Busy, busy, busy...

School holidays have been over for nearly two weeks and I still can't seem to get back into the daily routine. The days just seem to whizz by. Here's how I've been spending them..

Reading the Millenium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson. I'm a bit late on the bandwagon but they've been worth the wait.

Listening to lots of classical music. Henry has discovered classical music in a big way. He listens to it when he's going to sleep, in the car and anywhere else there's a player. He's especially in love with anything by Bach but also likes Beethoven's Piano Concerto No.5 and Mozart's 'Jupiter' symphony. He said to me the other day, 'Mum, I've gone crazy for this music, I can't stop listening to it and it won't get out of my head!'. Bless (keep in my he's only 4).

Making this Lucy's Tomato, Walnut and Pomegranate Molasses Salad (with our own tomatoes and the pomegranate syrup Deb sent me - thanks Deb!) and this Lucy's Apricot Almond Chews. Delicious...

Re-organising my kitchen cupboards. Over the past fortnight I've broken two glasses, two mugs and a vase. My cupboards are so crowded that every time I open them something jumps out at me. I've been meaning to do it for a while but these recent losses spurred me into action. As a result I now have three lovely new fying pans (replacing six dreadful ones that can now be found in the local daycare centre sandpit) and room for all my many, many, many baking trays and tins.

Researching bathrooms - we need a new one.

Looking forward to the launch of two of the websites I've been working on for the past 18 months - not long to go now...

Marvelling at the Google Art Project. Have you seen this yet? Check out this post first and then go and have a play yourself - you won't be disappointed.

What have you been up to lately?


  1. Hi there,
    I know what you mean about time...I'm stealing this from doing something else I should be doing......

    You're welcome...sounds yummy.... ooh and so does Henry...what a sweety..!

  2. Get back to work immediately! No really, thanks for dropping by. Hope everything is coming along for the art show.

  3. He he....I'm only stealing from myself......I just need a break.....It's going good thanks....I've completed one small installation and four drawings so I'm on the way....

    By the way lovely profile have beautiful hair....

  4. Our kitchen pantry cupboards are too high up for me to reach and when I open them tins or jars of food fall out and smack me in the nose.

  5. Why do we put up with these things Katie! Maybe you should just store marshmellows up there ;)

  6. Deb
    Thanks for the compliment about my hair - I'm blushing!

  7. Caz,
    Don't get me wrong. I have the coloured shells necklace too. I have quite the collection of bright and gaudy and over the top neck pieces. :)

  8. Wow ... busy times indeed! :)
    I've been meaning to read the Stieg Larsson books ... I've cheated a bit and watched the first two movies, but they were so good I'd like to go back and read the books now.

    I also need to re-organise my kitchen cupboards, in fact all my cupboards could probably do with some attention ... oh, and can you order one of those new bathrooms for me too!? ;)

  9. I'd defiantely recommend the Larsson books and the re-organised cupboards but I'm scared to death of the bathroom adventure - I'll keep you posted!
