I have some close relatives near Sydney and we keep telling them we'll go over but we never do... perhaps one day. My grandad spent six years there when he was younger and I know he loved it, so much so he would've moved there if his friend hadn't let him down.
Something that I've always found quite strange and interesting is that people go down the beach on Christmas day. Hardly the white, snowy image that that time of year usually brings to mind. :)

It's kind of funny that we trek over to 'the old country' all the time and folks in the northern part of the world hardly ever seem to make it down here, but usually have a great time when they do.

I try and stay away from the heat at that time of the year so no beaches at Christmas for me.  We like having a 'Christmas in July' dinner when it is a bit cooler :)

I can't be too exact because then there's more chance I'll be wrong (and I want to be right!) :)

No frindge, or maybe you do have one but it's a subtle one, if you know what I mean. The kind of one (like mine) that can be styled to look like you do have one and you don't. Don't know if I've explained that very well.

Soft brown eyes? Or possibly grey. Can't say anymore. I only have a vague image in my mind, and I keep thinking of you with cat ears and whiskers :)

 

Wow that fringe bit is creepy. It really is like that. Well, it was supposed to be like that. It's quite long now. I used to have straight bangs for a long time.

You were both wrong. I'm 5'4, I have long blonde, very thick hair. I'm proud of my hair because it has so many colours in it. I have grey-greenish eyes, which I'm also proud of, because they are quite striking, apparently they are a bit like cat eyes. I have freckles, a tip-tilted nose and a good mouth. No huge lips, but still, I've got quite a bit of lip. I'm not very slim, but not fat either. Just normal with a bit of a flabby tummy.

 

So there is a part of you that resembles a cat, then? There must have been something unconsciously telling me that, and I just thought it was because of your avatar :D

Apparently. Well, people tell me so :D I think it's more the colour and the fact my iris has quite a thick black line surrounding it that makes it look like cat eyes. Not really the shape.

My camp report:

It wasn't crying and being confronted with yourself at all. Well, the second one kind of was..

We did some activities and had to challenge the other groups. If you won, you'd go up a step on the pyramid. There was beerpong, but you had to throw with your bad hand and there was water in it, spijkerpoepen, which I don't know you know. You have this rope attached to you with a nail attached to that and you have to get the nail in a bottle. Then we had to build a house out of cards, but with one hand, which was impossible so we could do it with two. There was a drawing game too. One would draw something and the rest of the group had to guess what it was. The group that had the most cards guessed in 8 minutes won. We could also play soccer outside, and I would use my left leg and the other person their right leg and my right leg and her left would be attached to each other with elastic, which broke the whole time. I was very good at the beerpong thing so my group won the whole thing. We also did an estafette run, being blindfolded, which we also won. And then we had to do something with my entire class, which was forming a triangle with a rope, while being blindfolded. 

The evening/night was quite fun too. Everyone had taken booze with them and we played a drinking game with the other class called ''never have I'' and that was good to get to know each other, but some things were very shocking. Some people were completely drunk and it was a bit embarrassing.  The supervising teachers went to bed early and let us be completely free, because after all, we are adults. 

Next day we had to build a model for a care center for a group of disabled people. A few were spastic, a few epileptic, a few were in a wheelchair and a few were blind. So we had to build a home for them with special facilities. No one really cared about it but we really made a model on the right scale and all and it looked really good. Then we also had to make a poster which would advertise our care center. Our home won. I was really proud.

Then we had to build a bridge of half a meter between two chairs. We had to put knives on it and the more knives it could hold, the more points. If the bridge was longer, you could also get more points. So we couldn't really decide whether to go for weight or length and in the end it looked like shit. It was longer than half a meter though, so we got quite a few points. Then we had to play a game with both classes again. The numbers 1 til 11 and a * were laying on the ground and we got all got a number, same went for the other class. We could only walk forward or backwards and the class that had most of the people standing on the right number at the end won. At last we had to do tangram puzzles. All groups got pieces of paper in the shape of little triangles, big triangles, a small square, a weird shape and something else I've forgotten and had to make as many figures from a paper we got as possible. We only managed to get 2.

In the end my group ended second place. Another group passed us by with the tangram puzzles.

It wasn't really bad but not really that much fun either. They easily could've done this in the gym at school.

This is why I was asking about Pecksniff's. I bought this the other day on a whim and was wondering about the brand.

That is the shop in Brighton I was talking about. The logo's the same as the shop sign. Very definitely high end. Their shop in Brighton (which is a coastal town within a commuter drive of London) is in quite an old, and exclusive, shopping area known as The Lanes. Brighton is one our celebrity central's, being on the coast and with such easy access to London. Which means it has customers with lots of money.

And everything is overpriced.

The Lanes are very nice to walk about, has a couple of nice pubs.

I must have gotten a reject. It was five bucks.

If it was a reject, probably just down to the label. The bottom line, from the picture, appears dodgy, the "5" definitely looks partial, the "9" doesn't look right, and the "1" doesn't look as bold the rest. So it probably is a second. They're not a big enough name to fake. So I'm sure the contents are as made by them for their branded line.

I was treated to this sunset driving home. I just had to pull over and take a picture. When I got home, hubby was saying that the local news station was talking about the sunset.

That's stunningly beautiful. I adore the sky and sunsets like that. It's those kind that make me sit back and cry. Thanks for sharing that with us, Ahh Girl.
