I wasn’t here yesterday, but I have the most AMAZING excuse.

Yesterday I had the perfect pleasure of escorting the most beautiful Jessica Tremp and her equally stunning partner in evening explorations during their first visit to New York City!

We ate Italian food and gossiped until we gasped for breath. We hugged and shook our heads and widened our eyes at stories and I’m fairly certain tears of joy were involved at some stage.

I love my family in Australia. The way my story goes, I went to that continent for one person. That one person dropped me on my face. And I was picked up by a group of the most divine, sparkling, oozing with talent loving collection of cult.

And I am literally thankful every single day – I think they know that too. x

This morning I woke up, sat in front of my computer, and slightly hyperventilated. There were thoughts in my head like:

“And I need to get the puppies here, and I need to finish my book, and there’s stuff at work that needs doing, I’m fairly certain I’m meant to be making some type of decision at the moment… etc”

To control this situation, which occurred around 7am because I’m up early every day for no reason at all, I took a bubble bath. There was sea salt and fresh herbs involved. Then I rubbed Hawaiian honey ginger lotion into my arms until they smelt like a garden – and finally I slopped mud on my face.

Because facials fix everything.

I must note, however – even during “relaxation” time my brain doesn’t stop ticking.

I read something interesting in the bath.

Happy 11 11 11 kids!!
