I've been working my butt off lately preparing for the shop opening, I've finished several pieces of furniture (despite the enormous amount of rain which has hampered my progress), and cleaned/repaired/priced/packed 17 boxes of small stuff (only 10 boxes left to do, yay!).
We're off to the Central Coast (9 hours drive south) to visit with VBs aunt and uncle for a couple of weeks. I'm also sneaking off to Melbourne for 3 days -gasp- alone! I'm on a mission to source some serious vintage clothing, eat some proper (i.e. decent Italian) food, wander around antique centres, Chapel street (fashion shopping mecca), Fitzroy (vintage shopping area), meet up with some friends and generally soak up the atmosphere in my favourite Australian city.
I'm taking one of the many vintage suitcases I've stashed away, all clothes for me and VB fit in it too. Just for Melbourne I'm taking my white fur coat, in the hope that it'll be cold enough to wear it. Melbourne being Melbourne, it probably will be. See my 2 new hair flowers there? I swapped them for a ring at the markets, I'm rather pleased with that.I won't be blogging much less than usual but probably won't comment as much, as I'll be trying to have a bit of a break from the computer. Just a bit, mind, I think I'd pass out if I had to consider leaving the laptop at home!
