  • I have a blog?

    Its been a few months. Not sick, not pregnant, not major life incident.  Just very very busy. March and April were busy with Commonwealth games volunteering- fun but tiring. Then the last month has just been so busy.  I don’t know what happened, but it is like everything got dialled up to 15.  Lots of…

  • Cookies

    I made some chocolate chip cookies.  I used the new york times recipe.  I blame this on my sister. Last week she texted me to ask if I had ever heard of new york style cookies. No! Apparently a cookie store has opened in Perth seeling these.  As far as I can tell it means dense,…

  • What happened to February?

    It was a crowded month! I am glad to have arrived march, but surprised at how time is flying. I got glasses- for reading only.  Not much of a surprise, but still.

  • Random thoughts Thursday

    The week seems to be  passing oddly. Tuesday felt like it should be Thursday, but today feels like Wednesday.  Watching the Murdoch mysteries on tv.  So many little digs at contemporary culture! Somehow i have managed to book something for every weekend for next 6 weeks. Not sure how that aligns with relax more. I…

  • Wordless Wednesday- details

    Gion, kurama, hikone, emu park

  • Making things

    These are two of the origami things i have made with my calendar. Just in case they are not obvious, this is a penguin and a dove.  So far the origami options have not been great. I also did some work on my rainbow.  I finished one off last week and started the next.  This…

  • Microblog Monday- reading and audiobooks

    I have been listening to a few audiobooks recently. Partly because my old phone is now basically an mp3 player on our alarm clock and I also now have audible on my phone. So far it has been mostly re-reads. I have been listening to various Discworld books at night. They are quite good because…

  • Microblog Monday – catch up!

    So, we are back from our very busy trip, and work was just busy when i got back. So i feel as if i am always trying to catch up. There are a lot of big changes rolling through my industry at 1 July this year and it feels like everyone stuck their heads in…

  • On holiday!

    Partway through the arduous process of getting to Europe. We flew from Brisbane to Seoul today, are staying overnight at a nice hotel (courtesy of KoreanAir) and will be flying to Paris tomorrow.  Now I remember why I have not been enthused about travel to places far away- the endless time in a flying tin…

  • Cake

    I survived my birthday.  Less traumatic than expected, not as uneventful as expected. Some birthday cake and celebratory drinks. Not pictured- terrible cake, small children vomiting and open mic night at the bar (none of which was terrible, but none planned).
