Gratuitous shots of flowers around my house at the moment:
Have you seen a finer display of dahlia’s? Gorgeous things that they are. And as for those white roses? Quick sale cheap bucket at Harris Farm never fails to bring home the goods.
Picked up my prize money from the show yesterday morning and was thrilled to discover that I’d managed to score $6 whole dollars! Not bad is it? I was thrilled that I got a chance to talk to the cake stewardess who oversaw the cake decisions. I cornered Sharon to ask what the judge thought of my two…and it was interesting to see there was a little controversy. She couldn’t believe that they chose my date loaf given the colour of it compared with the others (it was much lighter than all the others…in FACT they weren’t even going to taste it!) but the judge finally decided to then made her taste it and they confirmed that the taste was the best! As for my shitty lemon cake, she said the taste was the best but next year I have to use a proper cake tin (I thought I had?!) as it looked like a slice. In fact, I think she said “a little slicey”. Loved the inside word on what went down at judging time. We celebrated at the pub with a few drinks put on especially for us by the publican. So kind!
Speaking of results, I am still waiting on them from Matt for Round 1 of Bite Club. It was interesting to see just how similar the two dishes were that Matt and I came up with given the broad range of things we could have done with the ingredient of mince. Will be sure to announce the winner on Facebook as soon as I get them through. I can’t wait for Round 2…it was great fun and as I mentioned in my post, I have a new dinner that everyone enjoyed (empty plates), that I can add onto the rotation and that’s the main thing for me. Thanks for voting and playing along if you did!
The other week in the garage clean out you know what I threw away without a care or second thought? Our pram and cot. Just like that! Does that absolutely mean that we are done with kids? I think it just might. The strange thing is I feel nothing either way. Do I have a cold, dead heart?
My sister and brother in law showed me this on Saturday night and anyone who has watched Game of Thrones needs to get on board with this (if you haven’t already). It’s HILARIOUS.
Speaking of watching, last weekend the girls chose Labyrinth as our family movie night and it was SO good to watch it again. I loved it as a young girl and am happy to confirm that all these years later it is just as good. David Bowie’s hair is a work of art isn’t it? Speaking of hair, getting mine done tomorrow thank goodness.
What have you got planned this week? Busy one?
How should I spend my $6?
Seen this Game of Thrones thing before?
Got any pretty flowers about at the moment?
