Good Weekend

I had a lovely weekend despite the depression and worked at relaxing and looking after myself. It takes effort with depression, but if you think it do it, it certainly helps. Friday night I ate junk food and watched some dvds I'd been wanting to see and went to bed early. Saturday I went and looked at a new Ecological shop and borrowed some books at the library, then spent the afternoon drinking wine, cooking pasta and reading. Very relaxing!

Sunday Chris, Marni, Kate and I went to Herring Island for a picnic and then to the Royal Botanical Gardens for coffee. Taking the ferry to the island must be the shortest boat trip in history! . I made a yummy Waldolf salad and some pumpkin scones (the pumpkin was from an awesome friend's veggie patch! We took the ferry over to the island and had a lovely time. Here's some pics:

The island....

Me and my bridesmaids...not that I'm sure I will actually have any....


Natives....




Beautiful palm trees, but strangely incongruous with Australian natives and sky scrapers....


Chris looking strangely dignified drinking coffee!


Kate gave me this beautiful set! They are from Finland and have been passed down through her family so I am extremely honoured. She also gave me some wonderful fabric of her grandmother's which I may make into a quilt.
