My week (in brackets)
Been knitting at nights (jumper for Mack), and working all week (my best friend Judy came home unscathed from two weeks in Bali, only to get the world's worst stomach bug when she got home, so I filled in for her), and tweaking the blogging on the other blog (it's getting there — details later ... ), and went to see Samson and Delilah (shattering) with best friend Karen yesterday (so no pics from the hood this week), after lunch on Oxford Street (OMG how exy is Perth? "Have to remember, Mum," as Lily says, that "while we were away, everybody in Perth became seriously wealthy with the boom.")
Long phone call from Lily yesterday arvo while I was in the car on the way home from Karen's, so I had to stop driving and park so I could talk to my girl. She was soaking in the bath at a very posh new hotel-cum-resort in Broome after driving there for seven days through the remote North-West, all the way from Kununurra. Can't wait to have her and Nick home again (after another week).
Birthday party this arvo for my best friend Laura (yay!), followed by dinner and bridge with my best friend Dace and her sister-in-law, who makes the universe's bestest-ever vanilla slices. That are, in fact, so transcendentally good that they really ought to be called something else. I will take a pic to show you! 
So very, very good to be back among loved ones.

It is unbelievably good to have you home - how DID I survive while you were away?

I had a lovely party this avo - thanks so much for coming!!!!

You've obviously been flat out this week!

I thought Samson and Delilah was shattering as well, but so well done.

Karen said...

So happy to be counted amongst your best friends - happy birthday, Laura, and hi Judy and Dace!

The jumper looks wonderful, but it can't beat a vanilla slice. Especially one deemed to be the best in the world.

You are making me homesick again. I was born on Oxfor Street and lived there until I was 6. All those eateries along there look so trendy and I agree, some are mighty exxie! Sounds like you had a great time though and are glad to be home. Hugs from me
