Last night, New Year's Eve Eve. The last Sunday of the year and we spent it in bed watching the Big Bang Theory and eating ice cream with Milo.
Tonight we'll be having dinner in the city and then trying to find a good spot to watch the fireworks from. There will be glow sticks, of course. I hope you have fun whatever you're doing and I'll see you in the new year.
Over and out for 2012!

Since we are in Sydney we decided to drop in on Seamus' sister who is working at Ikea over the holidays. I hadn't been for ages and I wanted to look at all the little cute apartment set-ups and cheap crap! I ended up just buying a hanging plant holder and a candle though.... there are a lot of cute/silly things to look at but I decided I didn't need to buy them to appreciate them ;-)
Do you like going to Ikea?

I hope you guys all had an awesome Christmas and holiday break! I have been pretty busy going to lots of different gatherings with family and neighbours so I am happy to just be chilling out in Sydney for a few days now. We haven't decided what to do for New Years yet, I think I'd like to stay in Sydney since I've never been here for NYE before.
This is the tree we put up in Seamus' room and the stockings and Christmas lunch table at my parents' house. The kangaroo was sitting in for my brother since he is in London. My Mum dressed it up in his clothes and we kept tripping over its tail which was sticking out the back! We normally have a big Christmas lunch instead of dinner, and a lot of Australians do seafood instead of turkey since it's so hot to be using the oven. But actually we had a really cold Christmas Day and I was kicking myself for not bringing a cute Christmas jumper to wear.
Regardless of the cool weather I still had a good day with my parents' eating lamingtons, gingerbread, chocolate, croissants, lamb chops, sausages and little bread rolls fresh from the oven. I hope you had a nice day with your families too and maybe even got some fun presents too!

You are probably getting bored of my trips to the Cotter but where else am I supposed to go when it's so freaking hot? This is me in the doorway of my share house just before we left. I hope you're all ready for Christmas, I have nearly all my wrapping done :)

I really need to take some more photos to blog! I have been in Sydney for the past few days and even though I had plenty of time I was too lazy and didn't take any. So for now I'll share this one taken a couple of months ago to sympathise with you guys in the Northern Hemisphere who are feeling the cold right now. Down here it's been up and down but yesterday was super hot and I spent the whole day in the pool.
Hope you are having a good week and are nearly finished getting ready for Xmas!

Some of the things I will be wearing this Summer, hopefully to the beach! I'm in Sydney this weekend doing a few family things and I'm visiting my friend in Bondi today, so excited! I hope you have an awesome weekend planned too.

Last night I had nachos in the city and then went to see Celeste and Jesse Forever, it's a really cute movie if you haven't seen it yet. I'm wearing the new waffle weave jumper I bought yesterday for $5! I just love anything waffle weave and this one is all cotton and super soft and snuggly for the movies (I also bring my blanket sometimes!).

These were taken last weekend but this weekend was pretty similar. Just went to Costco yesterday to stock up on some groceries and of course eat a massive slice of cheese pizza, and went swimming at the Cotter today. I hope you had a relaxing weekend too and are pumped for the week ahead!
