I'VE DONE IT... MARCH 2017

And just like that March is behind us, Daylight Saving is over and we're two weeks out from Easter. How does it happen? Are you, like me...

And just like that March is behind us, Daylight Saving is over and we're two weeks out from Easter. How does it happen?
Are you, like me, somewhere back in January, or worse, 2016?

This month slipped by so quickly, I had to think hard about all that's happened.

IN MARCH:

I WENT TO... Twilight at Taronga to see Martha Wainwright perform. After two weeks of rain we had a single perfect evening of clear skies. With a dear friend who had flown in from interstate, we enjoyed wine, cheese, biscuits, olives and smoked almonds on the Taronga Zoo lawn and lounged through an Indian Summer evening of great company and great music.

I ATE... Salads from the Arthur Street Kitchen Neighbourhood Cook Book. Every single salad I've made has been delicious. I make enough for dinner and lunch leftovers the next day, which has made me the envy of work colleagues.

I OP SHOPPED... A new pair of jeans, a Chinese doll, Milly Molly Mandy books, a 1950s biscuit tin, a pretty basket and four teeny weeny Tupperware containers. You can see them all here.

I MADE... I finished a bright pink pussy hat for winter wearing and have cast on a 1970s cardigan pattern.

I READ... I am making my way through book two of Elena Ferrente's Neapolitan series. Slowly. Much faster, and more interesting, reading is about Sylvia Plath's life in New York as a guest editor of Mademoiselle

  1. Milly-Molly-Mandy books - that takes me back a few years. Must read them again and reaquaint myself with Milly-Molly-Mandy and Little Friend Susan.

    1. I am pretty sure my love of a town map comes from the maps in the front of those books. To this day, when travelling, I ask for a walking map.

  2. The Arthur Street Kitchen cookbook sounds so good Kate...I wonder if there is room in our house for one more cookbook? Surely.
