Greetings from the Southern Highlands

Well it is rather cold down here, and I am loving it. I think some people usually prefer cold or warm weather, but I like both, for different reasons. In the summer, you can feel the warm sun on your face, get to go to the beach, and you have great weather all around for outside stuff. But in the winter, it seems to be more contemplative. It's great weather for reading, cups of tea, and crocheting, three of my favourite things. You get to snuggle under squishy doonas (well you do if you're in the Southern Highlands for the weekend- note the recurring personal obsession!).

Today Jonathon and I took a trip into Bowral. I love Bowral. It has that old town kinda charm. We had some great coffee, and then went and had a look at a store down here that sells Pandora jewellery. Clicky here. Pandora jewellery is basically a new way of doing charm bracelets, and they are absolutely gogeous. Anyway, Jono had been wanting to get me one for a birthday or Christmas present but we weren't sure what size bracelet I'd need (I have very tiny wrists!). So we went in for me to have a look and to try on a bracelet for size. Anyway, the lady at the shop found a bracelet that would be about my size and told me to just pick out a few charms to put on it so I could see how it would fit. Jonathon chose a charm from the few I had picked, and bought it for me right there and then, along with the bracelet. It's absolutely beautiful, so I'll have to show it off next time I'm around. And now he can buy me charms for Christmas and birthday and stuff. I think I forgot to mention the charm I got- it's a fish- we can't decide if it's a gold fish or a koi (carp), but either way, it doesn't really matter. I called the fish "Sakana", which is Japanese for "fish". Very original.

Pole class last night was good. We've been tinkering with our routine a bit coz we learnt a new move last night, called the "cresent moon". I should have taken a photo but I didn't bother coz I only had a 16MB memory card, which actually could have fit quite a few photos, but I was just being lazy

So that is what I have been up to for the past 2 days or so. Am very much enjoying my time down here, as always.
