It’s been a busy few weeks in the land of ZoSews! Unfortunately not a huge amount of sewing has been done, but I do have a shiny new dress that I’ll share soon.
So far this year I’ve been back to work after Xmas, then on holidays again, and now back to work again!
In amongst that I completed Tough Mudder (22km obstacle race), spent a week at the beach (bliss!), went to the Australian Open, celebrated Australia Day, went the zoo, started French lessons, went to moonlight cinema for the first time, attended a wedding, started ballet and sewing for the year and finished a certain By Hand London dress on a crazy deadline. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know what I’m talking about!
Anyway, I thought I’d share with you guys what I’ve been up to and why I’ve been absent from blogland.
The weather has been fairly stunning here in Melbourne (sorry cold northern hemisphere folks!), which made for a brilliant week at Phillip Island with Mr ZoSews, his two mini people, plus Mr ZoSews’ sister and family.
Here’s a picture if the beach at the end of our street where we spent many an afternoon. The tide is waaay out, when it was in it came up to the pebbles. I attempted surfing here – which was a huge fail given that my body was still recovering from Tough Mudder at the time!
And more beach…
Wineries, fishing, food, cocktails, barbeques and beach and backyard cricket also featured this holiday.
As did Tough Mudder. If you’re considering it, do it. It was so much fun!!! See…
In and around Melbourne
As well as turning into a beach bum at Phillip Island, Ive been up and about in Melbourne.
At the tennis… We were treated to a brilliant early round five setter.
And at the Zoo…
What have you all been up to? I’ve been trying to get outside as much as possible while the weather’s good!!
