Listening to: I Know It's Over by The Smiths

On Wednesday we had monsoon-like rain. C and I were at the top of our street at a pub watching a miserable Jets game and when we went to leave the streets were flooded and the rain was the heaviest I've ever seen. Australian Summers (or perhaps just Newcastle Summers) are often ridiculous; extreme hot spells, thunderstorms and big rains. We ran home, got in drenched and cold, and found Mesca, C's cat, curled up with my shoes;

^ Don't mind the mess.

We've had Crust pizza twice this week, toooo gooood;

^ Vegetarian Supreme; Grilled Eggplant, Marinated Artichokes, Baby Spinach, Roasted Capsicum, Mushrooms, Sundried Tomatoes & Bocconcini, topped with Homemade Pesto Aioli w/ added stuffed figs. Nom?

C and I went to Spotlight a few days ago and I bought a new set of clear rubber stamps;



^ The glasses stamp reminds me of Carly. My favourites are definitely the bicycle, 'celebrate' (though I'm not sure what occasions I'd need to use it) and the glasses though not so much the shopping themed ones, I was definitely not born to shop.

Yesterday C's friend Sylvia came over for scones and tea. It was my first time meeting her and she was an absolute delight. I tried out making cheese and Vegemite scrolls (If you live outside of Australia, have you tried Vegemite? What do you think? I can't remember ever not eating Vegemite but I have no idea how parents get their children to eat it). Cameron thought it would be funny to take a photo of me cooking (because it's such a rare occasion). I'm wearing C's apron and rolling out dough with a sauce bottle, ha;



I received this colourful postcard from Linsey yesterday;


This cute little envelope arrived today from Amy in Brisbane. I must say, it was one of the best smelling items of mail I've ever received - It smells like sweet perfume!;
