Reality Beckons

So I'm now at the end of my holiday... (sob, sigh) I'm going back to work on Monday.

This week has gone so fast though, but its been good. I've organised a few more things for the wedding - got my shoes... absolutely gorgeous strappy silver heels - they're a lot higher than I'm used to though, so I've been walking around the house trying to practise. Dont want to be stumbling down the aisle now, do we!!?

We've also chosen my wedding ring, but not ordered it yet. Because my fingers are so skeletal, I have to have it custom made, as its not possible to resize down more than a few sizes, and my finger is a size H.

I keep thinking to myself: I’m getting all organized with everything, but we’ve neglected to actually SET A DATE yet!! I keep getting bogged down in the nitty gritty, like choosing the invitation designs, or looking at jewelry, we’ve even talked to the people where we’re thinking of having a short 3 or 4 day honeymoon, and keep forgetting that we actually don’t have a date yet. D’oh!


This week we had a brief getaway to our favourtie spot in Australia, Montville. We stayed at these beautiful new cottages, which are very modern and stylish. Each cottage even has a coffee machine, everything was presented beautifully, and all really good quality stuff - huge king size bed, Weber Q bbq on the deck, beautiful bed linen, even the crockery and cutlery was good quality!

The view from the deck, overlooking rainforest. It was so relaxing and peaceful, I didn't want to leave! The only sound was birds chirping, and the wind in the trees...

This cheeky Kookaburra came and stole a sausage from OH's breakfast plate yesterday morning! While I was sitting right there! Scared the absolute crap out of me, I thought it was going to attack me, but no, it just wanted one of his sausages! They are very well fed, and not at all scared of people.

Well I'd better start thinking about going back to work I guess. Training has been a little hit and miss this week, what with going away. We did have a bush walk, and a very energetic game of tennis while we were there, so that has to count for something, right?! Back into it fully as of now though.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Montville's a beautiful area and the perfect place for a getaway Hilary.

Gorgeous isn't it? My ex's brother got married at Montville a few years ago and we stayed a few days there.

Hmm.... it was when the Hale-Bopp comet was passing in 1997 and we all ended up getting very drunk on red and standing outside looking for it. hmmmm..memories....

That place looks beautiful Hilary.

It sure is a gorgeous spot Lia, I would live there if I could!

Frankie that sounds like it would have been a fun experience, getting drunk, seeing the comet and being in beautiful Montville all at the same time!

It is Kristy, and its so peaceful too.
