7 days



It's been very flat around here after the sad passing of David's father
J has been sick with a terrible flu and ear infection, so we've been hanging close to home most days.
Today provided magnificent weather so we spent a few hours soaking up the sunshine at Terrigal, enjoying a hearty winter lunch. I think it was just what we needed.

I've been spending time at home helping my Mum and Dad with their renovation plans. So far we have nutted out the bathroom and kitchen layouts via email and one mammoth four hour phone call!. We went to visit A in her new apartment last week and I realised that the space-saving solution to the location of Mum & Dad's microwave was in one of the snaps I had taken! Serendipity!

I have to make a decision this week about our kitchen benchtop material too. I've scored a Honed Carrara Marble benchtop. It will cost $500 for re-polishing and re-cutting new sink holes only. It's not the most beautiful piece of marble nor the extra big size I was planning but at this low cost, I'm VERY tempted! Thoughts?

Snapped (LOL) up the toothy croc skull from Harold's Curiosity Cabinet. L.O.V.E! 
 And updated J's bed linen, yet again! I think this is my fave so far... 
I tried my hand at concocting a recipe-less, retrolicious Nachos too and it was yummy! So pleased with myself!

In housey news....the main bathroom vanity is in! I'm thrilled with my choice of white for the top (Ceasarstone Snow) and cabinet (Dulux White on White - satin finish) and also my last minute decision to delete the second bowl to allow greater storage both on and under the bench. The mirrors have been ordered too so we are now close to finishing this room. Hooray!


My blog make-over is just about complete I think....any suggestions are always welcome!
Unfortunately I 'lost' my blog roll so if you're missing let me know so I can add you back!

Looking forward to your comments about the benchtop!
