Sharing is caring!

Hello there! Yes, another weekend has gone by! This weekend it was Queen's Birthday weekend, so we had an extra day off. Which is funny, because we have the SAME Queen as the UK, but the UK doesn't get a Bank Holiday for Her Majesty's birthday! I guess that's one bonus about living down under :)

Today's post is a bit disjointed, but I wanted to share a few quick things with you.....

1. The boyfriend was away working last week and my new guilty pleasure became this:
Pretty Little Liars (I'm on season one, episode 11 already!!!! Hahaha). Never seen it before, and it is TOTALLY overacted, but I kinda love it :)

2. Today I was interviewed for my own job. Yup. My own job. I've been doing it for 18 months on and off, on a temporary contract, and today I became official!!! HOORAH - for the first time in over two years, I have a REAL JOB!

3. I am opening an Etsy shop!!! I am VERY excited about this, and also very scared. But what the heck, you only live once - so I am going for it. I have been like a little worker bee the last few days and hope to launch it in a week or so. 

4. After all of my weekends away lately the Weight Watchers diet has floundered, as did my gym routine. So today I am OFFICIALLY back on track, and am even celebrating my job success with a Weight Watchers cannelloni recipe!

5. I spent Sunday and Monday at this little bach (NZ holiday home slang) by the beach in a place called Foxton with friends. We had a very relaxed time, ate, drank and played a good old game of Monopoly (I came second!).
How funny is this place!?

Do you have anything to share too?



  1. The condo pool is opened and it's raining! How bad is that?
    Congrats for the permanent job and your new adventure with the ETSY Shop!

  2. Hi Sadie,
    CONGRATS on the job AND the Etsy exciting! I'll be happy to follow your progress. Thanks for the thumbs up on Pretty Little Liars, since I'm caught up on True Blood, 30 Rock and GG (yes, I'm pathetic!), I've been looking for another guilty, ridiculous pleasure and it sounds perfect. The "bach" is adorable and reminds me of our shack...a true shack in every sense of the word! Good luck on WW and I'll check back in soon to see how all is going.

  3. i'm getting all excited for you bout your etsy store!! lol. i love artsyfartsy people and handmade things (: (: don't forget to put your link up when your store's launched -- i'd love to check out your stuff for sale. also, pretty little liars is awesome!! :D emily fields is my favourite character, who's yours?

  4. Congratulations on the "real" job.. Although I am sure your job nefore was VERY real even if it didn't hold a permanent title. I can't wait to see what you create for the Etsy shop. It is scary but fun at the same time. The holiday house is definately different.. :)

  5. i have found a good link about etsy tips and tricks on the curious pug's blog sweetie, if you go to the tutorials section you should be able to find it :-) eeek so excited about opening my store too, hoping to make my own banner :-O

    yay for being back on the ww wagon, was the cannelloni nice? i just went on my first run in months today, and wow i was slow! but i didn't stop once during the whole 5k (3miles) v proud of myself, ha!

    congrats on your job being made official! and the holiday home looks so cute.

    Hugs, Anne
