The weather is beautiful today and although I’ve already had a cup of Yorkshire this morning, I’d kill for this bloody mary I had in Portland. Best one I ever had… so I had two.
One kiddo is at kinder, and the other one is systematically painting every part of her body with green paint. It always starts out the same way… they get out the newspaper, paints, paintbrushes, ask for water, paint three strokes on the paper and then ask if they can paint their fingers. Nek minute, they are covered head to toe.
I don’t often strike up conversations on public transport. I’m polite when spoken to, but I usually just keep myself to myself.
So one afternoon when a lady spoke across the aisle to me on a tram into the city, I responded genially – until the conversation took a downward spiral into jaw-dropping territory, which I was powerless to overcome.
Ok so not exactly tea, but pretty tea cups! Besides, it’s chocolate rice pudding and who doesn’t want that? You can get the recipe here, along with three other ideas for leftover rice because we all know it’s impossible to figure out how much to make and you’re there with 82 bags in the freezer and a bowlful in the fridge.
Well I finally got my sick-of-winter-wish and now Melbourne is sweltering through a heatwave. Of course I’m overjoyed, but also a. slightly concerned because our earth is melting, and b. tomorrow will be 17 degrees and I will barely cope.
Ok so a few months ago, I travelled to Portland to attend the World Domination Summit, not knowing what to expect. Apparently it’s all about “living a remarkable life in a conventional world”, and I definitely met some remarkable people on my journey. The best fun by far though was hearing Robby Novak, aka Kid President speak.
