Lotsa lace

Rohan (the boyfe) Katherine (the smexy beast who's been in some of my posts this week) and I are heading back to the Central Coast tomorrow (unfortunately not via my bands gig at Symposium Bar, which was cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. Hopefully we'll be able to play there in the near future! ) We've had a fabulous week full of relaxing, catching up with friends, painting, indulging in way to much netflix, finding awesome new musicians , and discovering fun new toys like Rory's Story Cubes and Kinetic Sand.

Let me tell you about the wonder which is Kinetic Sand. It's this odd sand which is a 2% polymer mix which gives it these odd non Newtonian fluid like properties, but it's not wet or sticky. I found it in a small toy shop on our first day, and was thinking about the purchase all week. (I caved today, and I'm glad I did. This stuff is the greatest). I have a lot of trouble keeping my hands still, so this will be great for me.

Goodbye Kiama, and thanks for the awesome week! <3

Weekend away in Byron Bay!

I've not been posting for a few days. I have a perfectly valid explanation for this! If you follow my band on facebook or twitter you would know that we made our way up the east coast on Saturday morning to Byron Bay so we could play a gig at the Railway Friendly Bar.

We left Newcastle at 7:00 am, and after a very very long drive, made it to Byron about 5:00pm. The venue checked us into a hotel across the road, and then we had a rehearsal on their balcony.

Day 2 consisted of Busking, followed by Beach Times, followed by Gig times. (Not to mention it was hot and sticky) The Gig was so much fun! We played 3 x 45 min sets, and performed some new pieces. We also caught up with various family members and family friends. (My Aunt and Uncle Margaret and Kerry came who I haven't seen in a very long time, as well as Tim's mum, and some of Tim's family friends)

We started driving back Sunday night but ended up sleeping at Tim's parents place (Which is probably a 3 or 4 hour journey from Byron) because 1) We were really exhausted and 2) it started pouring and it was hard to see. We finished off our journey on Monday, and when we got back I sort of collapsed on Tim's lounge. I did eventually get up/have a shower/ get dressed. This was my final outfit this weekend:

I would have posted yesterday, but I was half dead all day.
