Thursday Afternoon in Newtown:


Jodie, Hannah, Tom and Phil chill in the hippie gazebo.


Jimmy refused.


But we got a group photo!


We went to the pub. Brett's cool shades broke.


He stole mine instead.


Nick was there.


So were Arthur and Ali.


Woo!


We discovered the most fantastic beer. Sir, bow to the majesty of your Pint of Justice!


And, yeah, this weird lady.

Saturday morning, Jodie and Phil and I went into the city.


Oh but first we had to take this picture.


We found these underwears in the markets!


Then we all headed to Ben's for cocktails and pizza!


Exciting!


Chief Bartender Brett knows how to double wield his weapons.


Jimmy prefers a milkshake.


Mm.

Sunday was Fancy Bocce day! The rules: everyone had to dress up heck of fancy and act totally classy while we swanned around town doing classy things like eating pancakes and then going for a leisurely stroll around Sydney harbour to the Botanical Gardens and then flopping on the grass.


Some of us were early, so we played bocce at Circular Quay whilst we waited.


Turns out I'm awesome at bocce.


Dovey's shoes were super sharp.


Hannah was just plain gorgeous as usual.


We posed.


We played more bocce.


The boys posed also. They posed the best.

I took a bunch more photos and I will upload them later when I am back on my own computer!

I didn't say it at the time when I saw him because I was honestly just overwhelmed by how goddamned good looking we all were, but I was so happy when I turned up to fancy bocce time and saw that Nick was wearing his ascot.

P.S; It probably isn't easy to tell this at all because they are smudged now, but at one time the bottoms of my shoes had an eagle on them. One day I hope to kick a door down while wearing those shoes.

For some reason the shots where you're walking away from the camera to play bocce look pretty badass. Almost like the makings of a movie poster.

How did you wear heels on the grass without falling on your ass*

One of my good friends has me on video at her outdoor wedding slowly sinking into the lawn, popping my heels back out again, and then slowly sinking back in.  Over and over throughout the course of the ceremony.  Good times.

That is actually Ben in a blue and black striped shirt! He bought that shirt a while ago and I finally got him to wear it. Also, my heels sunk in a little, but not that much; I doubt Jodie's heels sunk in at all, they were big clunky ones.
