Sometimes I wish I could Yodel.

HA HA! Not really. But Zee and I have a bet going that I can't learn a full song on harmonica by the end of the year. She's currently winning.

I love this limited edition wood block print on a vintage map by Best Made Company! I think I need one.

Spring – so close I can feel it.

Feeding the Bump.

It's been a while since I was pregnant, but as I was cooking dinner last night I was reminded just how good 'Feeding the Bump' by Lisa Neal is. It's a book of nutrition and recipes for pregnancy – full of simple, healthy and delicious food and great facts. I cook from it at least once a week and everyone loves the food. Some of our favourites are Green Soup, Red Lentil Soup, Chicken Soba Noodle Salad, Bircher Muesli, Hummus and Tamari Roasted Almonds. I recommend this book to anyone thinking about having a baby, with a baby or who just likes healthy food. It's full of information and answers a lot of those tricky 'what can I eat while I'm pregnant' questions.

Five: things I love about Anooke.

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

This week our darling Anooke celebrated her 18th birthday. She is now old enough to vote, buy alcohol and cigarettes, watch R rated movies and get a Video Ezy card. Here are five things I love about her:
5. The way she shreads chicken.
4. Her astounding creativity.
3. Her strength when it comes to carrying a load of shopping bags.
2. Her vivid imagination.
1. Everything.

It's a lovers world.

Thursday, August 19, 2010

This week I have seen lovers everywhere. Am I just seeing them because I'm looking for them, or are people being extra loving?
I was stopped at a red light and looked over to see a couple kissing at a bus stop – It made me smile, but I couldn't help but feel I had intruded on something private, like I'd stepped into their little world.

I'm going to dress in tartan and ride away.

A birthday challenge.

Anooke turns 18 next week and we are celebrating the fact on the weekend. We are having a simple family affair with an elaborate cake. Anooke has asked for a croquembouche sitting on top of a mudcake and then drizzled with dark, milk and white chocolate. Mum is taking care of the mudcake and my job is the croquembouche. I will keep you posted on how this goes – hopefully it will be a stunning success and not a soggy disaster! I love the look of this chocolate croquembouche, what are the chances of mine looking the same?

My favourite game.

Saturday, August 14, 2010

There are those who can leave love or take it
Love to them is just what they make it
I wish that I were the same
But love is my favourite game

I fall in love too easily
I fall in love too fast
I fall in love too terribly hard
For love to ever last

My heart should be well-schooled
'Cause I've been fooled in the past
And still I fall in love too easily
I fall in love too fast

"I Fall in Love to Easily" - Chet Baker

Um, unicorn anyone?

Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Tick.

One days trouble is enough for one day.

I need to stop worrying about the future and live one day at a time. I fear it will be easier said than done.

I'm here; but where are you?

I'm trying.

I've been here before a few times
And I'm quite aware we're dying
And your hands they shake with goodbyes
And I'll take you back if you'd have me
So here I am I'm trying
So here I am are you ready

And I'll miss your laugh your smile
I'll admit I'm wrong if you'd tell me
I'm so sick of fights I hate them
Lets start this again for real
So here I am I'm trying
So here I am are you ready
So here I am I'm trying
So here I am are you ready

Come on let me hold you touch you feel you
Kiss you taste you all night

Lyrics by Blink 182, image via WeHeartIt.


Isn't Emma Roberts lovely.

Young love.

Call me crazy, but today I yearned for teenage love. For butterflies and hand holding. Long walks and scribbled love notes. For simplicity and anticipation. For days gone by.

I'm running, but can't seem to keep up.
