Hello Sunday afternoon. I see you and it’s ok. It’s been a top weekend and I’m feeling a little refreshed and ready for the week ahead. Quite A LOT different from last weekend.
The weather gods have blessed my part of the world this weekend. There hasn’t been such blessings in while so was a lovely treat to be able to entertain outside. Champagne tastes so much better outside. Really. It. Does.
We turned our little courtyard into a place to chill before and after dinner with some gorgeous friends, pretended like we were contestants on My Kitchen Rules, complete with kitchen bickering and last-minute menu changes because I forgot to buy one of the essential ingredients and generally wondered why we didn’t do this more often.
Recovery this morning was at our local beach and it was a cracker – the best beach day we’ve had since January.
We arrived home to news that Whitney Houston had died. It makes me sad when I hear news like this. Not because I knew or loved the person, more because they were someone whose music took you straight back to a different time. And for me, Whitney was my nightclub dance partner in the mid-to-late-80s. I was barely of clubbing age, with a teased-up fringe full of hairspray (there may or may not have been a scrunchie involved) wearing a pencil skirt, shirt and kitten heels to Rosie’s in Brisbane on a Wednesday night. Whenever this song came on, it was dance-around-your-handbag time. Nobody could stop me. Somebody probably should have.
What was your favourite Whitney song? And what has been GREAT about your weekend?
PS. This post has got a lot of people talking. I wrote it last week as I was filling out yet another form for school and felt like I had to submit a family tree to try and explain all the various names coming from the one family. Turns out I’m not alone. Lot’s of people have name stories – with each comment coming in, I was starting to feel more normal. Would love to know your name story.
PPS. I offered up my Accessorising 101 advice on Justb. yesterday if you’re looking to add a little lift to your everyday outfits.
