Cold beach

Did my usual walk and swim at the beach, once the weather fined up, but it was cold out of the sun and dark soon after 6pm.

Paul Hester

Monday, March 28th, 2005

I can't believe Paul Hester, the drummer from Crowded House, is dead. The news reports are conflicting. The Sydney Morning Herald said he hung himself in a park. The TV news says he died of a heart attack. I'm going to listen to "Don't Dream It's Over" and feel sad.


Sunday, March 27th, 2005

Despite what I wrote this morning, it warmed up this afternoon. I couldn't go to the beach, though, 'cos I had a prior engagement. A party over at my boyfriend's Mum's house, where I scoffed Easter eggs and bruschetta and many other things.

Daylight saving is over as of today, but summer has already been gone for some time. A low in the Tasman snuffed out summer like a candle, in this last week or two. I've been waiting for it to warm up again, but it's regularly only 14 degrees C in ...

Those boots!

Thursday, March 24th, 2005

I've seen some fantastic boots by Stella McCartney. Not sure about the rest of the outfit but...the boots! Ah! Then there's this outfit, also by Stella McCartney: I find it outrageously cute. Love the long jumper and the handbag with what looks like horse brasses on the strap. And those boots...

I hope I don’t regret this

Saturday, March 19th, 2005

Received a nice, accidental compliment last night. I was talking with one of the guys in my class about the degrees I’ve done and he said, “You’ve given your age away. I thought you were in your early twenties.” I nearly got up and danced for joy! I thought I was ...


Thursday, March 17th, 2005

I woke up this morning and it was dark, cold and raining. Well, not really cold as in 19 degrees C but that feels very cold when it's barely gotten below 20 degrees C in the last few months. When we lose daylight saving in a couple of weeks, it will ...
