Reverse Travel Journal # 3 – Day 8

Thanks for your help tonight, i always feel better after talking to you, And i think i’ve made up my mind.

It’s been raining for 2 straight days but i had to take Lucy out today for a jog this afternoon, which of course she enjoyed as she jumped in and out of every single puddle.

Suzi’s friends came round for pre drinks tonight (and i broke my diet and ordered pizza…eek!) and then they headed out on the town. I didn’t feel like going out without you. If I do go out I wanna dance the night away with you, and we’ll do it as soon as you get back ūüôā

¬†Timmy and I just stayed up chatting and then off to bed to continue my¬† week long¬†‘How I met your mother’ marathon.


Good Luck tomorrow!

We’re over halfway, ¬†only 9 days left!



Reverse Travel Journal # 3 – Day 7

I have no idea why i was so fine with you going away. Every time we do this it is really hard and i go a little crazy and every little thing you do and dont do makes me miserable and i miss my best friend.


I went on my 3rd trip to spotlight this week to find out the fabric content of every material i have bought for this range. Boring! Then I went out for a quick visit to see Alison, who had put together a lovely poetry reading in Glebe.


Unfortunately i had to rush back home to try get the last 4 pieces of my range done.

As i was driving home through Parramatta Road i saw the cutest thing, couples learning to Salsa dance together! I could see them all in there, the boys nervous as hell and the girls smiling.It Looked perfect for us lol. p.s. you promised.

Nothing else happened today so heres a picture of my lunch…


Thanks for the video msg, ¬†i didn’t even know you could do that! It was really cool. Your hair looks great I love it!

Have fun on your bridge ride and take lots of pics for me ok!

Reverse travel Journal # 3 – Day 6

I’m spending most of the days going back and forth between over-excitement and severe -anxiety. I’m so excited for the next few weeks, but stressed and scared that its all going to go really shit. And even more sad because your not here.¬†You were really funny tonight and it was really good to talk to you. I forget how much i need you and rely on you in my life.

So glad you are having so much fun there. Thanks for the pics, it looks beautiful there. Enjoy Alcatraz tomorrow!! ūüôā


P.s. Goose and i are jogging every day and loving it (flea free since 93′) and she actually listens to me now that you are gone…

Reverse Travel Journal # 3 – Day 4

As i said before, i don’t know how much of my day is worth telling you about when i stay at home sewing all day lol. More fabric shopping in the morning and a day watching the red carpet for the Oscars (held near you in Hollywood!) the highlight of my day being when an Argentinian guy came to our door and showed me his collection of oil paintings (obv for sale which i had to decline of course) but they were really amazing.

I was going to throw out your flowers today but i couldn’t because they remind me of you. So i’m just going to watch them die. I think they still look ¬†pretty.


Sugar-free is still on track, although i have loosened up a little bit. Finished sewing piece 9 of 12 pieces today so getting pretty happy that i’m on track and excited for the Photo shoot.

So excited for you to go to San Fran tomorrow. Jealous.

Reverse Travel Journal # 3 – Day 3

Lucy was really stressed out last night when we went to bed because she couldn’t find you, she kept going to your side and whinging. It’s adorable but concerning how attached she is to you.

Today Tim, Suzi and the crew went to get drunk at Soundwave while lil’ ol’ Laraine stays home sewing.¬†¬†Lucy & i for a long arse jog (in 30 degree heat) and were both pretty exhausted after that.


I picked your parentals up from the airport around lunch and we watched the Mariners game, which was ridiculously good. Then, back to work. My posts for the next 2 weeks are probably going to be just me sewing, Lucky you!


Thanks for the Skype date (big smile). Miss you heaps already.

Good luck on day 2  tomorrow.

Reverse Travel Journal # 3 – Day 2

Glad you landed safe, sound and are already having fun. I Wish i was there with you.

Well, just as you guessed, going sugar free is pretty challenging for me, but i’m doing well i think.

My collection is on track to being completed in time, i spent all day inside sewing (it poured with rain the entire day anyway).


Ok so don’t hate me, but Suzi dyed her hair tonight, and we decided Lucy needed a new look too, so this happened….


Cute & trendy! She loves it.

Good Luck in the Main Event tomorrow!
