The last day of summer. I am really bummed. Usually I'd be happy to see a shift to cooler days and nights and the promise of days spent digging in the garden, sans mosquitoes and sweat pricking my skin.
I WENT TO... University. Yes, 20-something years on from an undergraduate degree I am going back to school. It's hard. Really hard.
I ATE... Two birthday dinners. One at Bombini, on the NSW Central Coast, and one (thank you Virginia) at Jamie's Italian, in Sydney. Both were a lovely treat.
I OP SHOPPED... It's my favourite haul of the month, a 1980s cotton dress screen printed by artists from the Tiwi Island's Bathurst Island print dress.
I MADE... This should read 'I repaired'. Knowing how to sew means you can also mend and I've been replacing old elastic in waistbands and hemming up linings. Often the things I find at the op shop need just a simple repair. A dropped lining in a Veronica Maine dress was an easy fix and with a little unpicking and a hand sewn hem, it was as good as new.
I READ... Chapters and chapters of university texts. I'd forgotten about the intensity of reading and the tricky science that is referencing.
