If I was a Flower Growin’ Wild and Free


Most Saturdays Andrew will go for a mountain bike ride, and on his way home he’ll pick up Nandos and a bunch a flowers.
(What a catch, right?)

On the odd occasion this doesn’t happen, I’m quiet happy to take a stroll down to Lee’s Bonsai World.
They have the most incredible bonsai trees throughout the store, in all sorts of shapes and sizes, but what draws me in are the fresh flowers on display.


I chose dendrobiums this time around, because LOOK at that colour!
Taking them up to the counter, I always get asked “Are these for a present, or for you?”.


And I reply, with a beaming smile “for me!”;
because it’s a pretty nice feeling, buying flowers for yourself.

Now… go and buy¬†yourself a bunch!


Hanbel, the Weekend Edition

Spring is settling in, and it’s making me a very happy girl. I got to pull my bike out again, enjoy the sun setting a little later and make the most carefree days.

This was my weekend.


I bought this bad boy on friday, the Canon S120. A lot of time was spent playing around with it.


Lowdown put a shout on facebook to come and check out their new space on Friday night, share a bevvy and some banter.


On Saturday I watched my amazing girls Brooke and Lucy (from Luce’s Eternal Sunshine) play in their Grand Final for netball. Sadly, they didn’t win, but played as best they could. I still feel like a proud mamma!


I treated myself to some flowers, at $8 … how could you not?


Andrew and I rode our bikes to Maylands for a drink at Swallow Bar


Followed by dinner and the most amazing Quinoa Chocolate cake at Chapels on Whatley.


Sunday brekky with the girls, at The Ladder in Mt Hawthorn. Good, not great. I wouldn’t rush back if I’m honest.


Lucy and I hopped on our bikes in the afternooon, and rode to Brooke’s place for balcony wine time, plenty of snacks and so many laughs with the rest of the girls.


I rode home solo (Lucy hung around for pizza) so I could spend a little time with Andrew before kick-starting a new week!
I went to sleep early, feeling exhausted but very, very happy.

What did you get up to? x
