Thank you, dear sister

Although our xmas this year is somewhat subdued, my favourite sister's creativity and generosity continues to astound and please us. Handmade xmas gifts galore!

As the sun set off the Western Australian coast, we tried to comfort each other in our individual sorrows of losing our loved one.

Communication takes time, sure – maybe a minute or so.  It takes a bit of effort, certainly – one actually has to pick up the phone and talk or punch out a text.  But, truly, just do it.  They might leave without saying goodbye.

1-2 Dressember

A hot start to summer meant light, billowy dresses for the first days of Dressember.

For my first day of Dressember I wore my cotton and silk Cafe dress, bought from Department of the Exterior in Manuka last year.  (Have you been there?  I love it.)

Coincidentally, Sunday's dress was also from the same shop, but several years ago now.  It's Ammo and very, very comfy. It's probably my favourite dress but starting to look a little worse for wear these days.  However, it was an ideal choice for Sunday morning coffee and cake with mates.

Fear not, there will not be daily posts of 'what I wore'.  I'm planning end of week posts and end of weekend posts for the rest of Dressember.  I'm looking forward to the challenge of wearing the same dress to work every day this week.  Yikes!
