The Month That Was …. October

Another month gone. Goodbye October and hello November. Where is the year going?

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.

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…
