:: my niece amelia's third birthday party this weekend ::
:: thrift shopping in bendigo tomorrow ::
:: visiting bendigo wollen mills and buying delciously cheap bags of wool stuffing ::
:: old fashioned christmas tunes playing ::
:: two of my wonderful friends presenting me with a late birthday present, Handmade in Melbourne, a beautiful book i've been coveting since it came out a few weeks ago ::
:: plans for a full day of christmas baking next sunday ::
:: an upcoming week-long vacation in sydney (only 10 more work days left!) ::
on that note, if anyone has any suggestions of things to do while we're in sydney, please let me know. i definitely plan on visiting kinokuniya to pick up some new japanese craft books but any other shopping tips, beaches we should visit for tidepools, fishing, snorkeling or boogie boarding, day trips (we'll have our car there), etc, would be much appreciated!
