It’s another Sunday, so that means it’s time for another week in pictures! This week was a hectic one at work, and I have been a bit exhausted but it’s been a pretty good kind of busy so I don’t mind so much.
Last Sunday we visited the Bus Depot Markets in Kingston, if you’re ever in Canberra on a Sunday I highly recommend a visit. I love just wandering around and seeing what everyone is selling. There are some crazy talented people there!
This week we bought our gorgeous dog Chewbacca a new toy because I saw it when we went to get dog food and couldn’t resist it! It’s a Darth Vader squeaky toy and she absolutely loves it. There were also a Princess Leia headband with her signature buns but Stu refused to let me get it for Chewie. I think it would have been adorable.
We had an exhibition launch at work this week which was fun but tiring. I love the design of the exhibition, it’s so retro. It’s an exhibition on post-war immigration and it’s really interesting, and launches are always fun. Plus the head of communications gave me one of the lovely bunches of flowers to take home as a thank you for helping out on the night. They’re so pretty!
We had a date night at the movies on Friday night and saw Mockingjay at Palace Electric, possibly my favourite cinema ever. It’s just so plush and grown up. I love it. The movie itself was really good. I spent yesterday re-reading Mockingjay and I have to say I think the adaption to film was pretty good. It’ll be interesting to see how they handle the second half, especially as I think the second half of Mockingjay was the least liked part of the trilogy for a lot of fans.
We were devastated to hear about the tragic accident and subsequent death of Phil Hughes this week. We’re both big cricket fans so it impacted us on that level, but Stu is also a cricketer so he is taking it especially hard. Life is so random sometimes, and I know we and so many others are praying for the Hughes family and especially for Sean Abbott in this horrible time for them. We put out our bat to honour Phil Hughes this weekend.
Last, but not least, our Christmas tree is up! I love having the tree up, I’d put it up in October if it weren’t socially unacceptable (and if my husband would actually let me do that!). I’m a traditionalist with Christmas decorations, white lights and traditional red and gold decorations for the tree.
What kind of Christmas decorations do you have in your home? Traditional or modern?
