Today is a public holiday in Brisbane (Royal Exhibition, or Ekka holiday). I had all these grand plans to write all day, but it’s kind of overcast and cool, and I just don’t feel like it.
Besides, sometimes we all just get a bit fatigued with talking about the tough stuff.
So instead I’ll share some photos with you.
Take a look at what I’ve made in my Thermomix lately:
These are just a few of the delicious things I’ve whipped up in it. I’m having a great time experimenting and re-discovering flavours and textures that I had long forgotten.
My friend Kylie (aka Toots) found me these AWESOME leopard print Chucks in the UK. I love them to bits, but they don’t quite make up for how much I am missing Toots while she is off travelling.
I tried to dye my hair pillar box red last weekend. I’m not having much success with Manic Panic dyes, even though I buy the amplified range that are supposed to be bolder colours and longer lasting. I bleached out what was there (a kind of grey-purple) and discovered this rather awesome minty colour under the bleach:
Sadly it didn’t last, and went to a weird kind of muddy colour overnight. So I used Manic Panic Amplified in Pillar Box Red, and got this:
It faded REALLY quickly. By yesterday (Tuesday) it was bright orange. Three days.
My friend Nadia and I and another friend of hers went and saw Dylan Moran live and had dinner at the Bamboo Basket at South Bank (their soup dumplings are so delicious I could cry!)
Oh, and Nadia took an OOTD picture for me.

Oh and of course, the big news for me lately is that I have had more work done on my left upper-arm tattoo! We’ve added some more Rubens Cantuni pieces to my fat lady tattoo. Look:
I’ve still got at least two more sessions on this one, and then we start on the one on the inside of the arm. My artist is the incredible Victoria R. Lundberg at Wild at Heart Tattoo.
So, what’s news with all of you lately? Done any yummy cooking? Scored any bargains? Been to any live gigs? Any new ink? What’s happening in your lives?
