My blog has been quiet.. it's been a busy and stressful week... work and helping Jay (bf) with his final assignments. I'm just so exhausted mentally.... and I'm sooo happy my weekend's been great!

Nothing much to say about my actual week... but I had an awesome Friday night and Saturday and a pretty good Sunday so far!

Friday night - I caught up with my daily cards... Had no time to create or scrap anything at all, all week and I was seriously gasping to play with all my scrappy stuff. Friday night I stayed home and just chilled... just me with a chick flick on in the background, doing my daily cards and surfing the gallery at SIStv. Went to bed pretty early for a Friday night too! I think my body really thanked me for that!

Saturday morning I met up with the usual brunch crew - Adri, Lala and Andy. We went to Parade Cafe for brunch. I had the Grand Parade - my indulgence for the week.

Yummy! I couldn't even finish it at all.. so Andy polished it off for me! LOL! I love the food at Parade Cafe.. and even more amazing, all the beautiful artwork by local artists they display and sell. Unfortunately I didn't get pictures.. I don't think I'd be allowed to. But the good news is I got awesome inspiration... that's a bonus!

After brunch all of us walked to Te Papa (the museum) to have a look around. There were Maori events going on there - hangi cook off, haka performances and all. Took this photo at the overseas terminal. It was a really beautiful sunny winter day... really cold.. but nonetheless sunny and bright. I was really happy to be able to get nice pics! :D

One of my friends, Gabriel came down from New Plymouth for the weekend. He and another friend of ours, Pan, came to meet up with me at Te Papa. We sat and had a coffee and then took a walk to Oriental Bay to take a few more pictures. I love jumping shots.. those are my obsession lately! LOL! I am really happy with how the pics turned out.

After it became too dark and too cold for any more pictures, the three of us went to Breakers to play pool. It felt like old times... I used to play pool with these guys every Friday and Saturday... but since all our other friends have left and Gabriel moved to New Plymouth.. we've not actually played pool together for a really long time. Good times.. I really like the photo Gabriel took of me... Hehehhe.. I thought it was really cool to see the movement of the balls. :D

Stayed home and caught up with all my daily cards.. and pretty much did the same on Sunday too! I'm now totally up to date!!! :) Will post them soon...:D So that's pretty much the summary of my weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
