What a weekend…..I know, I know… I say that every Monday, but gosh…. I really mean it this time….

Saturday was my Bridal Shower Lunch organised by my girlfriend Sally O at The Survey Co and it was just perfect… perfect!

Sally made beautiful little paper leis for everybody using brass fittings, string, cardboard, beads and feathers…. I put together some posies for the tables with ivy berry, pink roses and blue gum in old french jam jars.

It was just so wonderful to see all of my gorgeous girlfriends and family around a table having a great time together, enjoying good food and wine….. and chatting furiously about anything and everything! I loved every second of it.

One of the highlights was my floral headpiece made by Ashleigh at Alba Roses. I had a brief chat to Ashleigh about wearing a headpiece and what I thought it should look like. Her interpretation was incredible and she took it to another level entirely. I felt very special with it on and the fragrance just floated around me. It survived the afternoon at lunch and even way into the evening…. and then into the wee hours of Sunday morning…. most importantly it survived me dancing and singing to Kenny Rogers ‘The Gambler’…..

In Kenny’s words ‘…know when to walk away … and know when to run…’ and clearly I didn’t do either as i had a minor ohmygosh huge hangover Sunday. It takes a lot to slow me down, however I was stopped in my tracks yesterday. I sat in the back garden in the sun and watched the sheets dry on the clothes line…. I noticed that the jonquil bulbs I had planted a few weeks ago were coming up…. I watched Timothy O chop wood….

I just watched Sunday roll by and thought how incredibly lucky I am.
