So I’m having a lot of fun here. Are you enjoying these lists or are you bored to tears?
This latest list is pretty much a summary of my day. If I could draw, I’d turn this into an infographic!
Things I do every day:
Hit snooze at least twice
Reluctantly wake up
Think about exercising more
Wash my hair, tie it in a top knot
Moisturise – feet, hands and face
Put on foundation
Check social media news feeds
Drink tap water
Read the news
Read a book
Roll my eyes
Use every swear word ever invented. Make up a few for good measure
Chat (too much)
Read blogs, read email, read texts
Put together a special dish I call dinner
Acknowledge that I’m unreasonably obsessed with clean benchtops
Put on a sarong
Pop pills – of the vitamin variety
Count my blessings
Say I love you
It’s the most important meal of the day but also my least favourite meal of the day. I am the most boring breakfast person in the world. I pretty much only eat:
This recipe is my current fav. I make it before I go to bed, ready for the next morning.
Avocado on toast with salt and pepper
My Mum always makes this for me when I stay at her house and it’s the only thing I can handle salt being added to.
Or fruit salad if I have the time.
I like plain Greek yoghurt – no sugar!
On the weekend I like to have scrambled eggs or hard boiled. No soft, runny yokes for me, oh no thanks.
With anything, on anything. Toast, bagels, cream cheese, ricotta cheese, capers – whatever the format, I’m a fan.
Now send me some inspiration please, how do you like to break your fast?
I feel that I’ve spent a lot of time talking about flowers on my blog. But flowers are so wonderful that I guess that’s not such a bad thing, right?
I love most flowers but I lean towards big flowers with big petals, rather than the dainty variety. Although cute little flowers like snap dragons and pansies, make me think of my Mum. Her garden is filled with mini pretties.
I’ve been learning more about flowers lately because my Mum and my Mumzy-in-law are both totes in the know. So whenever they mention something about a particular variety, I actively fill the info away in my noggin.
My most favourite, favourites are below. I used to have a think for orchids but not so much any more.
Dahlias (my best!)
David Austin Roses
Red hot pokers
Poppies (which I think are also called Cosmos?)
Native Aussie blossoms
Don’t you love how you can smell a perfume or a spice and be transported back in time? Smell is a powerful sense that often evokes long forgotten memories
Getting a whiff of cinnamon reminds me of my Grandmother’s kitchen
The fragrance of guava plants takes me back to the school playground
Freshly baked bread makes me think of my Dad
Frying onions causes an instantaneous hankering for a BBQ
Coffee smells like early mornings
Fabric softener reminds me of borrowing a high school boyfriend’s jumper
Pesto being whipped into submission in the food processor will always make me think of our friend Cindy’s kitchen
Clean linen soothes my tired mind and body
Sunscreen quickly transports me to the beach
Petrichor, for me is synonymous with a very good mood
The smell of Early Grey makes me think of tea sets that tinkle and rattle at every touch
What smells transport you to another time or place?
