7th Anniversary. Outfit Post. Other Happenings.

Tomorrow, hubby and I will have been married for 7 years! We had an early celebration yesterday and had lunch at Sepia. 

A nice way to end 12 courses. Yes, 12 courses. This dessert actually defeated me. I could not finish it. That is a first.

Yum. We also started with oysters, double yum. It has been so long. I wished I could have washed it all down with wine but I'm still breastfeeding. My aim is to start drinking again by my birthday. Ha!

I finally wore something worth posting about, at least, I think.

I prayed for a cold day so I can wear my new coat which I bought in the middle of summer. Pity about the wrinkles on my clothes. I took the photos at the end of the day.

I love this dress so much and...

it even has pockets!

I haven't used a cute bag in so long.

Or heels. I think I'm cursed as these are the 4th pair of shoes that broke while I was wearing them. Nevertheless, it was so nice to walk around in heels. Heck it was nice to just be able to walk around without a baby wrapped around my legs or strapped to me while chasing a toddler or pushing a pram and at a leisurely pace.

The last time I broke a pair of sandals. I bought those blue flats then spilled petrol on the right shoe so now the bow on the right shoe is darker. I'm tempted to go back to the petrol station to douse the left shoe so they match again.

7 years, 2 kids and a mummy pouch later, I still fit into my wedding dress, basically.

For reference, this is how my dress looked on me on my wedding day.

I love my dress even if the original dressmaker didn't do the best job. I nearly bought another dress 2 weeks before the wedding but my usual seamstress who does all my usual alterations worked her magic. She added lace and beading (which I didn't want) and tulle under the train and made me a veil all in exchange for an air conditioner (ha!). At that point I didn't care anymore and I just wanted not to expose too much of my non-existent cleavage. I am so glad I let her have a play with it. The lace and the beading turned out to be my favourite part of the dress.

In other happenings, most of my time is spent preparing food, feeding, ferrying to and from daycare, in between I try to do housekeeping but you'll never guess it.

This little one is so adorable. Here he is passed out in the middle of playing still in a half seated position.

Here is Bubby enjoying his dessert and milk in his gum boots, on the park bench, under the tree, in the garden with the rainbow lorikeets.

I nearly bought myself a pair of gumboots as well with all the rain that we've been having.

Torrential downpour just as I reached the car before I could put Chububby in his seat.

I was soaked.

Later that day I slipped on the neighbour's driveway and sprained my thumb. I landed on my thumb because I didn't want to hurt my wrist. Still hurts but at least it's no longer black.

I must aim to blog more regularly.
