Health exam for our Partner Visa and Margarita cocktails

Pretending to be a Dr

Spicy Margaritas are the best

The restaurant closed so the staff had to get us out true the staff-elevator. Kali found a security vest and thought it was a great idea to steal it.

A post from my last Thursday. It was different to say the least. I started with getting myself all the way to Parramatta. That´s like a 2 h train but I did not care at all. I had my Visa health examination there and I was ridiculously excited. This means one step closer to receiving our Partner or De Facto Visa!

My health exam was done in 3 steps. 1. X-rays, 2. physical check and 3. HIV-test. It takes around two hours and afterwards I met up with Ambrose ( he works in Parramatta) for lunch. We wanted to celebrate that we soon are “a normal/legal couple”. Ahh cant wait!

When he had to go back to work I went on a walk around the park and then did some dress shopping at Myer and David Jones. I do not like shopping and was exhausted after all the test and running around in a huge shopping mall.
Called my friend and we decided to meet up in Bondi Junction for dinner and maybe one drink. That plan went to hell very quickly. Many cocktails later, we were recommended by one of the waitresses to go dancing at this underground Latino club. I don’t even go to normal clubs these days, yet alone an underground club. That was many many years ago I did something that adventurous hahaha

But we had so much fun. Makes me laugh  just thinking about it actually. We dances all night together with the Latinos. Something about their music that makes you want to move 🙂

Now I need to get back to work, or volunteer work. Today I am in the office discussing next Thursdays Ball. Super excited for this event!

Ciao for now. Have a great day.

Puppy sitting and family weekend by the lake

I think I seriously have to learn how to blog on my phone. I feel totally behind with the “updates”. Anyway, here are some from this weekend. Or at least from Saturday and today, Sunday. Friday was a whole other story. Had 7 cocktails at a Mexican bar with my friend Kali, followed by dancing at an underground Latino club. We take that maybe tomorrow.

So Saturday we had plans to stay over at Leonard and Nick’s house and baby sit their new puppy Leggs. If you think he looks like a giant instead of a puppy it’s because he is a Grate Dane and is enormous already. We all plan to ride him like a horse when he is fully grown. Just kidding….

Afternoon walks. He was way more into Ambrose then me. hahaha

Leggs loves the water so we took him down to the lake to splash around some water.

The plan was to wake up early and rent two paddle boards on Sunday morning before meeting everyone for breakfast by the lake.

Because the kitchen is still under construction we had homemade BBQ burgers in the garden. For starters dips with crackers and veggies. We curled up on the couch with the puppy and watched the entire season one of FARGO.

Ambrose sister Anastasia and Xavier <3

As you can see we did not get to paddle-boarding on the lake. Instead it was breakfast by the lake with the whole family. 

After breakfast we took Xavier to play at the children’s playground. ( think the other parents at the playground thought we looked suspicious when walking in with ten grownups with only one child. Haha ) Back at the house for some video-gaming and to plan Christmas. We each picked a name from a hat. Decided to do secret Santa instead of one present to each person. I got Nick and I am happy with that. He should be easy to pick a gift for.

We finished our Sunday with a family dinner out at the terrace.  

My Australian family <3

How to increase your productivity and performance – step by step

Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs – Successful people to model

 

Today, as I was on the train back from my volunteer work, I came across a bunch of articles on Productivity & Performance. I find everything on how to improve yourself and how to be the best version of yourself very interesting.
If we are not evolving, progressing, learning, then whats the point?
Productivity is simply : get more done successfully with less effort. It was a whole lot of reading therefore I have just taken out some of the main points from what I’ve learned:

– Have a set time-frame and a clear plan. This will increase your chances to actually reach your goal.

–  Your goal must be specific and clear. And you must know WHY you want this goal to manifest. When you know why you want something, that will amplify your motivation and assist you to take necessary actions.

