well happy Monday everyone! (ugh that sentence just doesnt sound right! happy? on a Monday? noo! haha)

how was everyones weekend? Mine was pretty great. kinda quiet, but in a nice way. the end of last week was a little bit of a blur. I had Thursday off sick from work. although i wasnt technically sick, i had had a sore throat for a few days, and woke up with a migrane Thursday morning. on what is kinda a 'nothing' day for me (both bosses werent going to be around), i felt that i could take a personal day to ease my head and throat. and it worked wonderfully! i slept in til just after 12pm!! and spent the rest of the day on the couch watching old eps of gossip girl. wonderful afternoon. got over my headache and my sore throat disappeared too so win win!

Friday wasnt great at work. got the news that my managers father had passed away the night before. which was very sad to hear. he had been sick with cancer for quite some time, so while it wasnt a shock, it still wasnt the best news obviously. So after a bit of a crappy day, I was really looking forward to Friday night! H, Z and I all headed out to our fav spot, Mint, as we do on Friday's because they play all the classics from the late 80's thru to the 90s (hello Hanson!!) We hadnt been since R moved to London, so we were all looking forward to it! and it was a great night. so much fun dancing and laughing the night away together.

excuse Z's drunk face! in the interest of saving money, i did the sensible/boring thing and drove. So only had a couple of drinks, but we still had a blast regardless. we all did agree by the end of the night that we're getting a bit old for all nighters, so we left just after 12am. I had a big drive ahead of me on Saturday anyways, so needed some sleep!

So yeah, Saturday morning, quite early for us (8am!) we got up and left for Collie. its only a 2 hour drive south, but sometimes it  feels like forever! lucky for me, DPants drove the whole way! whoop whoop! it was a nice weekend with my parents and my sister. Little bro was away on a camp for the weekend, but i got to see him for like 2 mins as we were leaving, so thats something. Mum and dad are in the process of renovating their kitchen at the moment, so the house was a bit of a construction site. mums having a bit of 'fun' coming up with things that can either be cooked in an electric frypan, or on a camping stove. and everything is outside, fridge, cupboards, everything. lucky they did this during summer!

 the remains of what was once mums kitchen. we've lived in that house for 20 years, and have slowly renovated quite alot of it. so the kitchen was next. that lovely brickwork in the second pic is the remains of what would have been the original stove/fire from when the house was built. mum and dad didnt even know it was there, there was another fire built right over the top of it!

the view as you walk in the front door. that is our sitting room that used to be a massive games room. they divided it into a sitting room and behind that wall there is a 'carers' room. a small bedroom thats connected to my little brothers room for when support workers stay over night to care for him.

cant wait for the kitchen to be finished! its going to look so great. and after all this time, mum is FINALLY getting a dishwasher! bit unfair that she gets it now we've all moved out, haha, but finally!

the rest of the weekend was pretty good. we had family friends come over for drinks on Saturday night to celebrate mums birthday that was during the week. and sunday was spent visiting my grand parents and  visit from this little munchkin :)

haha classy pose Riley!! your mum (http://www.2-jaded.blogspot.com/) must be so proud! hahahahahahaha

all in all a good weekend.

Oh and in other news, we finally got all our paperwork for our holiday to Bali that we've booked for our anniversary in April! so excited. itll be our 2 year anniversary, but we've never been on a holiday just the two of us! we live together, so i know we'll be fne, but its still exciting! plus DMan hasnt been to Bali before, so i cant wait to show him around!

Happy Holidays indeed!

aaaannnnddd..... I got a hair cut! a dramatic one! well ok, not super dramatic, but ive been wearing my hair long (very long) for about 4 years now, and ive had it cut to just above my shoulders! eeep! i needed a change though. my hair was getting very scraggly and unhealthy, so it had to be done. looks super healthier already.

not the best pics im afraid. i took these at my desk at work, so the lighting is all funny. but you get the jist of it. i still dont love it yet, i feel its a bit boring or something, but maybe once i have a play around with it and learn how i can style it, ill feel better about it.

Happy Monday! (well its Tuesday, but since I started typing this on Monday, and intended to post it last night before i fell asleep on the couch, Im just going to pretend its still Monday!)
