Of Post-It Notes and Tape Dispenser

Today is the first day since I arrived back in Melbourne that I woke up feeling slightly more positive.

I'm still terribly homesick and having difficulties adjusting to being on my own, but at least today, I'm starting to appreciate that it's a beautiful sunny autumn day out there.

The sunlight is warm and the air is crisp, it's the perfect day to sit in the sun for an afternoon cuppa, or for a slow stroll at the park.

I love Melbourne, I do. I just wish that I didn't have to be here all by myself and my Bee could be with me too.


Anyhoo, to cheer myself up, I went downstairs and bought stationeries. Call me weird, but labels, glue sticks, and freshly sharpened pencils make me happy.

And I'm telling ya, for a stationery freak to live above a huge Officeworks is like a diabetic having to live next to Krispy Kreme. Imagine walking past your favourite candy store everyday! :|

Though I have to admit that I've been away for long enough to make me think twice about paying AU$20 for a stack of Post-it's, but I have an even bigger soft spot for colourful papers and stickers so I caved anyway. *Shrugs*

Maybe someday I'll show you my stationery collection, but then you'd probably just start thinking that I'm a bigger freak than what I've already told you about. Haha.

I hope everyone else is having a great day. And do leave a comment to tell me what made you happy today. :)

Signing out.

I love stationery too!! But only cutesy ones, hahaha. Aw I know what you mean, I'd be sad too if I had to be somewhere all by myself.

What makes me happy this week is my upcoming trip to Cameron Highlands this weekend with my dear family. :) I can't wait!

Good to hear that you're feeling better. I'm enjoying the great autumn weather too, but it's getting cold real fast.
I too am addicted to colourful stationary. My two favourite places to shop are stationary warehouse and supermarket! HAHAHA.

Comment to the post, "Depression": Take care, dear. It's just the matter of time for you to get used to the life there again.

Fuzkittie: I love cutesy stationeries too! Though I try to use less of them these days as people think I'm kiddy enough as it is. :|

Sdovelly: I miss my mummy's cooking too. :(

MisSmall said...

Iamthewitch: I've only been to Cameron Highlands once but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I especially miss the steamboat with organic vegies which is practically served in every restaurant that opens at night. Ahh...nothing beats a hot pot on a cold night huh? :)

Cc: Ooo...you guys have a stationery warehouse?! @_@ Now that definitely sounds like a place that I can lose myself in. Haha.

MisSmall said...

Emotionalistic: Yay for no work! :)

Che-Cheh: You were once? Not anymore? Aww...come back to the club! :P

MisSmall said...

Renaye: No amount of Tim Tam is enough to cheer me up now, gal. :(

Oh, did you hear that Tim Tam's has been banned by Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore from council events for fear they're partially produced through cruel child labour on Africa's Ivory Coast?

Emotionalistic: Thanks, sweetie. I sure hope so. The thing is, I actually much prefer my life here. The only thing that I can't get used to, even after so many years, is being so far away from my loved ones. :(