– Look over your daily habits. What are those small Rituals you have everyday? Are they benefiting you or are they driving you away from your goal? An example could be to set out a specific time for checking social media. This way you wont unconsciously waste your time and will instead gain more time to complete actions towards your goal. Another example is to put the clothes you are going to wear the night before. This “habit” or “ritual” will overtime save you hours in the mornings. Have you ever wondered why many successful people tend to wear the same outfit over and over? Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Obama, Steve Jobs. Read more about this HERE.

Next is a quick and relatively easy way to productivity and performance is often spoken of by Tony Robbins….

– Modeling. Robbins is over and over recommending people who want to get the most out of life to Model” other, already successful people. Find one or a couple of people you admire. Famous or not and study their behavior. How do they speak, how is their physiology. Do they spend alot of time choosing what outfit to wear in the morning? Will they snooze or wake up early to get more time to get to where they want. Are they willing to study and try to learn from people who know more then them or not? Do they spend a couple of hours a day scrolling true their phone, watching what others are up to?

– The last point I want to make is one from tony robbins.com. It is something he calls “chunking” and I will definitely start using this method in my life. Simplified chunking is: taking everything we have on our ” To Do Lists” and divide them into chunks, depending on where they belong. For example one for relationships, another for work/career and the third for health.
According to Tony once you have chunked these together it is easier to see what result you want.
I especially got motivated to start with Tony´s chunking after reading this ;

“When you start thinking of your to-do’s as clusters of desired outcomes, you’ll keep stress at bay and learn to focus on your greater goals, rather than getting overwhelmed of the minute details. Why? Because you will start to feel inspired, rather than forced to follow through. And when you feel so inspired by a purpose, you’ll come up with a more effective action plan to get there.”

Have a lovely day.xx

Perfect Sunday with beach and oysters

The “Mademoiselle” sandwich


At the Oyster Festival

Just back from a to the house. I had one of those perfect Sunday´s. You know one of those days without any particular plans, but everything just turns out to be perfect.

We started with my favorite breakfast at This Little Piggy. I’ve told you about this place waaayyyy too many times so I’ll stop. Not everyone gets crazy obsessed over a plate of food. I get that…..
After breakfast we drove to Ettalong. The Oyster Festivals was on and I always wanted to see it but somehow we missed it every time its on. We started by wine tasting. I choose to only taste cold, crispy dessert vines and a couple of port vines. It was way to hot for red vine. There was food stalls everywhere but we were only interested in oysters. they had a couple of  dressings to choose from. We tried “spicy passion fruit” on one oyster but nope. A pinch of salt and fresh lemon is the way to go.

Its started to get a bit too crowded for us, neither me nor Ambrose are very fond of crowds. Instead we drove to Killcare beach which is one of the best beaches around the coast. A couple of dips in the ocean was perfect for a hot day like this Sunday.

In the afternoon we have manage to squeeze in a short walk, a small trip around the coast and some grocery shopping  for tonight dinner. Now we are sitting with a bag of fresh lychee’s out in the backyard. Need to soak up the rest of this perfect Sunday and get some vitamin D from the sun.

It’s going to be nice to just relax for the rest of this evening. Yesterday was Cappa’s 30th birthday party all day. And around 7pm we were invited to a house party with my old colleagues from Barcelona.

Have a good afternoon everyone. xx

Sydney weekend activities thru my phone

I am back at the house. Ambrose went away to Newcastle last Saturday morning with 30 boys. They hired a farm for 3 nights for Bart’s buck’s party. As soon as he left I took the train to Bronte, neither Kali (Bart’s fiance) nor I wanted to be alone for 3 nights haha.

