Back to the real world

Today is the last day of my week long holiday.
I took the week of work just to do stuff for me and I have had a wonderful week. I got up when I wanted, ate what and when I wanted and best of all did the housework when I wanted which I have to say wasn't very often. I thought I would have a sparkling shiny house by weeks end but I can tell you that it is not shinier than it is on any other Sunday afternoon. I think that just goes to show that I am not a housework nutter like some people I know.
However, I have done some cooking this week that I would usually take about 2 months to do. I have made spanakopita, two batches of cupcakes, apple strudel, braised steak and onions (well I am going to make that before the day is out) and my husband have loved me for it. I am not known for my love of cooking, perhaps that has something to do with the fact that I work full time and am usually too tired to cook much at night and too busy washing and cleaning at the weekend to cook.
Well, I'm out of her now to make some phone calls and get the braised steak and onions cooked so my husband will love me more!!!!!!!!!!!

I was recently in Italy...

...well my spirit was in Italy!!
A good friend of mine has just come back from Italy and I met her yesterday for coffee and a chat. She took me with her in a little piece of her heart. She sent me a postcard from Tuscany to say that I was in Tuscany with her, I asked her yesterday if I had a good time there and she replied - the best!!!
Listening to her made me realize that I really want to go to Italy and see the country for myself. She did all the tourist things and everything that I would want to do and more. She brought me back a glass ring from Venice, I saw one similar in a shop just around from where we had coffee but mine is much more special than the imported one because mine came from the factory where it was made via my friend.
Now I'm off to dream of Italy.

A small world

Isn't the world a small place? I lost contact with my friend from Brazill for nearly a year and guess what? Today she contacted me, I am so happy to be in contact with her again. she is a beautiful person and is a fantastic doll maker. She has a wonderful site here on Multiply but alas, I don't speak Portugeuse so can only guess what she has written on here at least. Luckily she speaks English so we email each other.

We are well into winter here in Australia, some places are colder than othrs I have to tell you. Unfortunately I live in one of those places. I just went outside to do some p[runing and my feet just about froze so I am back at my computer tapping away like I have been doing most of the day.

Till next time
