Back to work and right into it!!! My first road trip of the year and I n e e d e d my c o f f e e!! The problem though with having coffee in a giant mug, is that when you need to drive 2 1/2 hrs to get to the first meeting, and you leave home late (stupid) when you then need to stop and pee you are angry and stressed. Yup silly me, next time I will factor in a rest break... maybe
This beautiful tree on our block looks magical when the sun shines through the leaves. I adore sitting in our old faded outdoor chairs and looking up into the canopy of this tree.
This tree I dislike immensely most of the year, due to the fact it is very spiky! But when it is in flower the butterflies flock to these trees and they are so calming to watch flitting about from flower to flower. Butterflies are terribly lovely.
This my dears is what it looks like when you have just poured nearly 10 cubic metres of concrete to create a slab! Yay for us the first step in the building process is well underway! This weekend we have started to create the wall structure. Well J has, I supervise mostly... Or swing in the tissu's.

This is what I took part in on Saturday. For those of you who do not recognise this business, this is what is otherwise known as 'Pouring a Slab'.
This is in fact the slab for our very own shed, as we do not need a slab for the house. I am glad this task is out of the way, now comes the fun work of actually building said shed...
I have found I am much better as a general staying out of the way supervisor rather then a helper... Though I did hold a shovel for a time and endeavour to assist. I am so grateful that some of my family came to aid us in our time of need. Otherwise it may have taken several hours more!

Wow massive hiatus. not that it matters particularly. This is no life or death blog. Work has been keeping me busy as i work in tourism, so when summer comes so do the tourists. Being that not only are there more tourists anyway, but our particular attraction is most attractive also helps.

Anyway, so I have been doing a bit of online shopping lately. Victorias Secret and Decormyeyes. I got these beautiful Burberry sunnies off Decormyeyes after my sister got some Bvlgari ones which turned out to be such a great buy.
I get a little VS crazy every now and then. Usually whenever they send me a catalog... Anyhoodle, I ended up getting some work pants, t-shirts, bras, undies and beauty stuff. Cant wait for it all to arrive. I am always so impressed with the quality of their stuff. Actually do you know what. I may have blogged about this previously. Have I?

Ok well off to search online for some bridesmaid shoes for a wedding I will be in soon. Wish me luck and if you can recommend a place to find off white slightly strappy satin-y shoes then let me know!
