Lately...




I didn't blog much last week I'm afraid, I haven't been taking so many photo's of late and for some reason I don't like blogging without my own picture to share. I think it has something to do with the limited hours of daylight at the moment!

Anyway I have....
- been out for dinner with my Mum to Le Provencal - seriously is there anything better than beautifully cooked eye fillet, masses of Bearnaise sauce and pommes frites, I suspect not.
- been watching the last few episodes of gossip girl from season 4, there's nothing highbrow about it but I do enjoy it!
- reading my anthology magazine, so good, especially when some Australian mags feel a little bit tired and repetitive at the moment
- celebrated Ozmas yesterday with friends, it doesn't matter that it isn't July yet. A car in the front yard with a tree attached, good food, some spicy captain morgans, bingo and kerplunk and some skilled balancing made for an entertaining time.
- been reading On Beauty since I was in Sweden, that is the slowest I've taken to read a book in quite some time, I'm not sure if that's the book or the way my brain has been lately.
- celebrated my Dad's birthday with carrot cake today

It sound like you have been very busy! I haven't heard of anthology magazine but I have seen that book, one of MANY on my list to read at some stage. Happy birthday to your dad! I just adore that cake stand :)

It took me quite some time to read On Beauty, too, although i read most of it during a stay in London - there was a huge blackout due to thunderstorms and i hid out in a Starbucks who still had electricity. Love your pictures and that little plate - may i ask where you found it?

I LOVE Gossip Girl. It is my one weakness. Well, that and chocolate freckles.

Haha Gossip Girl, i finished Season 4 last week. Gotta love bad tv.
The carrot cake looks yum, heavy on the cream cheese icing, just the way it should be!
Merry Ozmas! The christmas tree photo is hilarious, you've inspired me to celebrate!

I had a hard time reading On Beauty as well. Was left feeling a bit disappointed with it :(
However I do agree that cake stand is simply divine :)

Ozmas is a new to me celebration, Happy ozmas. That cake looks scrummy, and i do very much like the cake stand. Cheers.

I read that book quite a few years ago now and really enjoyed it! Her first book, White Teeth, I struggled with tho and that's the one that everybody raved about! I love your little marimekko plate..a purchase in Sweden I guess! Have a great week :)
