valentines day

our first as husband & wife was spent with a follow up orthodontist appointment in the morning, a bit of shopping at westfield bondi junction followed by brunch at le pain quotidien

adam had a bit of work to do in the afternoon and we went for a delicious dinner at the newly opened meat & wine company at darling harbour.

we both got some cool presents-adam bought be some lacoste sunglasses, some near gear from lululemon and the sweetest card, my first that says 'wife' on it. i got him some herringbone collar stiffners he had his eye on.

christmas & new year in perth

christmas was only some 6 weeks ago but better late than never right?
adam and i spent 10 days in perth over christmas and new year where we relaxed, drank and ate way too much and caught up with family & friends.
most days the weather was around 40 degrees... a tad HOTter from what we're used to here in sydney.
my dad took the whole time off from work which is unheard of for him, it was so nice to see him relax. he potted around in the garden every day and some of my favorite photos from christmas are these from when cruz took the hose out his hand and ran around spraying him...

dad drove mum, adam & i down to donnybrook where anita and jon live, we stopped along the way for fruit, jams and other goodies alike. anita and jon made a delicious lunch of spinach filos, corn fritters with cream friache and caramelized onion tarts all washed down with some moet and donnybrook's own apple cider which we've both been craving since christmas.

we had a nice relaxed nye. claire and gaz came over for canapes and drinks. dym made a gorgeous watermelon and mint cocktail and we feasted on smoked salmon, grilled prawn skewers, fish mornay vol au vents, chicken drumettes and mum's famous sausage rolls.

a great end to 2010.
