But money has been an issue lately as I still have not found a full time job for when we move (April 1oth) and since I have not been planning the menu I have been spending about an extra $50 a week and have been throwing away a ton on food - which I hate doing - especially when it's meat.
I also have a few photos of things that have been going on:
After reading a few blogs talking about a Middy hair cut I decided to go and get one. It is great and the hairdresser I had was an older lady and I explained it to her and then she said "It sounds like you want a Middy". I am so glad she knew what I was talking about. In the past I have bee a bit reluctant to tall the hairdresser what I want thinking that they may laugh at me etc - but all the other vintage girls having amazing hair gave me the confidence!
This photo was taken the day after I got it cut and this is what it looked like after being pinned for the night (but not a wet set or done very well at all).
The Beau and I went to the Blue Mountains for the day. It was freezing - the first real day of Autumn that we have had - the leaves were beginning to change colour there and while walking around in the bust our breath was coming out frosty. Here is a picture of us both together from a look out where the Three Sisters are:
I have also been trying out some new things in the kitchen. This is my new regular breakfast. It is like a healthy version of Bircher muesli.
- Oats soaked in a but of water
- Half a grated apple
- Some blueberries
- Greek yoghurt (I make my own using the Easiyo because it has no sugar)
I have found that it really fills me up until lunch time. Especially when I drink it with my whole pot of coffee.
This is what I made for the Beau's Valentine's Day present. It is a paella kind of. I used paella rice but did not add chicken or chorizo so I could have some. It does have seafood - prawns, calamari and Moreton Bay bugs. It was delicious.
Here is another breakfast I have made to try and use up things in the pantry for when we move. It is just gluten free pancake mix with pear jam and greek yoghurt. I couldn't believe how well the pear works in a jam. I love pear and am so excited that it is Autumn and I can eat as many as I like.
Finally, as I mentioned it is getting colder so here is my jacket of choice for the moment. It is a 60s number I think that I got a Salvation Army store. I love the colours and collar but best of all is the sleeve length. It would be perfect for showing off one of those bracelets with coins on them. I have never yet seen one at the shops - but fingers crossed one will turn up at Vinnies.
