Last night my friend Mel dropped around. She has been out of the country for the last couple of months, just quit her job and went to Hawaii! I wish I could just disappear for a few months like that (without quitting my job) to somewhere exotic – the Bahamas, Bora Bora, Fiji…I won’t discriminate anywhere with sand and crystal blue/green water would do. Maybe it’s just the winter weather, I don’t deal with the cold very well.
According to my sweet boy A, apparently country people do that, they stop by without calling first. It was so welcome though, I talked for most of the couple of hours she was over even cried a couple of times and she was a fantastic shoulder to cry on.
On a happy note – did I tell you I saved $85 on the jacket I’m wearing today when I bought it on the weekend? I tweeted that I was at Glassons at Kotara and they were having a massive closing down sale. I got this mustard jacket (I fell in love with a Minty meets Munt fisherman jacket last year but they ran out of my size before I could buy one!!!) down from $100 – $15. SERIOUSLY. Random fact: The first record of the word maroon in English was in 1789.
