Welcome to this weeks Top Three Tuesday. Once again another random week in the life of me. I had every intention of posting some baking pics and recipes this week, but as you can see time got the better of me and I failed, miserably.
On Friday night Ben and I headed into the Perth Concert hall to watch the Simon and Garfunkel Story. Now I’m not a massive S&G fan, but I was super excited about seeing it, as a friend of mine is in the show. My friend Greg is playing the role of Paul Simon – and he was FABULOUS as was the whole show, turns out I knew and liked more of their songs than i thought. I was so happy to see him again after so long, we first met in 2009 when we both worked Front of House at a theatre in London. Due to various personal reasons, my time at the theatre wasn’t the best, some truly heartbreaking moments played out in that theatre, and not just on the stage. But Greg was always there, a mate I could always count on to make me smile. A truly wonderful person and friend. I was gutted to find out his stay in Perth was literally one day. We had a brief chat after the show and then he was off to bump out the show and then fly out to Adelaide at 6am the next morning. It was great to catch up but it was also sad as our catch up was so brief, it would have been great for Greg and Ben to get to know each other and I really wanted to show off some of the great sights in Perth. Fingers crossed he gets another tour and will come back soon!
2. Stormy weather and Ellie
On Saturday night we found ourselves up the hill at Ben’s parents house. It was FREEZING cold (by Perth standards) all day and even colder during the evening. A storm rolled through during the day dumping lots of rain and also hail. We arrived during the afternoon and decided to order pizza for dinner (it was too cold to go out) After dinner we settled in for the night in front of the tele and watched The Fugitive (I’d never actually seen it all the way through before) Even though it was freezing outside, there was no chance of me getting too cold as I had a super cute hot water bottle. Ellie sat next to/on me for most of the night. She was so warm, at one point I had to shove her off my leg as I was getting too hot! I actually think I was sitting in “her spot” as she normally wants to sit as close to Ben as possible. She did head on over to him (after I shoved her off my leg) for a little while, but then headed back to me. It was so nice having her cuddle up to me during the movie, even if she did snore 😛
My hot water bottle
I don’t think she was particularly impressed when I got too warm and pushed her away!
So she headed over to Ben for cuddles – She thinks she’s a lap dog. She is not.
3 . Review Dress
A few weeks ago in a Top Three Tuesday post, I wrote about how my favourite fashion label, Review was having a sale. I was so excited and I bought the cutest dress. I wore the dress for the first time on Friday night to see my friends show. I had planned to get Ben to take a nice full lenght photo of me in my dress at some point during the evening, but that didn’t happen. So instead you get the worst outfit bathroom selfie of all time!! It was a super quick pic of my outfit to send to my mum, she loved it, because she’s my mum, I think the photo is horrid, but its all I’ve got! I love the dress so much and I’m gutted I didn’t get a nice pic of me wearing it. I will have a few more chances to wear it soon though, as I’ve got a few weddings and engagement parties coming up. I’m determined to get a nice photo of me in it
It was a wet cold and raining evening in Perth, but who said you have to wear boring black and navy – Yay for colour
Click here for the dress – and its still on sale!!
Thanks for stopping by. See you next time 🙂
