Winning, pampering and dessert

1. After some - well, a lot actually - scrappy play, we win. Cue huge sigh of relief.
2. I spend the afternoon in the company of old friends and pampering myself with a back massage and facial. Sunday afternoons should always be like this.
3. There's a tupperware full of mini lava cakes waiting for me in the fridge. I know what I'll be having for dessert this coming week.

Friends, football and volunteering

1. An evening out with good friends to watch a movie. My friends are wonderful and Black Swan is a chilling insight on mental illness.
2. Score! My football (ie. soccer) team wins. We have a date with destiny on Feb 27.
3. I agree to volunteer my time for a jewellery-making workshop for low-income mums. I'm terrified but secretly proud that I've worked up the nerve to do something outside of my comfort zone. It helps that it's for a good cause.

Winning, a dress and ice-cream

1. We win. Again. I sigh with relief.
2. A new paisley print dress hangs in my closet, waiting for the day it gets to be displayed to the world.
3. There's time later this afternoon for a scoop - or two - of organic vanilla ice-cream. Life is good.

Victory, rose quartz and solitude

1. After a run of horrendous results, my football team manages a victory. In style.
2. I'm asked if I will make a bracelet and 2 sets of prayer beads - all with rose quartz - for an old schoolmate. Why yes, of course.
3. My sisters are away in Hong Kong so I spend the weekend in beautiful near-solitude. I read, make jewellery, cook pasta and play with my cat. I can't wait for another such weekend.
