Sutra: Christmas

So this was my Christmas!
No food photos because I am always way too busy eating to take pictures of what it is we are eating! But it was all delicious and amazing! Everything just seems to taste better on Christmas day than any other day!

When we arrived at the shack on Christmas eve the wind was up, so John rigged up the windsurfer to go and have a good old crack at something he has not done in about 2 years due to house building taking priority! It's something he really loves and is very good at actually! But he had some pretty sore muscles the next day!

Looking good out there! In the bay gliding over the water!

As my partcipation in Christmas lunch, I provided Sangria (copious amounts) and truffles. What did we all learn from this experience? Don't let me make the truffles! They were the size of golf balls! Delicious, but huge! Also extremely not good looking! Oops!

Here we are being super gooses! With the hats and streamers!

This cracker guy climbed the truffle. It was a hard slog, but he made the peak that day.

Good bye you beatiful place you! I will miss you 100% until the next time!

But on the other hand maybe we will have a good snow season this year!

Sutra: Oh Yesterday

Feeling very meloncholy and cos this is my blog I am sharing... Yesterday, 4 years ago, one of my favourite people in the world died. A nice kid, only 18. He was loved by so many people and is still missed daily by many.

I love you and I miss you. The world needs more nice guys like you! Normal kids with problems just like anyone else. Boys who love their family and let their cousins pluck their mono brow. Who bake cupcakes and go swimming in the rain. An amazing person and a friend.

Then today 4 years ago, I graduated. It was a less than joyous occasion.

That's all I got for today.
Other than to tell you: the weekend starts here!

Sutra: So Shiny!

One of my jobs in this enterprise was to pick all the fittings. Apparently I like chrome! We ordered most of our stuff from If I had my time again I probably wouldnt use Reece. We will be getting out final little things like towel rails etc from Robert Ferguson in Launceston. When we ordered from them they had our stuff in after only about a week and they were so easy to deal with and gave us a call as soon as we could come in and collect our stuff. Reece on the other hand... Well we waited about 3 weeks and didnt hear anything from them. When we called we found out that they actually had most of our order, but no one had notified us. They were also missing a few things. Then we have been waiting another week or 2 and had to call them again to see if the rest was in and they didn't even know what we were still waiting on! So I had to check our quote against what we actually had and email them to say what we were missing. So, yeah. Annoying! I am happy with the stuff i got from them, it's all just lovely, but i am annoyed at having to constantly chase them!

Our shower rail is a nikles shower rail from It's so shiny! It has a great flat head which has a mirror surface on the back, which is good so I can check for mascara residue!
The taps for our bath and basins are from the Phoenix - Kubus range also from I love the squareness of them! Very much like our house!
A Mizu 1700 Gooseneck tap for the kitchen, also from is what we have for our kitchen. It's soooo pretty! I can't wait to start using all my nice stuff!
Mizu kitchen sink. Its a sink. I dont really like the draining racks in most sinks so this one has a nice neat and minimal draining rack.
This one is a little different, its a Vitra - Piu Due squarer bowl basin from unfortunately I don't think they carry this basin anymore. It's huge! Which is good so I dont splash water everywhere... Or thats the plan anyway.
These are our main light fittings. They are called Surf lights and we got them from which is located in Hobart, Tasmania. They are just gorgeous on the wall, very simple but they light beautifully! I really didnt want ceiling lights or down lights. Down lights are a little overdone nowadays and use a fair bit of power and ceiling lights are a bit boring! So wall lights it is!

So there you go. These are the fittings we have and they are lovely!
It's ok to be jealous.
