OK, spring has been a little disappointing so far. Not only has it been raining most of the time we have also had a lot of storms and some really windy days. My plans for being outside more have been so far dashed, bar a few walks. To compensate I have been getting back into reading, which I really should do a lot more of. I keep buying more books but I am not reading fast enough to keep up.
The last of my fruit salad with vanilla yoghurt.
I have been trying to make a fruit salad once
a week to keep my deserts healthier.
A few weeks back I did some clay modelling with my niece.
This little elephant tea pot was a bit too delicate so I needed to do some mending.
I remembered one of my favourite sandwiches from when I was little.
All you need is toast, butter/margarine and sliced canned beetroot. Simple perfection!
After buying these shoes a month ago I have spent I finally
found a bag to match. I think I did pretty good.
I spent the weekend down south for my sisters birthday. I stayed in a
3 bedroom apartment with my mum for some extra luxury.
The view of the bay from my hotel balcony in the morning.
My sad little bookcase. All of my cook books are on display in the
living room but there is no space for these ones. I think I
need to buy a nice wooden case for the study.
I struggled to fit my new purchases in
The best welcoming comity I could ever ask for.
She was waiting ever so patiently.
Another healthy dessert with a little naughty caramel
sauce on top. Life is all about balance!
A late night trip to the airport to send my plus one off to Sydney for a few days.
I decided to try out a new idea, dinner in bed. Spaghetti bolognaise
was probably not the best choice on cream sheets.
Home alone with some freshly cut flowers from my garden and some girly moves.
The cute tea cart my plus one brought back for me. A gift from his late grandmother.
I was given some sweet stationary from the Cancer Council in the mail.
I love the floral pattern of the card standing up.
So that's it, another fortnight done and now less than 100 days left to the end of the year. It is scary how close Christmas is. I can't wait! My big holiday next year is also creeping up, which I am excited and nervous about.
Until next time.
Love, love Elle.
