Heya APJ Crew,
Whirlwind week. Perfume and peeps, art and travel to Adelaide with Jin, Eve and Lola. There’s been loads of great food and adventuring. Life has been very good to us, now I need a bloody rest.
Scent Diary: 8.1 – 14.1.2018
It’s late Sunday night. Came home, got out of drag, chatted with Jin as he went off to sleep, spent a couple of hours doing nothing on the internet, spritzed some Oliver & Co Ambergreen and I’m off to watch TV
Up at sparrows fart.
Caught the bus & train to the Art Gallery and met up with Sue and Marion. We wandered the Dutch Masters and then had some lunch.
Afterwards we caught the ferry round to Marion’s in Rose bay where we met up with her family. Chatter turned into afternoon tea, turned into dinner. It was a sensational day.
I got home completely buggered and still had to write Trivia Q&A.
Finish Trivia Q&A about 2am. Still 28C. Jin is asleep on the couch with the AC on and a ceiling fan above him. I join him.
RAINING! Like looking into a fishtank. Jin can’t ride his bike in this weather and his car needs fixing so I drive him to the station at 4am.
Just getting back to sleep, it’s 6.45 and the Doorbell goes! Freaking delivery.
OK, spritz some CHANEL Antaeus. LOADS of it.
Finally, I think I have one hour and 15 minutes to sleep and I’m dozing. Suddenly I’m bolt upright in a sweat. Haven’t edited Val and Erica’s posts into the blog for today & tomorrow. SHIT! I have NEVER worked so fast to get two posts in before.
Whores bath. walk the dogs, get them in the car and go collect Anna-Maria for our days adventure on my way to the dog trainers where the boys will be spending the next week. On our way to the gallery we stop at Mrs Macquarie’s Chair for a photo. Best spot in Sydney for it.
BACK to the Dutch Masters with Anna-Maria at AGNSW. It’s even better the third time, I feel like I know the works, have heard them described and stories of their creation. Now I get to look, with my knowledge, and drink in the magic and majesty. So good.
We grab some lunch and spritz a decant of Le Labo Jasmine 17 because it’s in my bag and I love it.
Bubble bath. Rainkissed Leaves by Bath & Body Works.
10.30pm and our flight is cancelled tomorrow. MAD SCRAMBLE to get new tickets and organise Eve & Lola.
Instead of 7am flight we are now leaving 3pm. Lazy morning on computer, doing post, hanging with Jin. Very nice.
Guerlain L’Homme Ideal Cologne. Eve was very impressed and enjoyed it, complimenting me when we hugged hello.
Arrived Adelaide safe & sound. Went for dinner and then a walk up Rundle Mall.
Our apartment is very nice.
Today is our first full day of Adelaide Holiday. Each day one person gets to decide the activities. We gave this first day to Lola and she filled the day to the brim.
I wore a few spritzes of CHANEL No 19 Parfum today. It held up beautifully well into the afternoon and then I lost it BUT when I took my shirt off to shower at midnight I could still smell the oakmossy/vetiver far dry down.
Jin cooked Bacon and French Toast
Beachhut Fun Park. Dodgem Cars, Putt Putt Golf, Water Dodgems, Arcade Games, Water Slide Tubes
Stand Up Paddleboards while Jin & I were ankle deep.
Mojitos and cards. We hung out at Boards On The Pier and had the BEST Mojitos I’ve ever had, they were so delicious Jin tried to steal mine.
Met up with our girlfriend Carol from the Ghan for frappes and chocolates then wandered around Glenelg for a bit.
Eve & Lola cooked Beef, Noodles and Greens Stir fry, bloody delicious. Coles faux Almond Magnum Ice Creams for dessert
Watched Tom Cruise & Emily Blunt in Edge of Tomorrow from 2014. Excellent action Sci-Fi.
Blogged, Showered, Bed.
Super spritzed Phaedon Tobacco Rouge. Especially YUM for our cooler day today. Clouds and rain but still comfortable and warm enough.
Central Market where we had Kimbab Korean Sushi for breakfast, and I had a Potato Topped Pie.
Then we went to some wineries, lunch at Maggie Beers, more wineries and home by 5.40pm. Jin and Eve were happily boozy and I was designated driver. While they were boozing Lola and I played cards and met the wineries dogs. As you can see Jin went from happy smiling person to rancid drunken mess, he was so funny.
Dinner was a Soy Chicken Thigh, Onion and Wilted Baby Spinach with a Potato, Bacon and Cauliflower Cream side. We had Piper Heidsieck champagne.
Then we watched Dr Strange movie and bed. BIG day.
Got up and had breakfast. Mushroom, Onion, Gruyere Omlettes, Toast and Salad. More Phaedon Tobacco Rouge
Walked to the Adelaide Zoo in time for it to open where we had a guided tour till 11am when the Giant Panda feeding and information event happened. Then wandered around till about 12 till we discovered the Sausage Sizzle and Hot Chips rotunda. Four hungry people fed for $20!
Uber-ed up to the Central Market where we had Crepes and Coffees.
Wandered back to the apartment. Spent a while recalibrating and then Jin and Lola decided they would stay around.
Eve and I wandered down to the South Australian Art Gallery and took a tour.
Dinner around the corner from our apartment in Peel St. Super cool and rocking even early, we had TUMMT burgers and a few drinks. Very chill and fun, yes we played more cards.
Tonights movie was the very enjoyable Suicide Squad.
Sorry. Few pics or story.
Got our stuff together, jumped on a plane. Wore CHANEL No 19 parfum. it was cool and perfectly poised.
Train and bus to Parramatta. 30 minutes at home and then off to Trivia at Austral BC.
