Brrr it's so cold ! I heard a few people say this morning was the coldest morning so far this Winter - I don't know about that so much I only know it was jolly cold. And it's cold again now. The day warmed up a bit and sitting in the Board Room for the MondayMorningMeeting I nabbed a seat in the sunshine and it felt so lovely - making me wish I was a cat all stretched out on the carpet in that pool of warm sunlight.
I came over all tea parties last night. Thinking about redesigning thejamjar (would never commit by actually saying i'm redesigning it) I thought of what I like and it ended up being toast and white tableclothes, fine bone china cups and saucers and lovely kitchens. I did the whole "there should be jamjars here" but decided it's my site and I can do anything I blimin' well like.
So today, I went to The Warehouse [the warehouse, where everyone getsabargain] to buy doilies. I only needed one but I feel the need to be a girl and put a doilie of some sort on here for the Spring. Rosie said she'd like to come, and James and Todd followed us down to Downtown. We mingled at first not quite sure who was doing what (four people is harder than two at figuring stuff out) until I made a break for it and ran (read: walked) to the ATM and checked I had money in my account. Sweet-as-bro I had doilie money so it was off upstairs to The Warehouse. The cloth doilies were easy to find but I needed the paper ones and I found those in the stationery section. Todd and James and Rosie still in a drizzle of a tow, we went sweet shopping but managed to lose Todd along the way, finding him sitting on a chair on the other side of checkout with his new airing rack. Back downstairs I decided to actually withdraw money from the ATM. "Haven't we been here before?" yes but now I'm getting money and the other got food and Todd found a table and James ate his too-hot-panini thing and Rosie had a pile of asian that seemed to hit the spot and Todd had some orangey soupy curry-ee thing with what looked like gum leaves sticking out but he said they were Chillies and I had a lime milkshake and we ate lunch. After, we wandered up to HotShots coffee barrow thing behind the ANZ Tower but it was shut so we carried on over to Serious Espresso for coffees-to-go and went back to work. And it was just as nice and just as exciting as it sounds :)
I was pleased to find the boysonropes dangling off the Quay Tower this afternoon. Out there in the chilled air and warmed sunshine. Rosie said it was unfortunate that winter - boys-on-ropes wore jeans but there you go, can't have our intrepid climbers freezing their kneecaps off.
