Target & a massage...

Yesterday I THANKFULLY had a day off. I really needed it. Caught up on a few errands... did some shopping (the fun kind as well as the food kind)... and got a massage. Got a bit of cleaning done & cooked roast lamb for dinner...

Inspired by all the recent blog posts about Target (esp Sydney Shop Girl) I decided to head in-store yesterday. I used to LOVE Target, but find that I either like heaps of things or nothing at all....
Fortunately (or unfortunately for my credit card) yesterday I liked heaps of things... I was totally won over with the prices - everything seemed to be on sale! :) Ended up with 4 varied knit cardis, a knit dress, a jersey-type of dress (with belt), a knit skirt, 3 basic tops and a pair of trackies! Oh & some cute winter socks for wearing at home... And a new lampshade for the lounge for $5.82!! Will try to post pics tomorrow.

Work has really been getting me down lately, not loving my job all that much currently... so today I thought I should look for something each day to be grateful for... (so Pollyanna, but anyway...) and/or something that made me happy/smile....

Today I am grateful that the rain held off whilst I was walking into work & out again to the car tonight (I hate walking in the rain!)....

And we ended up with a new patient who used to live next to my grandmother. She made me smile when she asked when she could go home & told me that there were a lot of patients in hospital. She has some sort of developmental delay (although is a very good age now!!!) and my mum used to take her presents at special times of the year such as Easter & Xmas - we weren't sure if she had any family. She always used to tell us where my grandmother was if she wasn't around :)

My husband has a friend over tonight so I'm enjoying blogging from the bedroom with the heater up high... going to catch up on reading some chick lit before getting to sleep :)

Swimwear!!

I've been lusting after this since last Summer - been watching it online.... waiting for the price to come down.



Finally bought it online today, for $118!! :) Will be taking it to US in November with me - with the hope we'll get some swimming/water parking in at Disney World!!

Winter

Have decided to start a blog....

Today really feels like winter in Sydney, was rainy & cold! Mr PS & I went for brunch this morning - I had yummy french toast with banana, strawberry & maple syrup xxx

Have Boeuf Bourguignon slow cooking on the stove at the moment - it ended up making such a big batch I had to put some into a smaller pot to fit it all! Love winter cooking - so easy!

Unlike most of Australia I am working tomorrow... sigh.
