Wowser, what a great Easter weekend! I always look forward to Easter, because it gives me a chance to catch up with my family for several days. Everyone has time off, is relaxed and willing to gorge themselves on chocolate. Happy days.
The weekend started with my brother and I driving back home together. We chilled out with my dad, watching telly, and then headed over to my nan’s place for afternoon tea. We had epic Trivial Persuit and Uno tournaments. I spent Easter Saturday with Ross’s family. We had a delicious barbeque lunch and then went to see Paul at the cinema. The film was excellent. I enjoyed it more than Hot Fuzz but not as much as Shaun of the Dead. If you’re a Pegg and Frost fan, you’ll love it. The film will also appeal to anyone who like sci-fi, comic book nerds or comedy afficionados.
Easter Sunday started off with my family’s traditional Easter hunt. It was a more sedate hunt than usual, because my dad fell over and injured himself about ten seconds into it. He’s fine, but the rest of the hunt was rather quiet, because it’s usually my dad that gets all hopped up on sugar, and starts shoving people out of the way so that he can collect the most eggs. After breakfast, my parents and I drove back to Melbourne.
On Monday, Ross came to visit me for the night. I decided to wear something bright, sweet and feminine:
– Pink crocheted shawl (handmade by my aunt).
– White rose tee-shirt from Sass and Bide
– Pink and yellow beaded skirt (thrifted)
– Nude fishnet tights
– Yellow button heels (thrifted)
– PInk chiffon brooch (Target).
Yesterday, Ross and I had a short trip into the city. I was celebrating the end of Lent and being able to shop again. I bought myself a copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows on DVD and also a Dorothy bubble bath bar from Lush. We checked out All Star Comics, which is a new comic book store on Lonsdale Street. I was thoroughly impressed with the store. It is clean and well-organized, the staff are super-friendly and they have a pretty good range of stock. If you’re in Melbourne and you’re looking for a great place to buy comics or retro toys, check out All Star Comics. I highly recommend it.
Today was a job-hunting day. I’m still not having much luck with the job searching. I have a few promising leads, but nothing concrete yet. This morning I headed out to hand out some resumes (and then ate butterscotch cheesecake for lunch).
I am wearing:
– Black round sunglasses from Factorie
– Grey cable knit jumper from Supre
– Black pinstripe mini skirt from K Mart.
– Black fishnet tights by Leona Edminson
– Red Chanel handbag (thrifted)
– Black patent leather heels from Nine West
– Silver clog pendant
– Amethyst ring.
On the bus on the way home, there were a group of teenage boys trying to harmonize to Ben E. King’s ‘Stand By Me”. They were dreadful. I think they’d watched waaay to many episodes of Glee. At least the kids on Glee have discovered the magic of autotune, so it at least sounds like they can sing. It would be awesome if life were a musical, but sadly, it just isn’t.
I hope you all had a brilliant Easter weekend!
