30th March, 2009

I finished sewing my skirt! Afterwards I realised that the pleats needed to be unpicked, which has now been rectified. Skirt #2 is underway.

Note to self: dust dashboard.

Kermit was being silly. I rubbed some cat nip on his Kitty Kondo & he went nutso.

Tonight's dinner: fresh ocean trout, marinated with Teriyaki sauce, garlic & chilli.

Bake in the oven until cooked through. Serve with rice & veggies. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the top.

25th March, 2009

Part of our extensive CD collection. Thankfully Shaun is anally retentive when it comes to organising in alphabetical order or we'd never find the album we're after.

Top of the dresser. It's mcchockers with all my shit. I should tidy it up.

Our neighbours' passionfruit vine is out of control & growing over our fence. But it's pretty.

I love it when he tucks himself up - like a little prawn - to sleep.

20th March, 2009

Traditionally, if Shaun & I are both at home, we treat ourselves to takeaway noodles for dinner. Finally this week we had a free Friday night, so headed up to Hoi Gee.

I always get the Fried Kway Teow, with no onions, capsicum or mushrooms.

After a shitty day at work I partook in a Boag's.

Tonight I took advantage of Spotlight's 20% off everything sale to buy some fabric & notions (after completing my sewing course I now know wtf 'notions' are).

I'm going to make two skirts.

16th March, 2009

This was sunset over Coburgistan/Coburgscotia/Coburgambique last night. Although the clouds looked threatening, it didn't rain.

One of Shaun's bass guitars.

He tells me it's a Yamaha BBG5A with a flame maple top & gold hardware.

All I know is it goes *makes bass guitar sound with mouth*.

14th March, 2009

A few of my favouritest things (L-R):

Bubble O' Bill
Shop a Dockets
Raspberry Vodka Cruiser

I am classy & act my age.

I bought this fleecy cow print onesie for Superniece.

I sent it off to my sister today & instructed her to learn how to upload & email photos of Superniece wearing it to me. She is slack, so it may not happen.

I am addicted to this shit: SPC Raspberry Fruit Sorbet.

Our fridge. Some of you - one of you - will recognise the orang utan photo. The other photos remind me why I should visit my hairdresser more often :-(

Chicken buggers (not a typo). These are so easy & yummy:

100g chicken mince per person, mixed with whatever herbs/spices you like (I use parsley, lemon pepper, salt, pepper, chilli & garlic).

Plus a bread roll/bun with lettuce, tomato & red onion & some Dijon mustard.

9th March, 2009

I was reminded the night before of the brilliant copywriting of the Kraft Cheese Spread ad. All the live long day I recited, 'The dog's got the woshing!'

And yes, it has to be spelled woshing.

Geelong to Melbourne today.

Wedding Season 09 is over (as far as I know). Stay tuned for 2010.

7th March, 2009

Candice & Dan got married!

Their wedding dance was to Jamiroquai's Corner of the Earth & they had some slick-ass moves.

Beestings = best trivia team in all the land. We was robbed of the Nestle singlets, lollies & waterbottles that comprised 1st prize.

NB: UD doesn't yet have the correct definition of a beesting available.

Kermit goes a little bit loco whenever I put his blanket on the floor.

I love a matroyshka (or lots). Found these gorgeous flannelette PJs in K-Mart. So I bought them, only to find out their 25% off sleepwear sale starts tomorrow. :-(

It's the Welsh national vegetable, so it's a given that I like it.

Victoria Police took the unprecedented step of notifying Victorian residents to expected extreme weather conditions via SMS.

Poor Kermit is in the wars, so today he went to the vet. They gave me some antibiotics to administer, to help prevent infection to his torn claw. They're BIG tablets, so I'll coat them in Vegemite & hope for the best.

28th Feb, 2009

For Candice's hen's we started the afternoon at Madame Brussels. It is lovely there & the jugs of sangria & Pimms went down a little too well. Here is a rather radioactive-looking glass of Pimms.
