Date Week


This week has been quite eventful so far. After my work Christmas party on Sunday evening, Luke & I stayed in bed most of the day and left our little bat cave in the early afternoon. Just in time to have afternoon coffees and a late lunch at one of our favourite cafes, which also happens to be a two minute walk from our house! Two Birds Gallery makes the most amazing cappuccino, and these dandy lentil burgers that make any mood a happy one. After our lunch date, we went to the movies to watch the third Twilight movie while it was still showing here. I've only just started to show an interest in the Twilight stories, and I'm still not convinced. Like, they're entertaining and Edward is the biggest babe, but.. I don't know. Its kind of like my interest for Miley Cyrus, fleeting & seasonal. Afterwards we came home and finally got around to unpacking our new bed sides (that arrived Friday). I'd put off unpacking them because I couldn't bare the thought of having them sit next to our bed without any lamps. So after they were unpacked, we quickly ran to the shops and bought some super cute ceramic lamps. I'm going to post pictures later because they're too cute not to!


On Tuesday I wanted to sleep in (again, I know!) and start a new illustration, but my Mum called me and invited me over for a lunch date to make rum balls and have coffee and toasted sandwiches. So, thats what I did on Tuesday! My favourite part about Christmas, besides getting to spend time with my family, is rum balls & my Granny's home made mayo! Girlfriend knows how to make a good sandwich sauce! It's usually this time of the year that the rum balls start rolling in! 

I hope everybody is having a great little week!
