So anyways, I write this in the midst of self inflicted sleep deprivation.
It’s probably best not to go into details- suffice to say that I’ve been wound so incredibly tightly lately, that a little self inflicted something or another was pretty well what the doctor ordered. I’m not sure that either my scales or my liver will agree with that statement. Not that I’ve been near the scales in two weeks…
It’s been another chaotic week, but thankfully without anywhere near the emotional intensity of the last few.
Here’s a taster…five things, in fact…
Where we ate out
Sunday morning was breakfast at this little gem- Mezeme at Rouse Hill.
Hubby and I had lunch here the other week- it’s Turkish mezze during the day, but with a great brekky menu too. I had the breakfast tagine. Yummy.
It’s in a circa 1890s homestead- Mungerie House- that’s been restored by the development company The New Rouse Hill.
What I’ve been doing in my spare time (when I should have been exercising but wasn’t)…
I got the copy edit back for Baby, It’s You last Friday. And yep, it’s finished. All 98,000 words of it. I’m about to start the final stage- proof-reading.
In case you missed it, here’s the cover.
What I’m loving…
My new IP6 case from ibark. It’s made from bamboo and is called the navigator. Essentially it’s a sea turtle with a map of the world (sadly, minus New Zealand) on its back. Despite this, I love it.
I’m also loving this new nail polish (Mecca Cosmetica) that’s the colour of jacarandas, and a cheap pair of madly coloured earrings I bought last weekend at Fairy Bower.
What made me laugh…
Late last night we stumbled across a couple of guys doing a version of Meatloaf’s “Paradise By The Dashboard Light.” Yep, karaoke. Again, you don’t really need to know where I was.
Sure, it was a laugh, but not in an unkind way. In a I’m going to sing along loudly as well and groove away over in my corner sort of way.
“New York New York” brought the house down- so to speak. I’ve decided that there should be a law that only singalong songs can be selected at karaoke.
And no, I’d never do it.
What I’ve been reading…
“Mr Chen’s Emporium” by Deborah O’Brien. A tale of two women and one goldfish town- then and now. I loved it and have immediately started the sequel “The Jade Widow.”
How was your week????