Our plans were to do absolutely nothing so cant say I did take too many pictures. I mean who want to see a couple of girls having wine and cheese, chitchatting while watching trash TV like The Kardashian’s?! That is mainly what we did but I did manage to get at least a couple of snapshots on my phone…..here is me on my loooooonnnngggg journey to the big city. It took me 2 hours and 46 minutes door to door!  Its ridiculous. It was raining one hour, and sunny the next, very strange. Luckily I had my Tony Robbins book and these Jacaranda’s trees to look at. Its hard to show you exactly how nice they really are just true my phone. I am in love with them and will for sure have them on my land when we buy a house. saturday night with the girls and alot of wine It started nice, I bought some wine and some dips. Amy came by and she also had bought some wine. Kali had already got some cheese, dips and of course a couple of bottles of wine…..
5 bottles later….. we were dancing, laughing, gossiping about what the guys were up to on the bucks party. We also helped Kali with her vows for the wedding. She read what she was gonna say and we all cried a little bit. hahha I haven’t had this kind of “girly” night in years. Us girls are so emotional! Jezus!
The second picture is from the next day. We went to bed at 2 am and woke up at 7 am. Me and Kali felt pretty good. Amy on the other hand…..

walking in bronte with girlfriends Needed to be carried clearly. hahahaha. I wasn’t even trying to get Amy and Kali in this picture. I was just obsessed with the Jacaranda tree

having sunday breakfast at eugenes in bronte

The three of us had breakfast at Eugene’s in Bronte. Well, me and Kali did. Amy ordered and as soon as the food came she left and sat outside. She was too sick to even see food. We teased her of course and we were too hungry and tired to keep her company poor thing.

the view over bronte in syndey is amazing After breakfast we went back home to just chill for a couple of hours. But as soon as the rain stopped we took the opportunity to go for a walk. One of my favorite activity to do in any city, especially in Sydney is to just walk around for hours. Look what nice spots you can find!

enjoying lunch at bronte beach in sydneyTime for lunch! We chose a Brazilian restaurant down by Bronte beach. I had the Brazilian Bowl, cant remember the actual name, but it was something slow-cooked which is my favorite type of preparation of food always.
Too bad you cant see how Bronte beach behind Kali in this picture. The camera of my phone just would not take it in unfortunately.
train back to the coast from sydney where you get to see the beautiful nature of sydneyOn Monday morning I went in to the office to do some volunteering. Only Marney was in and as always I love working with her. Met up with Kali after work, we got some red wine and ordered Indian home delivery. We spent most of Monday night planing a weekend away with some of our friends. Renting a house and just enjoying summer. We had a quite early night before I headed back to the house up the coast. Even if it takes forever on the train it is pretty beautiful here. Cant complain.

Now I have a lunch date with Ambrose. Three days has felt more like three weeks so want to spend as much time with as possible.
Have a nice day guys. Ciao

Hen’s Party at mrs Sippy

A very late post from last Saturday night – Kali’s Hen’s party at Mrs Sippy in Double Bay.
I can see from the pictures now after that we actually did this for 10 hours! My makeup slowly is getting messy and my eyes are getting blurry with every cocktail.
I might have mentioned it before that my favorite cocktail is whiskey sour. The bartender (poor guy, he must have alone made over 100 of cocktails for us ) recommended Amaretto Sour which I quickly swapped to, and stuck to for the rest of the hen’s party. How could I have forgotten about this tasty cocktail??

We started off at 1pm and I think I put myself and Nour into an Uber around 11pm. For Kali’s Hen’s party we started with our own are upstairs at Mrs Sippy. We had our own bartender and finger food for a couple of hours which was great.  I got to meet Kali’s family, more of her colleagues and friends, all fun so I know the wedding is gonna be great. If you think about it its not so much the place or anything else that makes an event amazing. Its the people. If they are fun, outgoing, kind, then every event can be really memorable. And that’s what I think will happen on their wedding day. Which is all you could ask for, and Bart & Kali really deserve it because they are great people.

We played games; “who said what” which is a game where we had to guess if either Kali or Bart said a particular statement. We all lost, mainly because Bart lied on most of the things! haha
Like this one for example; ” I do most of the dishes” – Bart said he does. I’ve never seen him even clean one cup!

Yep – more Amaretto Sour to the people!

Barts mum (in the middle/front) sent me this picture. haha such a good one

Pretty girls!


I think Mrs Sippy is a perfect venue for special events such as Hen’s, Bux, birthdays etc. Or even just a fun night out. HERE you can find out more about this venue.

