Sun, Sea, Sand and Sunburn.

Yesterday was a very warm and sunny day. It's the perfect sort of day for going to the beach, if you are a beach-going sort of person. We aren't but we went to Bondi beach for a birthday party for one of Bubby's playmates from daycare. I forgot to bring sunscreen and hats and I also forgot to bring a muslin sheet to put over the pram and it was a long walk back to where we parked the car so all of us got sunburnt.

I haven't been this sunburnt since a month before my wedding.

Would you believe that it is Bubby's first time at the beach? It's the first time he's encountered sand that's not in a sand pit. It's so easy to spot Bubby and hubby, they are the only ones who are fully clothed.

I've never seen so many brown people who are not meant to be brown. I didn't take a photo of them but I was tempted.

Hubby always says why go to the beach when you can swim int he pool. Why indeed?

Happy New Year! The Best Husband. Recent Purchases.

2013 has been a good year. Crazy, stressful, maddening but also fun, memorable and full of love. Ah, so cheesy. And so 2013 has come to an end and so has the holidays. Hubby goes back to work on Monday and my bubble is about to burst. The last couple of weeks of having him home has been so good. Maybe I'll buy a winning lottery ticket after all so we can continue to live in this happy bubble.

We, or rather I, spent New Year's Eve shopping at the insistence of my husband. He literally forced me to shop. Who am I to say no? I actually did try to say no but deep down my heart didn't mean it. Ha!

I showed restraint and only bought four items. I'll post the contents if I manage to find the time.

We went to DFO (because I almost never buy anything that's not on sale). I can't believe how many high end outlets are there now. There are also Armani and Zegna. Still not as good a bargain as overseas outlets but I guess plane tickets aren't cheap. Had Ferragamo been open already I don't think I would have been as restrained. And I'm excited about Brooks Brothers.

And look what I found at the supermarket today? It's just one holiday after another after all.
