My I Spy: Something Beginning With ‘D’

Okay. I admit it. I have fallen behind a titch. It was bound to happen, but I am totally going to make it up to me by posting my ‘e’ thing on the weekend. I promise. I do. I mean, let’s face it, it’s very easy to fall off the wagon when you’re trying to maintain good habits and I am very often prone to these kind of slips.

Not only have I fallen behind, I have cleverly/cheatily and wordily stretched these tea towels to fit today’s ‘D’ theme. I mean, if I was American I could call them dish towels or something dishy, but I am Australian and we call them tea towels. I just wanted to point out that they are tea towels of the very delicious kind. In the ‘beautiful’ and ‘pleasing’ sense of the word, rather than the edible.

While I’ve got you, I hope you’re well!

I am well. I have been doing a lot of things, but most of them are good and I have been thinking about a lot of things and some of those have been good too.

Rin (my daughter who is 28) came over on the weekend and we watched Poh DVDs and ate a lot of good snacks together. We also watched cooking shows – the kind that make you really hungry – which sort of explains all the snacking I mentioned earlier.

It’s really hard to watch cooking shows and not get hungry, don’t you think? Unless they are the spitty, angry Gordon Ramsay kind of cooking show… Those put me off my food altogether. Also – those mystery diner cooking shows… they make me anxious and unhungry.  But luckily for our appetites and nerves we didn’t watch those kind of shows – we watched Poh. She is neither cross nor sleuth-y so we ended up super hungry and, well, you know the rest.

I’m a few pages off finishing my first book for September (thanks to #tenpagesaday ) – it’s Paradise Lodge by Nina Stibbe and I could not stick to the ten page quota because it is TOO good and TOO funny.  If you are doing Ten Pages A Day I hope you are enjoying not being a distracted non-reading type person. And if you aren’t … it’s not too late to start.

Apart from those things, I have been doing a heap of writing, which is always good practice and a heap of crocheting, which is always good fun. PLUS – watching the second last season of McLeod’s Daughters. The plots are getting more and more far-fetched and all my favourite characters seem to be disappearing to Argentina or the pearly gates… and yet, I am really loving the soapiness of it all.

Tonight we are having tuna pasta in front of the telly and staying cosy. It’s quite cold and rainy today so pasta and telly are really the very best option. What’s for dinner at yours tonight?

    Hahaha, the spitty angry Gordon Ramsay kind of shows! Just had to tell you I had a chuckle at that. Dinner was roast chook. I’m watching a bit of Kirstie Allsopp’s vintage home which I snagged from my local library. You can totes get away with tea towels for the letter D… 😉
