So this post is a bit of a catch-up post as I've been quite busy the past week or so with lots of events and birthdays and packing for my hols! In exactly one week I'll be back in Australia to visit my friends and Aunt and Uncle, and I literally cannot contain my excitement!! I keep remembering things I want to do and places I want to eat, and getting really excited about these small little things like waking up and hearing the crows crowing away, and going back to my old school to visit my old headmistress (sad, eh).
I haven't been back over there for a year and a half, life has just gotten in the way - I had my final year of Uni and then I started my new job, so this is the longest time that I've been away from Aus in the past 6 years, and I've been having major withdrawal symptoms.
Even though I leave in less than a week, I just haven't been able to wait for some of the goodies I'm looking forward to, so I got some TimTams from Cybercandy in Covent Garden, and then a while ago they sent me some Starburst babies (best things ever) to try out too. I loveee Cybercandy, I visit their Covent Garden store quite a bit. The sweets arrived really quickly and as usual they taste ah-mazing! I'd definitely recommend trying them out!
So anyway, as I'm staying with my Aunt and Uncle and will have my lappy and internet access, I'll be live-blogging from Australia for the 2 weeks I'm there starting from next weekend. So expect lots of posts about my favourite restaurants, beaches, and of course my amazingly awesome Aussie friends! Really hope you all don't mind me posting about my trip loads, it's just for 2 weeks and then it'll be back to London life, my birthday, and the start of the summer and London season - YAY!
Apart from packing, buying a new suitcase (why are they so expensive?!), and work, I had a friends birthday dinner at the Carlton Club on Friday, and another friends birthday at Roof Gardens last night - both were super fun! Here are some pics;
Oh - I'm now on Instagram! I have hardly any followers, so follow and I'll follow back; luxy_c
Then the following night (after waking up that morning hungover, fully clothed and with my coat still on, on my friend's sofa) it was on to Roof Gardens!

How has your week and weekend been? Hope you've all had a good one!
Also - Cymru am byth! Very happy Wales won the Rugby yesterday. I'm half Welsh so I support Wales in Rugby and England in Football ;)
Talking of Wales and being half Welsh, that reminds me, a very happy 80th birthday to my beautiful Grandma! We celebrated with her last week - we took her for a wonderful meal at Quaglino's before going to see Singin' in the Rain at the Royal Albert Hall. She loved every minute and couldn't stop raving about Quaglino's, so I'd definitely recommend a trip there! My Grandma is one of the most inspirational people I know, she's so full of life and has such a fab outlook on everything - love her to pieces!
