We shared a stand at the Benahavis Car Boot Market on Sunday and sold some Fiesta Fiesta cakes....  I think the girls ate more than we sold!  I was very happy to purchase some jodphurs and riding boots for Miss W, 2 sizes too big but she loves them!  She is going to ask Papa Noel for a riding hat.

Here is Willow earning her keep!

Had a fantastic girls night on Friday night at girlfriends villa as her hubby was away.  She cooked delicious Mexican food and did some killer flower arrangements!  Left at 1.30am and thank goodness we did as I had quite the hangover next morning!

Took my girlfriend to my favourite furniture and accessories shop the other day, El Trastero de Macarena in San Pedro (on the corner opposite McDonalds and next to Salamanca).  It is packed full of fabulous stuff .  She went crazy for it as well.  If you haven't been I thoroughly recommend it.  You need to spend an hour there just browsing (and dreaming!).  The great thing is that they have little everyday bits and pieces as well as large feature pieces.  I bought a cute pink koala for Willow, some rose napkins and a watermelon shaped rubber spatula for making cakes.

Here is Willow and her girlfriends in Puerto Banus.... 

We have decided to meet on a Thursday afternoon so the kids all stay friends as they are all going to different schools now.  OMG it's exhausting when they are all together!  Such excitement!  Notice Willow is prepared for all events in her safety helmet!  (We were actually cycling she's not just eccentric, well maybe a little...)

We stopped at the park behind Polo House after nursery yesterday.  So lovely in the gardens.  I love this bouganvillea in tree form.

Here is Willow wearing the gorgeous headband that her Auntie Claerwen from Melbourne made her for her birthday.  So adorable. 

Here are some arrangements that Claerwen has done in her house.  I just love these.

The weather is so difficult right now, it's so hard to wear the right thing.  Hot and sticky one minute then cold and wet the next.  Reminds me of home in Melbourne actually!  I think this outfit would do the trick...

Juicy Couture Dress, Michael Kors shoes and Alexander Wang bag
