The other day I tweeted this: some things I never think now about but figured largely in my childhood: moss, saladas, skinned knees and ways to bug my siblings. People replied with things that they hadn’t thought about in years and it was nice to reminisce. I also thought of lolly scrambles, building cities in the garden out of flowers, sharpening pencils and getting all my picture books and reading through the whole stack.
Home made pizza…I am addicted to this base. I’ve been making it pretty much every week with salami, capsicum, mushrooms, lots of garlic and proper mozzarella. It’s noms.
High tea at the James Cook with a couple of old friends on Saturday morning was awesome. We had teeny sandwiches and cakey things and delicious light scones. I had rosehip and hibiscus tea and it was a delightful shade of pink and v tasty.
So we had the final ep of Fall last week and that was awesome, and Sophie and I wrote a deleted scene from the last ep and that was awesome and next week we’re playing the start of the second season and we have guest stars. So much awesome from one game. Love it.
I had some neat stuff from Topatoco arrive today. The actually ugly duckling strip from Pictures for Sad Children, a Softer World strip and a T shirt from Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal that says “Oh No! I’ve become my mother!” It’s neat. Topatoco gives much of the profits straight to the artists so I know I’m giving something back to three creators of awesome. Even if it is a small something. Plus the delivery was much quicker than they said it would be. I went to Briscoes for frames for the prints and they had 40% off all frames so I got some extras. Nice one.
Old school cutes: slow loris!
Honourable Mentions: Basic chick burger from Burger Fuel, the house after the cleaner’s been, new T shirts, compliments, writing, editing, reading awesome books, buying books, books on the shelves, book memes, um, in a loop. I am also thankful for time alone, time with Lee, time with my lovely friends, watching Big Bang Theory and the end of Supernatural season 5.
And you my darling readers? What are you thankful for this day?
