sometimes i've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast...

Today consisted of L running out the door and into town wearing socks. Shoes in hand - the poor thing thought she could walk quicker that way seeing she was a tad late for meeting Miss K. There was many an odd stare from little old ladies as she skipped though china town, shoeless.

L and Miss K were off for a roam around the art gallery to see what was on show. And boy were they pleased, the Year 12 Perspectives exhibition was on as well as a superb display, REMIX, a showcase of talented WA artists all from very different backgrounds, ages and experiences. It was wonderful to see some West Australian work for a change and it was all new and fresh and wondrous to look at.  If you have the chance and live in Perth definitely go and have a gaze for yourself.

Unfortunately L was not allowed to take photos in the gallery, which is odd as from her recollection of trips to other galleries over Australia photos were allowed, just no flash. Hmmmmmm.

After their cultural excursion they took some obligatory happy snaps outside in the community garden and then trekked to Macca’s for some “feel good” junk food.

Upon returning home Buster and I were treated to a play in the garden while she read until the sun went down. A lovely end to a lovely day.

its a plot...

Today was a bittersweet catch-up with the ever favourite Chowface! Im told they barley stopped to breathe as they caught up over the best coffee on Beaufort St, words and sentences ran together and their topics were vast and many. L is undoubtedly in a much better mood since she got her best friend hit.

It’s time for another super awesome girl pact challenge!!! (hopefully Ms Abby hasn’t forgotten) this week’s theme was NEON, particularly hard as L has less than zero neon items... instead we decided to be a little sneaky creative and chuck in some random images of neon signs.. Hope this still counts!

We've been wanting to wear this Camilla and Marc dress for a while and today we found the perfect way to dress it down. Bought for a ball a couple of years ago the poor thing has been sitting neglected in the clothes room screaming to be worn almost every day the last two weeks. It fits like a dream and is so very well made, and who doesn’t love a tule skirt!

L's old docs are another item that has been on heavy rotation this last week or two these beautiful 18 hollers have been a part of L's life since she was 16 and are perfectly worn in.

Regular readers of our little blog will know it’s certainly not often L wears flats but these may be making more than a few appearances over this coming winter!

the weather today is an increasing trend toward denial...

Just some quick photos for you tonight

wasted days...

Forcing ourselves to get back into the swing of blogging. Car breaking down and waiting in shopping centre car parks with heavily perishable items. Sleeping till 2pm cause the alarm didn’t "feel" like going off. Watching endless strings of late 90's teenage angst series. Procrastinating about cleaning the house. Bottomless cups of peppermint tea and homemade potato salad. Neon rope lights and plaid.

Warring cats and felines stealing crackers and pate. Midnight walks down moonlight streets. Refusing to brush hair. Trying to convince the humans to procure us a new kitten. Missing our best friend and pinning for human interaction. Stepping on tubes of glue and experimenting with new nail polish colours. Buster running around with packets of glitter in his mouth.

Finding new blogs and reading disturbing books. Researching weirdness and using the couch as a bed. Mourning the loss of super pink laptop. Drawing in the margins of cooking books for fun. Green eyes watching. Contemplating painting the cats claws bright colours. Have to wait till they're asleep. They never sleep.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Wine, wine, wine, wine and more wine. Finding chocolate love hearts everywhere. wandering around the house at 4am when dreams die. Dreams where I can taste, dreams where there is a 50 foot table of food to taste. Waking up hungry and soothing belly with peanut butter toast. Wasted days.

my so-called life... and other things...

Last night in an attempt to inspire some blogging L and the ever astonishing Abby decided to challenge each other. Their blog challenge had little to no rules just a
theme and a timeline. The post must be done today and the theme, pastels.

Silly L for picking this theme as she has very, very little pastel in her wardrobe.  The only things she could find were a baby pink wig (no idea how she got all her hair under that tiny wig!) and backpack and baby blue sass & bide jeans. Hence this odd combination today. 

Photobucket

It’s just a much uninspired time at the moment, thus the lack of posts. Days are spent wallowing and watching "My So-Called Life" Hope you enjoy these random snaps, and hopefully we’ll be back on track soon-ish. Thanks for bearing with us guys.

Photobucket

If you guys have any ideas for future challenges for L and Abby we'd love to hear them! don't be shy, speak up :P
