Friday night was quiet but I did watch Better Homes and Gardens, and then my new favourite show - Selling Houses Australia. I admit I do occasionally end up feeling a bit smug that we did buy one of those houses without the "Shayna Blaze dressing"- and paid less because of it. I always wonder if the people who did buy the houses see it on TV and curse that they could have bought it cheaper.
Then this morning my productiveness (is that a word? Probably not) began. A trip to the Orange Grove Markets was first order. I have blogged about the markets before (read it here) - I'm not so interested in the organic produce (after all I am trying to grown my own!) but the plants and flowers are good. So today's purchases were cauliflower and broad bean seedlings, and a kaffir lime tree.
So turns out I could carry a tree after all #gardening #tree Kaffir lime means we can use the leaves already! pic.twitter.com/UIHlotQtFh— Crooked Cottage (@crookedcottage1) June 13, 2015

I took a few more photos of my garden - just because some of the flowers are looking lovely, even if it is June and the middle of winter here!

So that was just the morning! I had lunch with a friend and a wander through Rozelle.
And then this evening I was lucky enough to go to see the screening of the film "Women He's Undressed" as part of the Sydney Film Festival at the Hayden Orpheum in Cremorne. I went with another friend who was able to get tickets through her work. It's a documentary, directed by Gillian Armstrong, who was at the screening. The film was great, and I've never been to the Orpheum before - it's beautiful. Definitely recommend checking it out!
