It is a gorgeous day, and I spent a lovely time at a festival in Mt Vic, and ate something that gave me a spell of feeling like death. I'm on the mend now, but eek, moments like that make me determined to stay healthy forever, because illness is AWFUL.

A particular source of inspiration is the divine Rachel McAlpine, a former neighbour of ours, who we have reconnected with since having the shop in Mt Vic. Read her rules for looking young, they're brilliant and applicable to all ages. I particularly love:
5. Hitch up your tits, whether they're beanbags or hackysacks. Wear decent, properly fitted bras.

Rooting for Mrs Brown!

Heh heh, I said "rooting".

But I am. I'm rooting for the divine Karen Brown, a contestant on New Zealand's Hottest Home Baker now showing on TV3, because seriously, she is awesome. I met Karen at my shop, and I believe she has everything it takes (skillz, looks, charm, awesomeness) to win this competition.

Go Karen GO!

Whew, with the previous blissed out, moony post I broke the, erm, dumb brain, I broke the period-of-non-bloggingness (the only word springing to mind was "hymen", and I'm way too classy to write that on the internet.

Anyhow, not that this is a shop blog, but I thought I'd share here, we're having a sale at the moment, and all our beautiful Saben bags are marked down 25% to make way for the next lot of beautiful Saben bags.

And in Petone, all the adult clothing is marked down by 25 % too.

Peace and quiet

Weird. I'm on the couch, Lucy is asleep, the boys are back at school. There is an order I should be packing, but I've done the invoice up, and I'll pull it together later. The house is quite tidy, because we had art group yesterday. For art group I made Pull-Apart Orange Rolls, you really should try them, them absolutely amazing, and quite easy to make. Radio NZ is streaming through the laptop.

It is so nice.

And that is all.
