The room divider i purchased from WAC has a home and is a total god send to me for two reasons. Firstly, it's sorted out my open plan dilemma of my dining and sunroom being too open, and secondly it's allowed me to pull these lounge chairs out of the shed. The indigo blue tone is a nice change to black which i admittedly overuse.
Those blinds were seriously cheap from Ikea a few years ago now. Sadly, they no longer produce them. I mean cheap-cheap, like $25 for a the big ones and $15 or something for the small. They also came in red and natural and white.
The man who sold me the gramophone looked me in the eye and said to me that it worked well, i just needed a stylus. The man was being dishonest. AM radio only, luckilly I listen to 882 4BH all the time and love it (much to the surprise of many) but the record player is sickly. A man told me he'd fix it for $1500 a year ago. I politely declined.
My friend's husband is right into Gramophones and old radios and knows 'someone'. He's gonna hook me up.
A friend said to me the other day 'does that hippo freak you out at night'... when i look at his fangs now - on this angle, i feel like he should. But he doesn't. He's got a fat belly which is cute and takes the attention away from his mouth. He's a hippo, a comment like that is a compliment!
I have a cold along with 60% of Brisbane due to this dramatic change in climate. It's that time of year that i need to get into the top cupboards and pull out the wool and fluff to keep us warm for a few months. If there's one thing that really bugs me about Colonials and Qld'er homes it's the lack of storage. What i need is a walk in robe like Carrie's in Sex and the City II. Imagine having that? All i can do is just that ... imagine.
Wishing you all a flu-free and toasty warm week.