Our party filled Saturday

Since I was too tired to do Saturday last night I thought we get on it right now instead.
We have not been out partying for such a long time so I guess that’s why I was totally wrecked on the Sunday. Or maybe it was that suspicious Indian “midnight snack” that Bart tricked us into having hahah. I have a picture of it, its not pretty.

Starting with breakfast in Manly with this wonderful person – Lisa. She honestly is one of those people you like to be around all the time!

Posing with mi amore. I am wearing a long dress which is pretty rare for me. But I got so many compliments for this dress so maybe I should continue in the long dress trend?After breakfast it was time for party number one : Chris & Jessica’s (Ambrose second cousin) engagement party. They chosen such a great spot. Loved this place, right by the water in Manly.

After all these years with Ambrose I’ve only met his family on his dad’s side. This is the first time I got to see his mum’s side of the family. It got a bit emotional, some of them had not seen Ambrose in years.
The plan was to stay only for a short while but we had so much fun spending time with the family so we were about 5 hours late to ….

party number two! Tim’s birthday at Gazebo in Kings Cross. These people had been partying for a couple of hours as you can see. But we got right into it. I had so much fun! Again, thank God for Ambrose’s friends and their girlfriends! Specially when I miss my girlfriends back in Europe. These girls are exactly as fun, the Australian version and its pretty great.

Everyone decided to have an after-party at Tim & RAchels’s place back in Kirribilly. And we were not popular when we told them we had to go to another party.

Hurried into yet another cab and here we are, at the third and last birthday party, with the next bunch of crazy people. As you can see from the pictures, the night got blurrier and blurrier. I have issues and always want sharp and crisp pictures. But what can you expect after hours and hours of party and celebration.
At this place all that that was left to do was to dance, to old classic bad songs that everyone knows the lyrics to. You know the kinds?

When you get a lap-dance from a bunch of lawyers but you don’t have a poker-face so you just stare at them uncomfortably…. hahaha I remember he danced, just for me, for a whole song. That’s a VERY long time when you are don’t know the person dancing for you!

Okey, the rest of the pictures are just way to blurry. I only had to show you what Bart recommended to take home as drunk food. Is that what its called in English, drunk food?? In Sweden we call it “fylle-käk” ahahah
I have to say, at the time, it tasted great. And the place was packed which always is a good sign for a restaurant. Just wondering if it was just packed with people like us that night. Alcoholics with no taste buds what so ever..
See you guys tomorrow. xx

Cozy Sunday with Sculpture by the Sea

Hey guys, just popping in to say hello. We have just finished out dinner – grilled sandwiches, non of us felt like cooking. Last night was amazing, we had one engagement party, followed by two birthday parties to attend to. So its safe to say we are making this Sunday as cozy and chilled as humanly possible.
We started the day with a long beach side breakfast with Bart and Kali in Bronte.
The whole day has been quite cozy actually. Besides the time we decides to do the walk from Bondi to Tamarama to see The Sculptures by the Sea. Its pretty amazing so if you are interested you can read more about it HERE.
But it was a sunny Sunday around the beautiful beaches of eastern suburbs. That means a couple of thousands of other people had the exact same idea as you… I don’t know if you can see it from the picture but there was people the whole way.
It was me, Ambrose and Kali, all tired, thirsty and very hangover. The last thing we wanted was to jostle with all those people. We decided to get some lunch instead. We chose Ramen, which has no become like a Sunday tradition for us.
Afterwards we were absolutely dead so drove back to their apartment to lie on the couch and watched Sex & the City for a couple of hours before driving back to the house.

Also got to see Kali’s wedding-dress. She picked such an beautiful dress, perfectly suited for her! I got goosebumps haha
Next week it her hen’s party. I need this whole week without alcohol because I know we will have alot of cocktails at the hens. I am such a week drinker. Cant handle anything!

