Hubby's been away all week doing 'business stuff'. I took the opportunity to tidy up his almost tidy office (he had a marathon clean out last weekend... when you're busy building a business and so, so focussed....paperwork takes a backseat... even a 'declutterer' like me understands this and just gives him his messy space from time to time). I took the opportunity to source a desk lamp for him too (seeing as I have poached his beautiful desk lamps temporarily for use as our bedside lamps). I found this gorgeous lamp at Ikea... get out... and for only $59 ... GET OUT...fabulous quality... as heavy as a heavy rock. So impressed. As Faux Fuchsia would say, "Run, don't walk". I mean it. It's gorgeous. RDW.
I had to laugh, we had our morning 'absentee father skype session', yesterday morning, before school. Hubby had had a rather rough night. He arrived into Sydney, from Melbourne, at 10.30pm, thinking that he would just 'wing it' with accommodation, like he always does (we're a last minute family here). Hmmm, a House and Garden thingy is on in Sydney this weekend.... so do you think he could find a room? Well he did, a seedy one, in Kings Cross... and when he tried to explain what the word 'seedy' means (and the aesthetic of Kings Cross) to his sons, he summed it up by saying, "it's where all the drug dealers are"..... what else do you say to wide eyed innocents? Little one was mortified and exclaimed, " please don't have a drug Dad".... and big one said, "watch your drinks". Innocence for not much longer. Sometimes I hate the world I am sending them out into.
Happy Weekend all and thanks for visiting me this week... and for all your lovely comments and conversations. I am going to put in a concerted effort to visit you back this weekend..... coffee's on....so I'll see you soon!
