Today I woke up to a new Prime Minister. This morning Australia ushered in its first female, unmarried, childless, (red-headed) and non-relgiously-affiliated prime minister. I feel generally neutral on the whole matter, but our first female prime minister is quite a landmark. It took this long?! What is it 1950? Later today C and I walked up to Maitland Road to peek in at a new vintage clothes store that has opened in our suburb, Lil & Me. I had seen the shopfront earlier in the week with my mum while it was closed and I had already spotted something I knew I had to have in the window. We met the shop's lovely owner and I came home with two totally fabulous red vintage dresses which I will have to show you tomorrow. Not cheap, but very worth it. I hope that there are shops like this one to be discovered in Launceston. We had dinner with C's brother's family and I changed into one of my new dresses for the walk home. It's very Zooey Deschanel. On a totally unrelated matter, I made up a new blog header and I'm trialling it for a week to see how it goes. What do you reckon - a yay or nay? :)
