Spot the holidaymaker

My hair is messy, I haven't had a shower, I have had heaps and heaps of cups of tea.

Right! I'm the one on holidays.

It's so funny that the first whiff of a day off I don't know what else to do but revert back to when I was 14 years old wearing pyjamas and lounging about. I guess the difference now is that even though I've been mooching around on the couch these past 2 days, I've crocheted like mad, hung out with the dog and attempted to get our finances in order (we're refinancing at the moment and even though there are BIG things lined up for next year, I'm not fussed! It's going to work out!) and feel generally on top of things. So it's like lounge activity. Lounging about on holidays but working on things.

Anyways, I've seriously just loved this space of hibernation. I've only left the house once in 2 days and that was for a takeaway laksa! It's really hot today, so I've put off going back to work to 'pack up' til tomorrow after the cool change comes through 'cause I didn't want to leave Doggie Darling here in the heat.

But, I wanted to show you my party dress:

Looks like too much partying if you ask me, but still cute in the dress department. It's like a lot of my other tshirt dresses in style, but I added the ruffle sleeves cause it was a party after all. THE best Christmas Party our work has ever had mind you!

I'm contemplating making up more of these and swinging past the local markets on Saturday... you can get a free stall apparently, if you get there early... NOT SURE!


Thanks for being awesome and a total darling, leave a message!
