The week that was

Phew! What a crazy busy week it has been. I thought it would be fun to recap with some photos.

Bastille Day - View of City from Eureka 89 as part of my brunch with Mum.

Monday - Sunset from my balcony and a relaxing night after a busy weekend os shopping and girly treats with Mum.

Tuesday - Late night at Ludlow Bar in Southbank for a fundraising event for work. Tough crowd but managed to raise $6,500. Thank you everyone.

Wednesday - A sleepy me had an amazing dinner with a girlfriend at the recently opened Touche Hombre Electrica in South Yarra. If you love Mexican food, check it out! I can recommend the New Jack Cheese Fondue.

Thursday - Homemade mushroom and thyme pasta with Brie cheese and an early night after watching America's Next Top Model.

Friday - Thai food from Blossom Thai in Toorak Road and home to enjoy a lovely bottle of wine with dinner and a good girly catch up with girlfriend number 2 for the week.

Saturday - Snow falling in Martin St, Blackwood - Crazy cold weather for a catch up with some fundraisers at the awesome Blackwood Hotel. No ghosts on our adventure but the food was great and the fires roaring.

Sunday - Sunset from the balcony after a long week.

Sunday - Barley & Sweet Potato Warm Salad for Dinner on the couch with S and a movie on TV.

Monday - Dinner with S at home watching Hamish & Andy's Gap Year Asia. (A nice tradition that started a couple of months ago when it was all about Game of Thrones Season 3.)

Tuesday - Lights of the MCG for the Liverpool Soccer Club training session (S is there somewhere soaking up the atmosphere and watching his favourite team in action.)

Thoughts and Feelings

Hi all,

It's such a great feeling to know that I have a place to to put my thoughts. Whether anyone reads them, or takes them on board, isn't really the point. It's about a safe place to download and share. The good, the bad, the exciting and the ugly.

While those close to me will know that the last 12 months have been tough and the last 6 more so, others will probably not have noticed a change in the business as usual version of me.  (aside from a lack of posting anything). Up until recently, I prided myself on that. On projecting that veneer to the world that everything is ok. But honestly inside I am sad. And it made me realise that we put on this veneer, this mask as if being the real version of ourselves would not be liked and accepted. That people would shun us and think less of us for showing our really feelings and our real lives.

In this day of social media and the desire to share the best bits of our lives with everyone (those we know and those we don't), have w…

Crushing on....

Do you ever get so obsessed with something that it's all you can think about? For an example a song, a dress, a culture or a food. I do. A lot. So I thought to help my obsession or to maybe even get me over my current obsessions I thought I would share them.

Food - Avocado and Feta Mash. Simple and oh so tasty. Just mash an avocado together with crumbled feta  Serve on toast, with tortilla chips, as a dish with poached eggs. Almost anywhere. Try adding extras like lemon juice, chopped tomatoes or fresh herbs. If you are in Melbourne head to Moulin Noir in Port Melbourne who do a mean version.Movie - So I am going to cheat here and go with a franchise of AMAZING movies. Fast & The Furious. Absolutely obsessed with these. and there is a new one out, Fast & Furious 6. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker,  fast cars and non stop action. Do I need to say more? Looking forward to seeing it this weekSong - Oh so hard to pick one but going with my movie theme it would have to be We Own It by 2…
