fairy dresses with Third World Ant

Third World Ant whisked me away on Saturday for a stint of retail therapy and a smoothie. It was great for two reasons:
She is so sensible yet crazy at the same time; and
I found the best fairy/formal pink dress in the whole world.

I didn't do much in the way of going out this weekend, which was great for once. Usually I feels as though I'm missing out. Instead I tanned by the pool, took a drive with Steve up Munro Drive to check out the view of the city from the watch point (it's lovely, being Spring/Summer at the moment), we bought some books, and planned our Mozambique getaway over Christmas. Yip, we're going for three whole weeks to Mozam! I am so excited, we even bought a road map and Lonely Planet. (For those of you not in the know: it's a country north east of SA, filled with white sandy beaches, palms, awesome Portuguese locals, and lots of prawns and crayfish. Just what the doctor ordered.)

Third World Ant and a couple of other cool travellers are joining us too, so it should be great. Only two months to go...

nothing lifts my soul better than a a little retail therapy, i squeezed in a little myself this weekend, no pink fairy/formal dresses though.

Fairy dresses? Sunbathing in October?? Christmas in Mozambique???

Am quite jealous! All we have to look forward to in Blighty is a siberian winter and bird flu;)

I know, the fairy dress was quite a find.

Handbag - I know, I'm a lucky chick. I have to focus on that. In the meantime though, I wouldn't mind a plate of bangers and mash, mushy peas and a pint of Guiness in a cosy little pub. Seriously. So many of my friends are off to good old England before the end of the year to revel in everything that's British-for good, as well!
I feel as though I am somehow missing out. :)
