer from the cover band came on stage for. She was TERRIBLE and not just because she was dancing all over Simon. Totally out of time and just too into herself to care that the audience were not there for her!  Mr CB put it more bluntly than I ever could by saying she is everything he hates about the Inner West. Harsh but fair.  Refreshing that they refused to do an encore, just said they needed a break because they were old and would be back in a minute! I've seen so many bands doing 'comebacks' or 'reunions' lately but these guys were clearly there for the love of it. Not money hungry, no band bust-ups, no drug problems. 
Red lips for Simon. They were actually really red in real life. 

On the weekend Mags and I FINALLY finished out SCUBA course. It was freezing, some of the people were so annoying and did not listen to anything, we didn't see any turtles,  Camp Cove is filthy dirty disgusting underwater, but we did it. Cannot wait to go diving in warm weather, where there are cool animals.

Mr CB and I snuck in a lunch at Jasmin in Bankstown. For those times when you just want a massive, garlicy feast there is no better place. $17 for a mixed plate two people can't finish. Amazing. Absolutely one of my favourite all time eats. The pic is from the Lebanese sweets cafe next door. I am always too excited, then very quickly too full to take photos of the actual food. Tip: go there at lunch time. You need at least 5 hours of digesting to feel human again. 

I bought a few things. Am not that fussed on them. Maybe because I can't really wear them yet. 
Top to bottom:
Stella McCartney for Target dress. Old range, wanted it for ages, $16 inc postage from ebay.
Kaftan arrangement thingy for Greece from the Samvara sale
Magali Pascal beaded tunic top from the Samvara sale. Plan on wearing this with rats and big boots to a hens on the weekend. 

I also bought some black moccasiny style ankle boots at the Samvara sale. Don't know what it is about that sale that always makes me buy things that are so not me. But somehow love.
