Now that I am a home owner I've spent my nights and Saturdays painting, I’ve been walking around with paint on my hands, under my nails in my hair and all over my clothes…sexy! I have no idea why the previous owner had such love for the colour yellow, but that was the first thing to go. The walls upstairs is now a nice creamy beige, it’ll match the new carpet that we are getting put in next week. It's been crazy because everything has to run on the tightest schedule, the painting must be done by Thursday so that on Friday the floor man can come in to sand and polish the floor boards (it'll take 1 weeks before we are allowed to step on the floor - just in time for furniture delivery).
I can see it all coming together now…we're so excited!
This is me painting the undercoat in our study - goodbye yellow walls, goodbye pink carpet!
I could easily stay at home painting all day, but did I mention that my best bud Sarah is back in Oz for 2 weeks! So in between work, renovating and what ever else it is that I do, I've been busy cooking, eating, playing monopoly, going out and catching up.
Thursday - Tiramisu & Monopoly @ Sarah's
Katina, Sarah and I have a Monopoly feud that has gone on for about 10 or so years (currently I am still the defending champion!). Katina wanted to take this title away from me and challenged us to a game of monopoly. The game will conclude next Saturday but so far Mr Westwood is in the lead.
Thursday Night -Bobbi's Amateur Night @ Pure Platnium
We just had to show Sarah what all this pole dancing business was about, it just so happened that Bobbi's was hosting an amateur night. For the record the twins and I strictly do pole dancing for body toning (it's the new pilates!) and only at the school. We spotted a few Australian celebrities before we headed off to Brighton for dinner at 11:30pm.
Friday Day Time- Ladies Lunch
And cook they did, what a great job! unfortunately I accidently formatted my CF card before I saved my photos but I managed to recover a few...some I stole from Betty & Lisa.
Dessert: Homemade tiramisu, Chocolate dipped strawberries
Friday Night - The Sounds of Motown @ South Sydney Leagues Club
The Concert was awesome! As we were leaving we saw that one of the rooms downstairs was having a Retro night. So the 6 of us decided to stay for a boogie, we whipped out some pretty crazy moves, the running man, the chicken dance (much to the amusement of the local oldies). When the dancers came out on stage dressed in blue lycra and pink hair it was a sign for us to go!
We later headed to the city and I called it a night at 12:00am but the others partied on. Rowena if you are reading this, do you know that your brother Ryan tried to pick up Sarah at Equilibrium!??! he didn't recognise her! I think that you need to have words with him.
