oh my... i am super overwhelmed at the moment and have a 'to do' list that is almost a page long! we have been in the new house for over two weeks now and i am slowly getting more and more frustrated because there are boxes everywhere and i cant find anything... grrr! i wish i was one of those people who could be moved, unpacked and organised within a week and just settle into a blissful life of craft, gardening and home cooked meals.
we are also getting into marking and reporting at school which is a little scary for me as this is my first time assessing students as a real teacher.
i promise i will be back soon with op shop finds, lovely mail, vintage clothes on ebay and a giveaway. i miss this lovely blogging land of pretty things and fabulous people. im just going to take a few days and try and get things under control...
see you later in the week xx kel

sorry i have been a bit absent for the last few days. my life has been full of school, moving and (finally) some op shopping!! here in brisbane we had a public holiday this week for the annual 'ekka' (which is essentially a big carnival slash show)!
i grabbed some girlfriends and headed down to the gold coast to check out the op shops. i'll post about all my treasures a bit later.
here is some mail that landed in my letterbox this week...
a lovely parcel and note from Allana... she is fabulous! if you havent met her you can do so over here! Thanks so much Allana :)
and some lovely mail from Megan for a stationery swap. i love everything she sent and cant wait to do some serious letter writing this weekend! THANKS!!
we spent our first night in the new house last night. it is a bit of a drive to work but so lovely and peaceful out there. its such a nice place to come home to... mess and all! chris cooked us up a yummy omlette last night for dinner, it doesnt look too nice but it was made in our own kitchen which was so lovely after almost a year of living with mum! yay!
while chris cooked up some food for us... i busied myself with the really important tasks of moving - like putting up fairy lights in our bed head. haha!
have a fabulous weekend :)
p.s - i am internetless for the moment so posting might be a bit sporadic for the next few weeks. i will do my very best... xx
