and she slept for a hundred years...

Above is a picture of the beautiful bougainvillea which envelopes the front of our house. I found it rather fitting as this last week this stunning, throned vine has suddenly burst into a blanket of magenta flowers. The comparisons between L's life and her favourite fairy tale "Sleeping Beauty" are wonderfully sweet and sickly at the moment.

For as of now her work as come to an end, she has emerged from a state of stress, a state of insomnia and too many things to do. She is finally able to look around, to be. She is finally able to sleep. She has, like the bougainvillea burst out of her oppressive cocoon.

So again like Aurora - the sleeping beauty, L has been spending the majority of the last week asleep or on the couch, hiding from the world and recuperating, Buster and I have gladly joined her as you can see below.

The week was also as usual littered with procrastination which lead to moaning and latter in the week, purchasing both books and apparel. It was also one of her oldest friends B’s birthday and they went out of a lovely dinner.

While shopping for B’s birthday treasures L came across an item than she fell head over heels in lust with, L was strong willed enough to say no and not purchase it, as she was looking for B and not for herself. But after staying at the forefront of her mind for a couple of days L relented and went back to the shop and adopted the stunning little thing. Stay tuned for pictures tomorrow, for now there is so very much to be caught up on in interweb land.

  1. Buster is looking like such a big boy.

    Is he still a vocal little kitty?
