Weekly roundup!

Good god, its October!...where did the year go?
Have had a fairly productive week this week so feeling quite good about that! And who doesnt feel happy when there is 3 days of weekend coming up!

1. Its a long weekend here is Australia woohoo! (weather doesnt look so hot though....) Im feeling a trip to the flower markets & ikea coming on (school holidays, is this a good idea?) & a bit of spring cleaning of the apartment. If i do make it out of bed at 5am for the flower markets & the roses are cheap i think id like to make me some of these mega Anna Spiro style arrangments :) Maybe a little extravagant for my one bedroom apartment..whatever! I also just started reading Eat Love Pray so im sure a spot of reading will be on my adgenda too!

2. Im trying out the New Shangahai Dumpling restaurant in Chatswood tonight with a friend - its supposed to be great so looking forward to that!

3. I finally sent my business cards to the printers this week!
Veeerrrry exciting (Ill show you them next week when they arrive!)

4. The kitchen ive been working on is coming along nicely, the joinery (minus the doors), benchtops & the fantastic 900mm freestanding cooktop & oven are all in! (ill also show you the 'before' photos of that next week!)

5. Finally there are only a few more days to enter my Domino Book of Decorating giveaway! All you have to do is become a follower and leave a comment on this post to say you have!
