I went along with the doggies to the memorial in Hagley Park, the main park in Christchurch and there was a service that included reading out the names of those killed and having two minutes of silence to remember them. It was very eerie and a stark reminder of how quickly a city can change forever.
On a random side note, something that really bugged me today was a group of women standing near me at the memorial service that talked loudly, laughed and txt while the names of those lost were read out and the 2 minutes silence were being observed. Everyone else was standing up silently and showing their respect and these women didn't seem to give a damn about doing the same. Reminded me how much I value respect, etiquette and politeness in general and how much it bugs me when people don't behave in a respectful manner in situations like this.

I'm not the hugest fan of pants. On me that is. I prefer dresses. they are just so much easier to find. And wear . And fit. These pants are pretty good though. They are high waisted and just long enough... but not too long. I just got these gorgeous tan loafers with some birthday money (birthday post to come tomorrow) and thought they would mix perfectly with these pants. I love that whole 40's/50's 'casual chic' look of cigarette or capri pants with an oversized white shirt and glasses. gives you that whole 'day off' feel and look. I love these glasses. I don't wear prescription lenses but these ones without lenses are so fabulous. Toto had fun in this photoshoot.... but what he really wanted was for me to put my book down and throw his toy for him. After a while I couldn't resist and threw his toy. Wee cutie petutie.
