This is where I am

296/365.
swoon a new deck table, 296/365

On the deck, sitting at the new to our house table. With my laptop (obviously), a pot of of florally sencha and some grapes. This table is the perfect height. I found the old table a bit too high to type/sit comfortably at. This table will also be great for cutting fabric on as well 🙂 yay.

I can hear a faint din of traffic on Corro drive, the whistles and cheers from the basketball stadium and the sounds of feet fall as people walk through the park.

Today is day 299 for my 365 project. It seems like I’ve been doing this for ages now. Today also marks 292 days till I go to Japan next year with one of the girls. I’m so excited about that trip. We will be away from March 1 to March 15 and will be flying in and out of Osaka. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am. Oh all the places to explore and visit as well as crafty and cute things to peruse.

Lunch on Lawson's, 299/365

We got a free lunch today from Lawson’s who are running a Lunch on Lawson’s promo across the country this month. We will also be having a free lunch tomorrow and on Friday as well. Today our sandwich came from e’cco and was just amazing. Somehow I’ve a feeling that our sandwiches tomorrow and Friday will also be amazing. Registrations for tomorrow in Brisbane have closed but are still open for Friday. My entire department will be having sandwiches on Friday as they were all quite taken with our lunch today. If you are in Brisbane and would like a yummy free lunch on Friday, register now! If you are in Sydney or Melbourne, Lawson’s is coming to your town later this month.

And on a different note to finish off with. I’m going back to Uni!! I’ve been thinking about it for the last 18mths or so and bit the bullet a few months ago and put my application in for the Semester 2 intake.

I was very excited when I came home last week to this email.

  1. Congratulations on going back to uni! 🙂
    I’ve been thinking about this too but don’t know how to combine it with working fulltime…

    Love the new table btw 🙂

  2. you are going to love Japan! I’ll try to dig up the name of the fabric store that I visited that was amazing.

    Congrats on going back to uni!

  3. Hi Helen! Thought I’d pop over following on from the message you left for me today on my blog. 🙂
    Congrats on getting into uni (I’d be a permanant student given the chance!) and very jealous to see your heading off to Japan.
    Your photo’s are fantastic – I love the picture of the soap (I thought it was a cake – it looks delicious!) I need to update my ‘point and shoot’ digital camera as I love how your photos blur and lose focus in the background…. my pictures look very flat and boring in contrast!
