Frocktober 2015: Dress Memory

This week, I hung up all the donated frocks I have recieved.
I’d had a stressful day at work and was feeling a tad overwhelmed; so I needed a orderly task to calm my brain.

Seeing all the frocks, I am amazed. How lucky have I been to get so many wonderful dresses from so many wonderful women?!

My Two Cents: Tony Ab-boot-ed Out of Power

Tonight Tony Abbott was voted out of his position as Prime Minister by the Liberal Party.

Australia hasn’t had a Prime Minister complete a full term of Government since John Howard in 2007.