Now: back to my cozy Sunday. Wonder if I can get this man next to me to watch some Sex and the City with me? I saw that he secretly enjoyed watching it back at Bart and Kali’s place. haha

Nature lover

Today I was listening to TED Talks and about energy’s and our conscious levels etc. Regardless what beliefs you have, one thing is sure – you do feel whether or not a place or person makes you feel at ease, or in discomfort. I don’t know how anyone could argue with that (?) I find that the more I deliberately focus on myself, my emotions, why I react the way I do and what triggers me to feel good vs bad.  The more I do that consciously, the easier it gets.

If a certain person, situation, or places drains you, takes all you energy and leave you exhausted … well you need to deliberately make the conscious choice to leave that person, situation or place. And if you cannot leave (perhaps it is a family member) then the next best thing is to avoid. Avoid as much as possible. In case of a person, it might be a good idea to, in a kind way mention this so they get a chance to change their negative and draining attitude.

One place that I have where I get energized, that always puts me in a better state is Nature. Of course this will be the same for many of you as well. How can it not! I have as long as I can remember been a nature lover. Maybe not the most outdoorsy girl, but I remember that I have always gone for a walk in the forest when I wanted to “get away”. As I lover of nature I do like all sorts of nature. My number one kind of nature if you like, is the forest. That part of nature is like a fairy tale, like magic. Maybe that’s why I loved The Lord of The Rings so much, specially the screens with the alive trees!

If there would be no spiders on the trees over here I would definitely sit and read under them. This bench have to to for now. I love the nature here in Australia, who wouldn’t. But with kind of nature comes all the little bug’s, and that ehhh I don’t love so much.

spontaneous date night

I have not been in here for a couple of days now. Sorry! I have to be better at this, I will, promise 🙂

I don’t have alot of pictures from this weekend, we have just been spending time with eachother and chilling out really. Its nice to have some weekends with no plans at all. To do what you feel like at the moment. One of the things I put on my “Daily Rituals List”, wich you can read about here, was to spend less time on social media. I wont say I am spending too much time on it, (some people are just crazy) but I still want to keep that to a minimum.

Anyway, lets jump back to Saturday, out unplanned date night. We slept until waking up with no alarms, had breakfast at Little Piggy’s and then drove to Leonard’s house. Their cousin Rebecka was coming to visit and we had a family lunch date with her and her kids. Last time I saw her was just in the beginning of me and Ambrose dating, so 4 years ago. Crazy. Ambrose brother, his partner came as well and they brought little Xavier. This kid seriously gives me energy, I cant get enough of him <3

So nice to see Rebecka again. Would have liked to have her living more closely so I could get to hang out with her more.
Afterwards on our drive back we saw that there was a football game on, or a soccer game as they called it over here.
Most streets was cut off, people were cheering and walking everywhere. The positive energy from big sports events are so contagious I think. We parked the car to go watch if there were any tickets available. But instead we found a random man just giving us 2 tickets for free! hahaha, long story…
This stadium is amazing! You have the national park on once side, and the waterfront on the other side and surrounded with palm trees. Beautiful Australia.

The last pictures you see is us ice skating. Or Ambrose ice skates and I am literately Bambi on ice. But this time he actually thought me how to do it! I think I am finally getting somewhere.
After the soccer game Ambrose suddenly was in the mood to ice skate?! Probably because he was high on sugar from the giant Melon Slurpee’s we had earlier…
So we ended our night with a spontaneous date down at the ice skater place, they had a “Disco Night” specials. But that clearly did not stop us haha. xx

Public Holiday

Due to lack of anything else, lets finish off with the end of our fun public holiday weekend….

Strolling around this beautiful city. Here we were in Balmain, with the CBD in the background.

Playing with little puppy “Leggs”. He is THE most sleepy puppy on this planet. This is his position 90% of the time haha. Cutie!

The bright yellow house. Makes me think I am back in the Mediterraneans every time I pass this building.

Clearly I am into colorful backgrounds. Need to stop, seriously.

When we woke up on Sunday morning I walked down the stairs to find these guys half collapsed everywhere in the living room telling stories from the night before. The laugh fest was on again! After showering we decided to go buy some take away breakfast and eat in the park.

