Things I'm Loving 28.10.11

In the small pockets of spare time we've had in between watching an oval ball flying round a paddock non-stop these past six weeks, we've been enjoying going back to the early seasons of Spooks. Totally cool, MI-5 spy show with great characters, and gripping storylines. And they're not afraid to kill off good characters to keep the suspense and intrigue going...boohoo....but I gotta say it makes for very good watching!

And..oh did I mention the guys on the show are kinda easy on the eye too *wink*

Tempted by Temt
I'm sure I've mentioned before how much I love love love this shop. Actually I try not to go in too often, since it's not often I'll walk out again empty-handed. But when this cutie is only $15

and this lovely number was pretty reasonable too

really, I ask you, how is a girl expected to say no?!

The boys are back in town
On Wednesday I was just one of the 100,000 battling a drizzly and dreary Wellington day to celebrate our boys, our team, and that elusive Cup that has been 24 long years in the making.

And you know what I suddenly realised apart from of course...It's big and it's gold.

It's all ours for the next four years. Yeeeeeeeeee blimin haaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

You know you've turned into a Star Wars Mama when pics like these really tickle your fancy!

Labours of love
In between bouts of gale force winds and rain, we made our annual Labour weekend pilgrimage to the plant centre for our summer plant booty. Butter crunch lettuce, perpetual spinach, strawberries, cherry tomatoes, sugar snap peas, and courgette seedlings are all happily ensconced in their new home. This year, we're also trying to grow radishes and baby beets from seed. We haven't had great success growing anything from seed, so we shall see if they decide to sprout.

I'm also glad I spent the time and effort to stake the peas and tomato plants properly, I'm just hoping it was enough to survive the current battering wind we've been experiencing these past few days!

I can't wait to taste the first fruits (or should that be veges) of our labour. Grow well little garden!

The Help
Thanks to the loan of a friend, I finally got my hands on a copy of this book. And after hearing how much some of you have loved this book (Ange, PJ, Stacey), I  cannot. wait. to. read it.

Head on over to PJ's for more great Loving there!

Oh I LOVE Spooks also! So crazy the way they keep killing off the main characters!! Keeps one on one's toes though huh? ;)

It would have been so cool to get along to the Abs parade!

Ange (Tall, Short and Tiny) said...

Oooh, love the new clothes! That stripey dress is gorgeous.
Bet the parade was mad - in a good way!
Good luck with your veges; we're about to try growing things from seed for the first time (under the watchful and green-thumbed guidance of my dad) too, and I can't wait to see what we can produce.
Have a lovely weekend xx

Ms. Kate said...

I love Tempt too! Cutest little skirt. So jealous of your garden.. I NEED to get onto mine. Great list!

I finished reading the help this week. Loved it! Only had one criticism. Won't tell you though until you have finished reading it.

I love spooks too, but not so much the first couple of seasons. I really didn't like the main guy, too miserable really and full of too much angst to be a 'proper' spy!

Have you reached the later seasons? Don't remember when he first enters, but have you met Lucas yet? He is definitely the easiest on the eye ;0)

Nikki said...

So stoked the All Blacks won! Would've loved to have seen the parade!

Your dress looks fab!

Talk to you really really really soon!!!!


PaisleyJade said...

Oh wow, I love, love, love your new purchases! That dress looks so gorgeous on you and I love the leggings and shoes combined.

How great that you saw the celebratory parade and got some great photos too!
