Although I had thought that she should be pregnant soon ;)

In hindsight, maybe I should've paid more attention to this pic, from 7th August:


Oh well, can't win them all!!!

On the other hand, I just can't get enough of....

pictures of Mary's twins!! You should have heard me oohing & ahhing when they came on the news tonight. Mr TPS looked at me with a bemused expression....

Then I found more pics & started all over again - they are just soooo super cute!!













Loving the dress in the 2nd pics :)

Sometimes, even my favourites let me down....

I really strongly dislike this coat on Mary - I think it makes her look huge!! I'd understand if she was 6 months pregnant with twins (I vaguely remember her wearing this coat at some point during the twins pregnancy) but she's not now. Sigh.

Change is as good as a holiday...

So after 11 weeks of 30 patients, rounding til 5 & trying to get jobs done in between, today was changeover & the first day of my surgical term.

What a change!!! This is known to be a bit of a cruisy term as far as surgery goes, and today was a nice laid-back start in which I spent most of the day in theatre. Only one page all day!!! And a nice team/bosses. Then finished at 4!! Awesome. It doesn't even bother me that tomorrow I will be working the evening shift!!

Currently in front of tv watching farmer wants a wife - I must admit I love this show! Have puggy snuggled up next to me (don't usually let him on the couch but naughty Mr TPS did) - and Mr TPS on the other side of him. After paying it out it's funny how he happens to venture out of the study when it's on to watch it!!

Last night was another tv night with the block & the new underbelly. I was a bit shocked about the lack of auction results although it does match the current market - and destroys the claims that the properties were deliberately undervalued for the reserves.

Loved the new underbelly - especially the fashion!!

Looking forward to another day at work tomorrow!

Or these.....

Lusting after...

Meanwhile, please convince me I don't need these... there's only one pair left in my size on shopbop

French Toast Sunday

Mr TPS & I headed out to our local shopping centre this morning for breakfast at our usual cafe & a massage. I had my usual French toast & coffee :)

Really needed the massage - we go to one because it's reasonably cheap but more because the beds are SUPER comfy!!

Bought a new set of soap holder & toothbrush holder from myer since the ones I bought not all that long ago are rusting - seriously who makes a bathroom product like that?! (They were myer also). Hoping this set lasts longer!!

Mr TPS headed off to see a movie with a friend so I hit forever new. Came away with:



Also got the same top in blue & cream stripes with navy blue bow :)

This is my first full post from my iPad!!! Today is day 6 of having it & I must say I'm loving it, glad I got this over a new laptop!!

Real estate Saturday

One of my favourite things to do on a Saturday is going to open houses. Have not done so for awhile since I've worked so many Saturdays at work this term... And since we are holding off buying I wonder what the point of looking is. But when Mr TPS suggested it this morning after we'd been out for breakfast & to the tailor I couldn't say no! Of course I had some properties bookmarked & ready to go...

First up was a house I discovered on the domain app (iPhone) whilst at the cafe. This needed a LOT of work but had the potential to extend out the back - and that outlook is to die for:












Today turned out to be it's first open house so will be interesting to see what it gets priced at.

Second up we looked at one I blogged about the other weekend when I was on-call:



I actually liked this much more than I thought I would! This was very Mr TPS & I. That front garden is bigger than this picture & the front has this lovely well-established hedge which makes it nice & private. This is going to auction next Saturday.

Finally, a home I've liked from the front for ages, out of our price range but I couldn't resist checking it out. We just made the open house today, and I loved it. Again quite a small backyard but the pool was divine and the front garden was large & again fenced.










At least Mr TPS & I decided we both liked the carpet enough in this house to consider getting something similar for our current apartment :)