Breakfast was followed by strolling around. We found this cool Art Deco store that had some really great pieces. Found a deep blue velvet couch I would not mind to have.
We went back to their house, sat in the sun in their backyard and reminisced pieces of the night that some of us seemed to have forgotten haha.

There was plans of going to the beach, mini-golf etc etc but we decided to drive back to the coast. Half way we turned around. Both of us were in desperate need of some Ramen at Rio’s. Luckily the line was not that long when we arrived.

On the road again in our Golden beauty. Ambrose got me hooked on my latest craving now…. Sour-Apple Slurpee. Amazing and totally worth the brain-freeze.

Now that the public holiday is over I am back on my daily rituals. It is quite hard to do breath exercises and stuff in somebody else’s house filled with people that are hangover! So this morning I did my Priming and went to a BodyPump class. Yesterday was a total disaster in terms of how I want to be. I regret it but I cannot undo it so the best thing is to just leave it and do better.

Kimberley & Nour’s Birthday Party’s

Here comes the stories on last night. And what a night it was! I honestly cannot remember laughing that much in a very very long time. It was fun from beginning to the end. We double booked and therefore had both Kimberley and Nour’s Birthday party’s going on last night. So we did what we had to, run between the 2 party’s and it clearly we made it work.

So we started here, at Jackson and Kimberley’s house. It was breakfast and cocktails at 10:30 am.  The cocktails were delicious (and strong!) After my 5th frozen strawberry, mint and lime daiquiri Kimberley brought out the champagne and mimosas and I knew I had to slow down a bit. Crazy Australians haha they sure know how to drink. I am still learning it feels like.
It was great meeting their friends who flew over from Brisbane. Such fun bunch of people, I had pain in my stomach from laughing so much with these people.

After a couple of hours of cocktails and laughter they went off to catch a boat and we went on to the next party, Nour’s birthday. We were a bit early so went to a couple of pubs with Kappa. Went back to his house for him to get changed. This took forever, here I am stuck drinking wine watching kappa ironing his shirt and Ambrose collapsing outside. I probobly mentioned this before but Ambrose needs like 18 hours of sleep and he probably only got 17,5 hours the night before. So he had to catch up some sleep… Zzzzzzzzzz

Finally we got to here – Cafe del Mar on the harbor in Sydney. Beautiful place with yes more delicious cocktails. Luckily we all ordered some finger-food.
I often remind myself how lucky I am that Ambrose’s friends are amazing. I really like ever single one of them. And all there partners. I am so lucky.

The clock turned 8:30 pm and like two Cinderellas it was time for us to join party number one again. Kimberley had made reservations at a restaurant called Meat District Co.
The guys were already on it as we walked in. After 5 hours celebration on a boat, and with us celebration with Nour at Cafe del Mar, it is safe to say that was one hectic dinner party hahaha. Actually surprised they did not kick us out.

After many hours we had way too much fun for any of us to want it to end so somehow we took ourselfs to a place called SlipIn, I was told this is the place Princess Mary met the prince of Denmark. Now after being at the SlipIn No idea how and why a prince was hanging out at this place?! We went in and the whole place was packed with Indians, without exaggeration, it was maybe 85 percent Indians. I blended in but my white friends looked like they were reporters from National Geographic lost in Mumbai hahaha.

So it was time to take some Ubers back to the house for whiskey, story telling and playing video games. The last thing I remember was laughing before falling asleep on Ambrose’s chest.

Thank you Kimberley and Nour for organizing such great night.

Sleepless in Sydney

My day so far has been great. Except I could not manage to fall asleep, last time I looked at the clock it was almost 2 in the morning! And I wanted to get up at 6am to get my things done without any stress. Well that did not happen. I got up just before 8, did my Tony Robbins Priming (as I do every morning) then after breakfast I went outside and watched the car. Holy crap its tiring to wash a car 🙁
Then I cleaned up, changed the sheets and did 2 loads of wash.
After that I had a shower, which I needed, I was a mess haha.
Then I was off to Sydney. I got to borrow my friends apartment for the night so I don’t have to get up super early to drive to the airport tomorrow morning. Ambrose is FINALLY coming home. I have handled him being away pretty good but enough is enough. I want my love back now.

