Him Indoors wanted to learn a different language.
His dream is to sail around the globe
and I advised him that Spanish is spoken all over the world
(totally off the top of my head, because he asked and that was the answer I came up with).
He started last term, but work commitments meant he only attended two classes.
He deferred to this term and booked me in as well.

Off we went on Monday evening.
There was a quick dash to the stationary shop on Monday morning,
because; any excuse really.

What fun!
I'm looking forward to next week.

This little package arrived yesterday from
Leah of
I won the giveaway
Yoo Hoo!
Have rarely won anything in my life, so this was an exciting moment for me.
The peanut slab has already been devoured
and the Fairy has her eye on the little flax bag.
The photo does not do justice to the pendant,
it's truly a beautiful piece.
Thanks Leah!

Sydney is just glorious this week.
Hope all yours are going well.

Oh to sail the deep blue seas :)

Love your pendant and the little kete it came in...just gorgeous.

Whittakers chocolate is our favourite, we used to live up the road from the factory and were tantalised by it's aroma on a daily basis.

I'm so pleased your parcel arrived safe and sound. I was so sure customs would remove the kete, having watched Border Security!!! Have a fabulous weekend hon.
