Loving & loathing for June

This video. Oh my. Lots of repeats.

Ballet classes. Naturally, upon watching the above video, I got inspired & have gone along to some beginner classes at The Space studios in Prahran. Loving it. Although get frustrated at my general lack of flexibility.

Tuna melts. A yum lunch for these all-of-a-sudden-it’s-winter kind of days. I make mine after this style from BBC good food. Mayonnaise & tuna & spring onions, covered in bubbly cheese & sprinkled with paprika.

Winter. So the first of June rolled in and so did the cold. Actually I don’t mind the cold so much (and let’s face it, Melbourne doesn’t even get that cold) but I do mind all these dreary mornings and early sunsets and drizzly days. Bring on the winter solstice so we can start heading back to summertime…

Scraggly hair. I really need a haircut. I’m so bad at going to the hairdresser on the regular.

Loving & loathing for June

The 2014 edition…

Unseasonably warm. It’s winter? Really? Coulda fooled me.

UnZud. Going home to the land of the long white cloud this month. The first of many, many visits for the little person. Can’t wait to lug the fatty boomba around my hometown as we (probably freeze our pants off) conduct our annual coffee taste test analysis. And buy him a copy of Poo Bum, a hilarious picture book which seems to be all the rage in Nelson.

‘Chopped power salad’ with baked tofu & almond-miso dressing. This is the first time I’ve ever used tofu. Seriously. I was… skeptical. This is actually a fabulously delicious healthy salad that even avowed carnivore Duffster enjoys & finishes. The dressing is satay-ish. Such a virtuous meal. (Best followed with massive dessert.)

Unseasonably warm. Isn’t it winter? I really do want to use my electric blanket. How spoiled I am.

Possum poo. It is like a permanent lolly scramble for the dog in our backyard at the moment.

Reading. So many books, so little time! Currently still slogging through The Luminaries. It may use up all of my reading allowance for the year still!
