Happy Birthday Big Brother!

Today was my boyfriend's big brother's birthday, so he came over for tea and I made his favourite lamb shanks yuuuuuuuuuummmmmm

And I made these chocolate mud cake cupcakes with a super special surprise filling (caramel :) shhhh don't tell any one...) I'm quite proud of them really.

I don't know whether I should say this last bit though... But the cupcakes contain 4 full blocks of cadbury and half a kilo of sugar... Does anyone know the phone number for a dentist?

Vanlla Twilight

"The stars lean down to kiss you,
And I lie awake I miss you.
Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere.
'Cause I'll doze off safe and soundly,
But I'll miss your arms around me.
I'd send a postcard to you dear,
'Cause I wish you were here.

I watch the night turn light blue.
But it's not the same without you,
Because it takes two to whisper quietly,
The silence isn't so bad,
Till I look at my hands and feel sad,
'Cause the spaces between my fingers
Are right where yours fit perfectly."

I hate night shift :( I hate not falling asleep next to you... Instead I sit here and knit my squares that will one day keep you warm...

Kiss on your forehead

oh how things change...

P.S. I still own those tights...

Night Work

Yes... The old graveyard shift... for me it's 8.30pm - 6am. Right now it's 2:40am, so I'm more than half way through, but I am far from smiling. At least I have some of my favourite snacks and good old youtube to keep me going...

Step #1

Is complete.

My whole life I have been bigger than most, which was not all that great because I am shorter than most. One night in a drunken conversation with a stick thin acquaintance I complained about my genetic downfall. She suggested pilates to me because "it's exercising without really knowing you are doing it". On further research, apparently instead of building bulky muscles (god forbid...) it creates lengthened and leaner muscles, which in turn makes one more flexible etc (which might make something else more fun...) I also discovered that pilates can improve one's co-ordination, hopefully for me it will go one step further and create it...

So I guess now all I have to do it kick my cupcake and sweet tea habit, not likely though.

Here's to change!

P.S. Does anyone else find that 80's gym attire... captivating?

Today I...

Read a few more chapters of Sugar Babe, (finally) washed my car to get rid of the apparently radio active red dust all over it and made some yummy yummy chocolate flower bickies =]

I love my days off, I usually spend them by myself pottering around at home... If you're anything like me, you need a bit of "me time" to sort yourself out and generally just relax.

Almost Two Years...

It's about a month off two years since I posted here. Actually, to be truthful, I kind of forgot about this. One day a few weeks ago I suddenly remembered I had one of these things and I decided to google it to see if it was still around...

I can't tell you how weird it was to read those three blog posts from way back when. It was like looking back on my third grade handwriting book, if you know what I mean. A lot has happened in these two years, I have a lot of catching up to do! So if you're interested, feel free to check back on the odd occasion. I hope you enjoy your thursday, and remember to smile lots :)
