Today is inner city guild meeting, which I am missing because my husband is in Ireland spending precious time with his gravely ill mother. It's an unspeakably sad situation. He was supposed to come back tomorrow but has had to extend his visit for a few more days.
Which leads me to remember that last month at the meeting, I was presented with a prize that I'd won on PomPom's blog. I had forgotten about it, so it was a happy suprise when Sally gave it to me.
Look what was in the bag!
Sally had bought it when she herself was visiting the UK on sad family matters in May. It's a beautiful alpaca/wool/sparkle laceweight in the most gorgeous royal blue. Boxed and numbered in true limited edition tongue in cheek fashion. I love it!
Next weekend though, I'm escaping to the city with some friends, staying at the flash raddisonblu that I booked via mystery 5 star deal on wotif.com to enjoy the sights and nightlights of the big smoke, before heading off to yummy yumcha at sky phoenix, hopefully some shopping at zara, and then on to the whole point of the shebang - the Sydney WWKIP event.
