A weekend with Mum

Another lovely weekend has sped past with my Mum. Every 6 weeks we get together at my place for a girly weekend of food, shopping and getting our hair done. This weekend has been another weekend full of memories and great times. Here's a little snapshot.

Friday night was full of gossip and catching up. Dinner was home made thai chicken noodle box that wouldn't have looked out of place at any good noodle box!
Dreaming of our own French Chateau. A spare $2mil Euro's and this would be ours.

Saturday morning was off to get our hair done. Lots of gossip and a few hours later we were glam and ready for action. A late lunch and a stop into Flight Centre for some holiday ideas and it was home to rest our weary legs and watch some America's Top Model before leftovers for dinner.

Sunday was sleep in day. Chatting for a few hours before off to our favourite French cafe in Port Melbourne, Moulin Noir, for some brunch.

Another fabulous long weekend together. Thanks Mum. I'm off to dream of sunshine and finish planning my holiday.

Here's hoping....

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…
