Final days of September

birthday_sundaybestI’ve been a little quiet of late on Sunday Best, only for a few good reasons of course.

Just for a week I decided to disconnect from my computer and enjoy a fun week leading up to my birthday. Enjoying sleep-ins, drinks on sunny roof tops, dinner with a close friend, finding a hidden gift under my bed from an absent husband and flowers and cupcakes arriving at work from my parents were just a few special moments to mention.

I also excitedly watched my favourite football team make it into the AFL Grand Final. To witness the excitement build in Melbourne leading up to the final and also to get a ticket to go just a few days before was the sweetest icing on the (birthday) cake.

I have been extremely spoilt this year!

P.s If you were wondering, it was a mini iPad in that little box.

Here’s cheers to fresh flowers and a beautiful weekend.

Three!

On friday we celebrated three years of living in the fabulous city of Melbourne. We were both lucky enough to have the day off to adventure around our favourite suburbs and eat our way through the culinary delights that Melbourne constantly surprises us with. We discovered new places as well as visited some old favourites. Really it’s unbelievable that another year has wizzed by since this post. Below are some memories over the past three years.

A Special Sunday

AbigailSo there was another reason why I wanted to learn how to knit. Since January I’ve been secretly learning how to knit two tiny baby beanie’s so I could give both my sister Simone and my close friend Erin a special hand made gift for their new little ones.

Finally last week I packed my bags along with finished beanies and made a sneaky visit back to Perth. I surprised Simone at her baby shower on Saturday and then on Sunday to surprise Erin just only a few hours after coming home from the hospital to meet her newbie, Miss Abigail Louise. Abigail came into the world at 2.22am on Sunday the 17th March. She couldn’t be any more perfect. Well done Erin and can’t wait to make another visit back to Perth to meet my nephew.
