This was Owen's first day of Kindergarten. My first day as a childless
6 hour stay at home mom. After getting a few things accomplished off
my list. I then thought I'd go out to lunch by myself. I went to
Bella's Cafe in Parkes, NSW. The Barista or coffee maker took one
of my cards from my deck of 52 Cocktails and surprised me with a Happy
Holiday cocktail. It was lovely and I could have pictured myself on
Day Dream Island in Qld or The Dominican Republic sipping this in a
chair overlooking the water. Instead I had a nice lunch of pumpkin and
chicken bruschetta in the peace and quiet of a lovely restaurant.
I'm always keen for someone to join me so if you are ever in town look
This is my other partner in crime in this 52 week different cocktail. She picked Guava Bliss for us and swimming in the pool with this cocktail was bliss. We even had our own pool boy to refill when we ran out.
Unpacking my grandmother's coffee cups. Set of 10 at least. I found out they are the perfect size for under the new coffee machine. So now we can use them and not have them in storage anymore. Brings a smile to my face when you can use things instead of just storing them. (Especially when I am unpacking things and complaining we have too much stuff!!!)
Was suppose to have white sherbert and white bubbles but...... I didn't have that in the fridge. So it is Pink Christmas. Much needed in the unpacking hell of my house. All stuff from Canada is here though.
The new 365 day project. 12 colours - 365 Days. So each month I will choose a different colour and then do that colour for the whole month. This month of January is White. A hard one since I'm not in Canada with the snow to help me out. Keep looking.
My girlfriend Sam and I came across a playing card box full of 52 cocktails. So we are going to have a different cocktail every week 2013. I will post on Thursdays from now on. I was a little late this week. Week One making the sugar syrup for the drinks.
365 days of animals. I was torn about starting a new project or keep going with the animals. I am starting something new but I think it is going to be quite hard not to take an animal there are so many still on my list to get!!!!!
