fancy pants


There's nothing better than getting back into the usual program. Here we are after four weeks of day-to-day stuff, it's good to get all Fancy Pants once more.

And usually, I don't snap photographs in the middle of the day (hence the funny legline in the photos), but I had the best surprise today. My best friend from Adelaide called me this morning to see if I was going to be around for the rest of the weekend.

Why, you ask? Well, Tiger Airlines cancelled her husband and son's tickets to Melbourne and so they were driving over for the motor show. She and her two littlest kids (she has five!) decided to come along for the ride and stayed with us last night. The kids have run around the house madly for most of the night, but after they finally went to sleep, we chatted, giggled and laughed until after midnight.

It was a teeny tiny bit of time we had, but it was still so special, and such a great surprise. Nothing like a little home time madness with four little kids having a sleep over, and two friends talking over the top of each other to make sure every moment counted.

We even had time to count my shoes (because she swears I own more than I said I did here) and look at my wardrobe. Yes, we confirmed that I have more clothes than her, but less than she thought I had.

Including these funkadelic shoes. My $60 shoes. Thank you Miss Shop. They're even so comfortable my son likes to wear them around the house. (He's very stylish.)

As for me, I'm just silly most of the time. And then other times I pretend to have intense attitude...

... but it doesn't really work.

Have you had a wonderful surprise happen to you recently? Were you super excited?
