I have snuck off. While Matt's reading in bed, I am sneaking in some time on the computer-tutor. I am some book-ish nerd, only with computers. It's the zing and the zap that gets me.

We're just back from a night out for dinner and a meander through our very favourite of all time, ever and ever and ever and then some book store, Ariel. If I was flush to the gills with cash-a-roo I would go absolutely berko in that book shop. As it is, I bought some Haigh's frogs for my lover and a funny little card. They have the very best selection of cards.

We had dinner at Fratelli Fresh Sopra. It is very, very good friends. I recommend everything on the menu. But not all at once. Tonight I had parmesan encrusted chicken, a side of brocollini with lemon and olive oil. For dessert, chocolate and hazelnut praline semi-freddo. A cappuccino tipped me over the edge and I had to make a fast getaway to grab some fresh air.

This time five years ago we were enjoying our first night as a married couple. Tomorrow we would be travelling to Byron Bay for our honeymoon, with our sweet little five month old firstborn snuggled in close to us.

Man I love the love.

What a lovely way to celebrate an anniversary. My husband has only been around for 2 out of 13 so far, hoping to better that rate after he leaves the Army. Have a lovely weekend, love Posie

Yep. There are those ugly people again.
I don't think I can visit here too often. Too darn hideous.
Happy Anniversary!!!!