Tonight I met my friends Ninnie for a glass of wine, followed by dinner. She is from Sweden, we met while working together at my old job TMC in Barcelona. Now she is gonna live here for I think at least 4 years. Which is great because then I get to see her more often.
Now I’m lying here watching MasterChef Australia and I am actually crying….Who the hell cries over MasterChef!?!
I’m telling you, I need Ambrose back. My whole system is messed up since he’s been gone.

Just a few more hours!

Tomorrow is gonna be 32 degrees. Guess Ambrose brought the weather with him from Bali. We have Nic’s graduation part at midday at Leonard’s house. Hopefully little Xavier is gonna be there as well, that woul definitely make the day perfect. He is growing up way to fast.

one real and one fake blond girl

 

I just had a shower and cant wait to start the day. Its sunny outside so I am excited for this Sunday to get started. Today’s plans are to drive up the coast with Kim and show her that part of Sydney. She is originally from Brisbane and so she has not been up there. Our fist stop, after a take away coffee of course is to meet up with my friend, who also lives in Brisbane, for breakfast.
Mia and Tim recently had their baby and I cannot wait to meet her in person!
Afterwards we will probably drive around the coastal area and stop and maybe Soldiers Beach but also Killcare. Two of my absolute favorites. Cannot wait to show Kim.

Here are some pictures of our day in Balmain yesterday. We picked up our coffee, well I did, Kim doesn’t  drink hot beverages. And she don’t like red wine, chocolate nor shellfish!? Crazy girl. Anyway, she drove me to this place just by the water and we went for a walk in the sun, taking in this beautiful view. The colorful houses made me feel like I was back in Europe. Doesn’t it remind you of Denmark or Holland?

After it was time for lunch. We walked up and down Darling Steet to try and find a place but it was so hard. Every damn place looked amazing! In fact that whole street was just amazing, cant wait to be bring Ambrose here.
Finally we picked Kafeine. We both salads, I think Kim had satay chicken with crispy noodles and I had pulled duck sallad. Both very very nice.
Now: Off to the coast. xx

________________________________________________

Balmain

Its Saturday morning, well actually soon its midday. I am staying at my friend Kimberly’s house for the weekend, right now she is busy adopting two of her rabbits to a family downstairs so I thought I take the time and write in here until she is done. I call her the crazy rabbit lady:)  She has a couple of them now, those cute little furry things.

Fridays lunch in Crows Nest. I decided to spend some time in Crows Nest instead of the city yesterday while waiting for Kimberly to pick me up after work. I don’t know why but I really like this area. Its not big but always vibrant, full of small stores and crazy many cafe’s and restaurants to choose from .Its just perfect. If you are ever in the area, Crows Nest is a must. I am currently cutting out gluten to see if I feel better so for lunch I had a chicken salad with cabbage,coriander, cabbage, mint and spicy sauce on the side.

This is Kimberly and her partner Jackson’s apartment in Balmain. Isn’t it lovely?!  I especially love this type of doors/windows. Last night we wanted to stay in so we filled the house with cheese, wine and dips, followed by takeaway Thai.

Kimberly and Jackson are airbnb hosts so they have all the skills. This is my bedroom for the weekend. Love having my own ensuite bedroom. Woke up feeling I was in a hotel haha. We just finished our eggs and bacon breakfast. I can hear that they are about to wrap it up downstairs so I better get going. And I can see that the sun is finally deciding to show her face so I think first stop of the day will be a big coffee at some nice cafe’. Maybe close to the harbor… hmm lets see what I can get Kimberly to agree on. See you guys later, have a lovely day.

Thinking specially today about John Glad who had a open heart surgery a couple of days ago. My cousin (his wife) sent us the pictures that the surgeons took during the operation.
All I can say is WOW! Very grateful that he is in recovery doing great after all that ♡♡♡
