GOOD grief, it only feels like yesterday that we were cracking our Christmas crackers, doing a tango with the tinsel and patting down our well-fed festive season stomachs.
Here, the Christmas decor was all packed away before the January 6 Epiphany - otherwise known as the 12th day of Christmas - and with it the extra festive paraphernalia I bring out to feed the festive cheer.
And now, we're days past the Australia Day long weekend and cruising toward Easter. Where does the time go?
I READ… Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project. I met Graeme, in a bar - as one does with literary folk - and over a glass of red listened to him explain his fiction formula. I hadn't read his book at the time so had to take his word for it that the formula was sound. After reading it, I'd say it's solid. His debut best-seller is a fun, friendly, what-will-happen-next kinda read. Have you read it? Did you find it too formulaic?
I WENT TO… Sydney's Amanda Palmer gig, hosted by the Sydney Writer's Festival. Again, hadn't read the book, the blog, viewed the Youtube video or knew any more about Palmer than what I'd read in the gig preamble. Hey, what can you say, this is one chick with good schtick.
I ATE… Well, the truth is, I stopped eating. I pulled up on the all crap I'd been stuffing my tired, defeated body and have been feeding it with good, wholesome foods. I've been trying out a heap of new recipes and have new favourites in the fast, easy but oh-so-good for you repertoire.
I OP SHOPPED… A new beach bag: it's something I'll be sharing with you a little later this week. How do you feel about op shopped cossies?
I MADE… Another tank top. This time recycled from an op-shopped skirt I'd had my wear from. That's a fair life for that piece of clothing. Thrifted and well-worn by me, then recycled into something new for my wardrobe.
