Cheers!

I t has been so long since my last post, a trip home to the Sunshine Coast to see the parents and then a hectic week of catch up at work have really limited my blogging time. So here is a quick update of what Ms Bendi has been up to.

1. Went to the SC for 4 days. Highlight of the trip was raiding my Mum's craft room. Ok who are we kidding there are several craft rooms in that house!! Photos to follow of the goodies I brought back. Lowlight of the trip, well it was only what I couldnt fit in my bag to bring back! Namely one dress makers dummy. DAMN!

2. I had my first Gin & Tonic (and several since!). I finally bought a bottle of gin, Bombay Sapphire to be precise. My methodology (that one is for you BP!) in selecting the gin was the colour of the bottle. I am really into blue at the moment. So here is a pic of the first G&T, cheers to you all (especially S&L, BP and Bells).


3. I have been trying to make it up to Princess Meena for leaving her for 4 days. She is being very cute, following me around since I have been back. Here is a pic of her, finally got her to sit still.



4. Finally thanks to those of you who made kind comments on my last post. I was feeling a little sheepish about acknowledging my crushes, all those teenage insecurities very briefly resurfaced (will they think I am weird etc, until I realised that I am a bit weird and I like it!) But then I thought hey, if I have a craft crush I am damn sure loads of other people do too! And you do, I heart that about you all! This whole craft community we have going really energises me! I love it! Well there I go gushing again! Stay tuned as I will be regularly unveiling those people who make me go weak at the knees with good wholesome Craft crushes!

Your darling kitty and I share a name- well sort of, Mina (taken from Bram's Stoker's Dracula) is a knick name of mine.
She's adorable. I have never heard of a cuddly kitty, I thought they usually were mean when owners got back from being away for a while. Maybe my family just always had vindictive cats. . . which might explain why I am a dog person.

Have a good week!

Meena looks so cute! (you know my thoughts on G+T...you're putting fresh lime in too aren't you?)

Oh Meena is pretty!!

Hooray for G&Ts! Even if it's cold when we finally meet up, we must have one (or two, or three or whatever....he he)

bugger about the dummy!
