A quick succession of busy nothings

Oh Livejournal! So glad you are back! I have been trying to fill the hole with some other sites – twitter is becoming a bit of a staple and I have just discovered Pinterest. Is anyone else out there using Pinterest? (My user name is still spally…!)


This time next week I will be at the market, running a stall for the first time. I’m pretty excited, with a little bit of terror thrown into the mix. At least I will be there with my friend Celia, and not doing it alone is making is much less scary. I’m hoping the weather holds and that I can get everything organised in time.


Last night Matt and I broke a record for the number of people in our apartment at one time. The geography-plus-everyone-else kids came over for dinner and somehow we managed to sit and feed fourteen people. Admittedly a lot of people had to bring things to sit on, and things to eat with, but it all worked and I had a wonderful time. I also learnt how to cook heaps of neat things in preparation, like Massaman curry, roasted pumpkin soup and stewed apples. Lifetime skills!


My sister did a shift as a cheerleader for the Sydney Roosters last night. It was just filling in for someone else – hopefully not permanent! I had this weird sensation of disappointment and pride when I saw pictures on facebook. It’s so great that she is doing something she loves but there is so much wrong with the cheerleading culture I don’t even know where to begin.


I started watching some Jane Eyre adaptations after re-reading the novel (thanks for the tips, ringsandcoffee!). The one with Ciaran Hinds was OK (that’s all I will say about it, to try and mask my disappointment). Now I am onto the recent miniseries. I’m excited because:

1. It has the cute actress that played Lucy in Narnia
2. So far they haven’t dumbed down the religious parts of the characters as much as the other version I watched – although I am only 20 minutes in so I’m not sure what is going to happen from now on!


I wish there were three days to a weekend.


“Oh I love you a lot. I love you from the top of my heart.”

      Yay! It’s in Marrickville in the big community space on Addidson rd next Sunday.
      We will be selling jewellery though – I’m not sure how much of it will suit you 😛

    Ha ha ha I can’t even remember the one with Ciarand…except that I didn’t hate it. I do want to watch JE soon, both the miniseries and the new movie that comes out on dvd in 2 weeks.

    I watched Persuasion last night, the newer one. Love it.
