monday musings

i spent last week enjoying the beautiful heat wave sydney was experiencing, out in the sun as much as possible and it was a really great week. 
1. 2. & 3. the first three photos are taken at darook park in the southern suburbs, it's hidden away and a place only people from the shire would know. on a sunny day it can feel like paradise, with the tide getting so low that you can cross from one side of the bay to the other. my boyfriend says the photos remind him of our anniversary trip to vanuatu, with the crystal clear waters and fine sand, and nothing tops off a trip to darook like a yum chicken vietnamese roll.
4. i think you all know what this is! my birthday dress arrived on friday morning (thank you zimmermann express postage) and it's so beautiful. enough to bring tears to my eyes because i love it so much. it fits like a glove and the packaging it arrived in was gorgeous, a big white box with a bow and gorgeous white tissue! it definitely felt like an early birthday present for myself.
5. & 6. my grandad went into hospital for an operation on friday and of course we were all incredibly concerned, but all went well and he's speeding through the recovery phase even better than we expected. today was his birthday so our crazy gang went to visit him, and despite the pain he must've been in, the smile on his face says it all. he's such a big kid at heart (he adores ice cream) so we bought him the most incredible tiramisu ice cream cake from gelato messina - if you haven't been there, go ASAP. it's phenomenal.
7. my newest tech baby! i got my iphone 4s and i loooooooooove it. the camera is amazeballs and it's so speedy. i definitely needed the upgrade from my slow & dying iphone 3, so having this new one is making life much easier. and i have a love affair with siri.

hope everyone's been having a fabulous week and enjoying the summer sun! xx
