Hello everyone , as I finally sit down to draft this post I find it hard to believe it is now the 18th. August, where has the month gone.
I have also been busy in my garden pruning the last of the roses and generally weeding and tidying up as we head towards Spring . We have signs that Spring will arrive early this year , most of the bulbs are flowering at least two weeks ahead and my large magnolia tree is already coming in to bloom as are the camellias . Winter has been wet but milder with just a few frosts.
I also have had my second Covid vaccination with no side effects at all . Australia is way behind with vaccinations compared to many countries but that is another story.
Last Tuesday John and I travelled to Hobart to join our son Zac to celebrate his birthday , he turned 34 on the 8th. , seems like yesterday we welcomed him into the world.
We joined Zac for lunch at a Japanese restaurant , Bar Wa Izakaya, in the city. Stepping inside reminded us of being back in Japan . A return visit to Japan for the Autumn colours is on our list for the future .
I wore my black floral velvet Kenzo jacket , a recycle find in Melbourne a few years ago paired with my old favourite Moyuru skirt. I love this jacket and know I will wear it forever but I did chuckle when we collected little Harry from day care and he announced that Mimi (me) was wearing her jammies(pyjamas). Out of the mouths of babes , his Mummy must have floral PJ’s I forgot to ask.
We didn’t take outfit photos on the day so as I wore it again yesterday , be with a couple of additions , and took photos in the garden. I added the green wool turban style hat that has been with me a few Winters now , orange gloves bought in Paris in 2016 , an orange necklace , Preston Zly white and black boots and red floral tights and cream sunnies.
